Electrify Now: End-Use Sector Coupling as a Decarbonization Speedway

Jun/14/2023 - 11:00 am

ICM München Room 13 A

In this session, we aim to discuss the success factors for end-user sector coupling as a meaningful and cost-efficient way of meeting the EU's decarbonization ambitions, playing a viable role in supporting large-scale integration of decarbonized energy into our power systems. The panel will look at what steps we can take to ensure that end-user sectors (mobility, heating and industry) become a conduit for a resilient energy system and a sustainable Europe. This discussion will be formulated as a cross-sector debate to identify the operational challenges and business opportunities that the integration of efficient end-user sectors offer for grid stability and decarbonization.

ICM München Room 13 A

Having a look at the energy transition today, we know very well where we are. But in order to find out what is needed to achieve the targets, we need to have a clear picture of what a future system may look like. What is the amount of load, what are the different kinds of generation, and what are the system needs for granting a reliable energy supply. In this session, we will have a look at what the future transmission and distribution systems may look like. We really have to speed up our efforts if we are going to reach our targets! During the panel discussion, key industry stakeholders involved in shaping the energy industry of the future will share their opinions and ideas.
