Conference in Barcelona "Leading Practices in RES Integration: A Global Perspective"

The conference aims to showcase best practices of RES integration from different regions of the world. We will shine a spotlight on many different RES integration practices: from the Mediterranean, across Europe and beyond.

RGI-PIK-Mercator Workshop: Are our market designs and policies fit to reach the Paris Agreement? Perspectives from California, Germany and Europe

The European Union has recently agreed on the clean energy for all package meant to put Europe on track to reach decarbonisation targets. Germany is one of the leading forces behind it, and more broadly tries to get on track to achieve its climate goals. On the other side of the Atlantic, California has broken record after record in renewable growth and carbon cuts.

 

RGI and ACER Infrastructure Task Force Workshop on Regulation and Innovation

During the past years, many grid operators have substantially increased their stakeholder engagement activities, increasing transparency and speeding up grid development. These practices need a solid legal underpinning to be effective and consistent. We are meeting in Brussels to share experiences and discuss with TSOs and national regulators how participatory processes can be better recognised in national regulation.

RGI mini-workshop to share best practices: "Permitting, consultation and environmental protection for offshore transmission grids"

Marine renewables are expected to represent a significant share of Europe’s future renewable energy deployment. Guided by European regulation and the ambition to develop the European Internal Energy Market, grid developers are also increasing the number of submarine interconnectors. Together with experts, we want to discuss what we already do well and what we need to improve with regard to nature protection and stakeholder involvement in the marine environment.

Successful Dinner Discussion at COP24: Collaborative Grid Planning with ENTSO-E and ENTSOG

At this year’s COP in Katowice RGI joined the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E) and Gas (ENTSOG) to present our joint project on collaborative grid planning. The project brings together the ENTSOs as the developers of the Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP) and environmental NGOs to maximise NGO input into the TYNDP scenarios. The ENTSOs and RGI were joined by the European environmental umbrella NGOs Climate Action Network (CAN Europe) and European Environmental Bureau (EEB) as well as the Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21).

Video online - Webinar: How can funding programmes support grid operators in the energy transition? - Diving into EirGrid's best practices in grid development

Autumn has arrived and with it RGI’s best practice sharing season is starting again: We have teamed up with ENTSO-E to bring you a webinar that highlights the benefits and pitfalls of funding programmes established to aid the smooth implementation of grid projects needed for the energy transition.
