Gas can continue to play an important role in different forms of CO2-neutral gases, Jesse Scott, Deputy Secretary General at Eurogas, an association representing the European gas wholesale, retail and distribution sectors, told Energetika.NET in an interview. According to Scott, understanding the way forward for the...

With smart technology, spaces and workplaces are becoming more oriented toward the needs of users and can make their lives easier, more comfortable and much more productive. “But it is important that people don’t feel a slave to technology,” said Franziska Dolak, Innovation Manager at Siemens...

Over a decade ago the main topic in the field of smart grids was the integration of renewable energy sources (RES), but in recent years, electric vehicles (EVs) have been coming to the forefront. The latter (as well as heat pumps) can be a bigger problem than RES: RES network connection can be conditioned if technical terms are not met, but this is not the case with electric vehicles, said...

“If countries can value the carbon-free nature of nuclear energy, it can be an important part of decarbonising the world. If this does not happen, nuclear will still do well in Asia and other developing regions around the globe where there is need for electricity, but in the West, it will depend on the economics in individual markets and the ability of western vendors to reduce the cost of their...

“I think that the projection that there will be 200 or even more nuclear reactors built in Asia is driving the sector today. There will be a worldwide market, maybe not today, but eventually there will be a market for nuclear. And as long as we continue to promote the use of clean energy, nuclear will remain part of the future of energy. A major question that will remain is how to integrate...

Elektro Gorenjska, one of Slovenia's power distribution companies, is a successful business. Despite its good results, due to various external factors its main goal in the period to 2022 is to maximise the synergies within the Elektro Gorenjska Group as a whole, which is why its new business strategy focuses on the group instead of its individual companies, said the new Chairman of the Board of...
