Webinar - Of Pipes and Pylons - Is Europe planning energy infrastructure for a Paris Agreement compatible future?

The Renewables Grid Initiative offered this webinar session for NGOs examining the recently published energy scenarios of the Ten Year Network Development Plan 2020 (TYNDP). These scenarios form the basis of European energy infrastructure strategy for the coming decades by making assumptions on a whole range of variables relating to generation, management and consumption patterns in a number of potential future energy scenarios.

This webinar session for NGOs examines the recently published energy scenarios of the Ten Year Network Development Plan 2020 (TYNDP). These scenarios form the basis of European energy infrastructure strategy for the coming decades by making assumptions on a whole range of variables relating to generation, management and consumption patterns in a number of potential future energy scenarios.

The webinar included presentations from NGO umbrella organisations - the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and CAN Europe - who critically examined the assumptions made in the scenarios of the TYNDP 2020, looking to understand where progress has been made, and where ambition is lacking if Europe is to reach its Paris Agreement commitments.

The session was interactive, allowing participants to ask questions and contribute to the discussion. This webinar is the third in a series of events for civil society on the role of the grid in the energy transition. These trainings aim empower civil society actors to engage with the technical aspects of the energy transition at the local and policy levels.

The webinar took place on Wednesday 4 March at 14:00. If you would like more information on the TYNDP and European infrastructure planning in light of the Paris Agreement please visit the website of the PAC Project - Paris Agreement Compatible Scenarios for Energy Infrastructure. For questions, please contact Andrew Carryer, andrew@renewables-grid.eu.
