Workshop - The need for a Climate Neutral Integrated System Package for Energy

Expanding the grid to connect renewable energy sources (RES) to consumers and to facilitate the use of RES across Europe is an essential and efficient way to decarbonise the economy. However, a RES based energy system will need more than grids to provide the required system flexibility. In our workshop, we want to investigate what elements are needed, with a focus on sector coupling, flexibility options and how to better use infrastructure.

NGO Training: The role of the grid in the energy transition

One day course for employees/volunteers of non-profits interested in gaining an overview of technical aspects of the decarbonisation of the power sector.

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

The conference showcased best practices of RES integration from different regions of the world. We shone 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.

Signing Ceremony of the Marine Grid Declaration - PCI Energy Days in Brussels

Increasing shares of renewables need to be integrated into the European power system to achieve the Union climate and energy targets. According to the 2016 TYNDP, it is envisaged that approximately one third of the needed future power grids, among them Projects of Common Interest, could be built in the marine environment. In response to this, RGI has sponsored the “Marine Grid Declaration” – an initiative which lays out a set of principles for the development of marine grids.
