More interconnected capacity and better usage of existing interconnection capacity is very important for the efficient transition and integration of renewables. However, although the European ambition is to have at least 70% of the technical capacity available for commercial purposes by 2025, we are currently at just 50%.

“The energy transition entails significant challenges. Energy storage can, and will, play a key role in addressing them. Energy storage enables high integration of renewable energy, brings benefits to the energy system, enables replacement of traditional power plants and allows more cost-effective solutions. We will have to ensure that half of Europe’s electricity generation comes from...

Electricity demand in Europe fell by 14% in the 30 days from 28 March to 26 April compared to the same period last year as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Combined with record solar output, this has caused a 39% drop in CO2 emissions from the electricity sector, wrote Dave Jones, electricity analyst at the climate thinktank Ember, last week....

“Hydropower today represents around 50% of all installed energy generation capacity in the Western Balkan region and contributes 35% to overall energy generation. Significant amounts of new renewable energy generation capacities will need to be constructed in the region if coal is to be phased out by 2050. In the long term it is unlikely that any other RES technology will be able to compete with...
