time and place

Monday 15 November 2021, 15:30–16:45

What does the economic, regulatory and market situation look like for integrated energy systems in the EU? And which policies may facilitate the implementation of such systems?

Energy systems integration (ESI) has become a key concept in the EU’s energy transition and the European Green Deal. According to the European Commission, ESI refers to planning and operating the entire energy system by creating stronger links between energy carriers, infrastructures, and consumer sectors. Hopefully, this will result in positive synergies, thus offering a smarter and more climate-friendly energy system that is also more reliable and efficient. So far, however, only a small number of large-scale initiatives are capable of demonstrating how to move from vision to reality. Why is that?

In a new SNS report, researcher Carlo Cambini identifies potential obstacles for introducing ESI and suggests policies for going forward. At the seminar, his conclusions will then be commented on by Thomas Egebo, president and CEO Energinet, Alf Engqvist, CEO Göteborg Energi, and Emma Wiesner, member of the European Parliament for the Center Party.

The webbinar is organized within the framework of the SNS research project Energy systems of the future.

This meeting will be held English.
