The newly announced REPowerEU plan comes on top of existing pressures to rapidly decarbonise the energy system with an increased target of 45% for renewables by 2030. The benefit of the sudden jump of RES will be increased independence from fossil fuel imports says the Commission and our latest event, brought to you in cooperation with the Polish Electricity Association (PKEE) is a chance to get first reactions from key stakeholders.
Whilst the European Council working group on energy gets ready to decide on the latest regulations across key Fit for 55 directives such as the RED, EED and EPBD, DSOs are presiding over systems which are often old and already heavily under-invested.
Rapid grid improvements require rapid investments so our panel will discuss what’s the vision, what are the costs and how DSOs can cover them whilst offering best possible service to consumers and the environment.
The toolbox DSOs can draw upon - digitalisation, reinforcement of the grid, distributed generation and storage amongst others – will only be used if the incentives are there. ‘Business sense’ is written into the Green Deal and it is crucial to incentivise DSOs to make the changes in the short term before the full benefits of improved efficiency and climate neutrality are available. Join us on June 30th and hear what the experts and key stakeholders have to say…
