decarbonisation

European Utility Week is your platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. We host the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply. This is reflected throughout the event from the exhibition, where we work with the most valuable solution providers, to addressing the key business challenges in the Summit programme.

This report starts with an overview of the latest insights from IRENA, with a focus on the role of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the decarbonization of the global energy system by 2050. It pays particular attention to the five largest energy-using countries of the G20, namely the People’s Republic of China, Germany, India, Japan and the United States, but it narrows its focus to 2030.

District heating (DH) systems are key systems for the de-carbonization of heating energy in European Cities. In order to allow for this transition, while guaranteeing competitive energy costs, conversion of DHs is required. DH operation temperature needs to be reduced in order to increase the performance of renewable systems and operation criteria needs to be adopted for the introduction of weather-dependent, distributed heat sources such as solar systems.

This report by the U.S Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) shows that the United States can help curb climate change and cut its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 with an ambitious, but realistic, increase in clean energy. This reduction can be achieved relying on four key emission reduction strategies:

The European Commission’s “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package of legislation, which was presented at the end of last year, aims, amongst others, at accelerating renewable energy innovation, based on the EU’s commitment to cut CO₂ emissions by 2030.   With renewable energy deployment progressing fast in power generation, the heating and cooling sector still has some way to go to reduce the remaining 84% of EU heating still generated by fossil fuels.

Following the adoption of the European Heating and Cooling Strategy, the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA) has brought together a large coalition of thermal industry players from various countries behind one vision: the full decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sectors by 2050. As a result, the first ever DecarbHeat Industry Pledge and Declaration of support will be signed in Brussels on 11 May.  This will be in farme of the DecarbHeat Forum organised in Brussels.
