Why Energy Transition 2.0 Europe?

Energy transition 1.0 has taken place across Europe
Energy transition 1.0 has taken place across Europe

Renewables penetration grew by 67% between 2006 and 2016, energy markets have become increasingly decentralised and consumers are now active participants in smarter energy networks.

For European energy systems to remain secure they now need to take transition to the next level in order to:

  • Be flexible in integrating increasing amounts of intermittent renewables and decentralised generation into the grid
  • Accommodate and expand new solutions for low carbon transport and heat
  • Utilise digital technologies to empower consumers to access energy services in a convenient, affordable way

This huge systems shift will require myriad new technologies, business models and regulatory and policy frameworks to drive a secure, cost effective transition.This challenge however presents an opportunity; a more flexible energy system could save the UK alone £17-40 billion across the electricity system by 2050 and plug European economies into global market opportunities worth over £4 trillion.

Action is already taking place across Europe: 24 countries have invested €4779 million in flexible energy system research as part of the European Commission’s Strategic Energy Plan, and by 2050 there is potential for EU citizens to own 129 million EVs, 70 million electric boilers and 80 million stationary battery technologies.

Ensure that your business is plugged into leading on the opportunities presented by Energy Transition 2.0.
