Today T&D Europe joined 26 organisations representing the renewable energy sector in a call to Executive Vice-President Timmermans and Energy Commissioner Simson to stress the important potential for direct electrification.
The letter states that “More than 60% of final energy consumption can be covered by direct electrification of final energy uses, such as road transport, heating and buildings, and industrial processes, with an energy system based on renewables. The upcoming Energy System Integration Strategy must accelerate the deployment of renewable electricity across these sectors, modernising Europe’s electricity grid infrastructure and driving the electrification of the economy.”
As Europe’s grid technology providers T&D Europe members fully support the energy transition towards a climate-neutral Europe. The EU Green Deal will play a crucial part in unlocking the necessary investments in Europe’s electricity networks.
