Significant changes are needed to successfully manage and efficiently achieve the energy transition. New flexibility options need to be developed to control frequency and voltage and new technologies are needed to provide long-term energy storage, among others.
A new European legislative package is required to address these needs.
During this workshop, we want to investigate what are key elements of a forward looking "Climate Neutral Integrated System Legislative Package". The day will be made up of key-note speeches, panel discussions, break out sessions and a Best Practice Fair. In particular we will discuss:
• Sector coupling and integration:
It is a fundamental building block of a fully decarbonised future – with electrification playing the most important role. How can a legislative package provide clear rules while leaving flexibility to foster and integrate new technologies when they become available?
• Needed flexibility options and seasonal storage:
What type of flexibility and seasonal storage options do we need today and tomorrow? How do we deliver them?
• Better use of energy infrastructure:
How do we optimise the use and build-up of our energy infrastructure? What are the legislative conditions that enable optimal use of existing infrastructure and support collaborative planning within a system approach?
