The EU Strategy for Energy System Integration: what next? Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch Series
Faced with an unprecedented environmental, sanitary and economic crisis, the European Union is determined to turn the challenges into an opportunity: adopting the 750 billion EUR European recovery plan and making the Green Deal centre stage.
The European Commission’s EU Strategy for Energy System Integration published on 08 July 2020 has been timely and critical: achieving climate neutrality requires connecting the missing links in the energy system. But with mounting costs, not least for the decarbonisation of electricity generation, the roll out of clean hydrogen and the electrification of end-uses, it is paramount that market rules incentivize a smart planning and operation of the system as a whole.
Ifri’s webinar aims to discuss some of the policy adjustments needed to foster the smart energy system integration.

The European Union (EU) is committed to reach climate neutrality by 2050. Similarly, Norway aims to create a zero-emission society by that same year.
Following the 18 May Franco-German initiative and ahead of next week's critical presentation (27 May) by the European Commission of the European recovery plan aligned with the carbon neutrality objective, Marc-Antoine Eyl-Mazzega, Director of Ifri's Center for Energy &...
There is now a wide understanding that larger use of clean hydrogen in future can be an important mean to achieve decarbonisation of the European economy.
