The European power sector is undergoing a period of rapid transformation. Power generation has become progressively more decarbonised, distributed and renewable. Wind power and solar photovoltaics have formed part of this trend and will continue to dominate in the future. As these sources increase in market share, so too will the volatility of the power system supply-side. In parallel, power systems are increasingly digitalised and interconnected with other sectors and infrastructure. Information Communication Technologies (ICT) have opened new possibilities in the active management of power systems and strengthened the ability of the demand side to react to changes to the price of electricity. Standards offer the technical foundation for this transition. Our goal is to ensure a clean, smart and secure power system.
Today, the European Commission published two communications that are set to mark important changes in the EU energy system: “An EU Strategy for Energy System Integration” as well as its complementary “Hydrogen Strategy”. These two initiatives were preceded by dedicated consultations and add to the many strategies that the European Commission is pushing in the context of its Green Deal.
Electromobility thus has a great potential to become a key solution for an environmentally friendly and decarbonised transport sector. Moving away from dirty fossil fuels and introducing proper sustainability criteria for batteries are essential to making it happen. Discover our new report!
