Towards a Green Transformation of Europe’s Energy Infrastructure

In our new position paper, we detail 26 enablers for the EU Green Deal and NextGenerationEU.

Rather than seeing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as a challenge for recovery, the EU should seize the current situation as an opportunity to drive the green and digital transitions. Europe’s grid technology providers support the EU Green Deal as the appropriate growth strategy.

It is now time to adopt and implement specific investment decisions. T&D Europe has identified a series of measures that will boost jobs and economic growth in Europe’s clean energy ecosystem, enable the green transformation of the economy and help Europe to become climate-neutral by 2050.

The good news is that many technologies are already available today and allow for immediate large-scale deployment. If implemented, together they will produce an electricity network that continues to be robust, reliable and resilient, while enabling Europe to meet the twin challenges of climate change and digitalisation.

Europe, with the most intricate electricity system in the world, can approach the current challenges with confidence: Europe is home to a strong clean energy eco-system that is capable to deliver on Europe’s needs.
