Alongside 5 fellow industry associations, CAPIEL, CECAPI, CEMEP, EuropeOn and SolarPower Europe, we wrote to European Commission Vice-President Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis, Commissioner Mairead McGuinness and Commissioner Kadri Simson regarding the issue of EU Taxomony supporting sustainable investment.
Time is running out on the EU’s ability to achieve its ambition to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Bold and decisive action is required in policy and infrastructure. T&D Europe welcomes the Commission’s proposals to align the main EU energy legislation to reach the ambitious 55% emission reduction in 2030. At the same time the EU needs to invest in the electricity networks, the backbone of Europe’s energy system.
Together with four fellow associations, EER, EHPA, SmartEn and SolarPower Europe, T&D Europe has sent a joint letter to the European Commission - DG Energy, highlighting the importance of consumer participation in the clean energy transition.
The report looks into technology options to deliver multi-terminal, multi-purpose HVDC systems integrating multiple converter stations from a variety of technology providers.
An optimised onshore and offshore grid architecture is essential for the integration of renewble energy in the European power system. To become climate-neutral, the EU needs 300 GW of offshore wind by 2050. The interoperability of multi-terminal and multi-vendor HDVC systems is essential to achieve this.
