Today’s energy system is largely built on parallel, vertical energy value chains (power, gas, heating, and transport), which rigidly link specific energy resources with specific end-use sectors. This model cannot deliver a climate-neutral economy because it is technically and economically inefficient.

The decarbonised European energy system of the future will be built on energy system integration, defined by the EU as “the coordinated planning and operation of the energy system as a whole, across multiple energy carriers, infrastructures, and consumption sectors.”

During this webinar, New Energy Coalition’s system integration manager, Mark de la Vieter, will cover the implications that energy system integration has on the energy sector and why there is a need for a systems approach.
