If we want to ensure that the electricity distribution system operators (DSOs) are able to tackle the challenges that await them, we will need to secure a large amount of solid investment in the electricity system in the next five to ten years, according to a recent study by Ernst & Young (EY) and Eurelectric. The study stresses the importance of DSO transformation and the DSO’s growing...

“The next 5-10 years will be a crucial period for the gas community to put forward and demonstrate how it will deliver credible decarbonisation narratives. Failure to do so is likely to result in the adoption of electrification rather than gas decarbonisation options,” stressed Jonathan Stern from the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES) in a recently published paper....

One of the changes which could follow from Slovenia’s amended Energy Act (EZ-1) – the deadline for comments is 21 February – is the introduction of payable primary regulation, which the country’s electricity system, unlike most other systems, does not yet have. NGOs warn that this could raise the price of electricity for households and allow for the planned channelling of additional...

The projects of the Slovenian TSO Eles, including the NEDO project, have roused the country’s interest in energy storage and the related technologies. Eles is hoping to take on further projects of this kind, assuming different roles and moving beyond the role of a technology user, the TSO’s Strategic Innovation Director, Uroš Salobir, told Energetika.NET on the sidelines of Wednesday’s...

LNG Croatia adopted a final investment decision (FID) on 31 January 2019 for the project to construct a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal on the island of Krk, wrote the company on its website. As the capital costs of the investment itself will be largely covered by grants, the investment will have a positive return on investment for the shareholders of LNG Croatia - the Croatian...

In Slovenia, a growing number of companies are taking up electricity supply. Energetika.NET turned to some of the companies active in this field, as well as some large consumers, to ask them if there are perhaps too many players active in the country’s small market and whether we can expect further mergers in the sector. Some of the large consumers revealed that they would like to see at least...

“East of Vienna there is not a single functioning proper gas trading hub,” said Costis Stambolis, Executive Director of the Institute of Energy for South East Europe, on Tuesday at the European Gas Conference (EGC) in Vienna, Austria. However, Stambolis expects this to change soon as in “early 2020 there will be a really well-developed gas hub in Greece”. Meanwhile, Gottfried Steiner, CEO...

Energy system integration and sector coupling can substantially reduce the costs of the transition to a decarbonised energy system. For Germany, it has been estimated that the transition to a well-integrated energy system in 2050 with a broad energy technology mix would be EUR 600 billion cheaper than a system that is strongly dependent on electricity only, according to a study on sector coupling...

The number of incidents on the transmission grid is extremely low in Europe - only two minor incidents (scale 2) were registered on the transmission grid in 2017, both of which took place in isolated systems. “This shows that despite a high level of constraints on their networks, and despite a system in transition, TSOs are able to maintain a secure electricity system,” wrote the European...
