Successes and Challenges of Renewables Deployment in the Power Sector of the EU

The European Union has decided an ambitious program to transform its energy system. A binding target of at least 40% domestic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 has been endorsed – compared with 1990 emission levels. Further targets include doubling the share of renewable energy in total consumption and increasing energy efficiency. Due to strong governmental support, the share of renewables in total EU power demand has doubled within the last ten years, from 15% in 2005 to 30% in 2015. But this strong development has a price.

Abstract

There are various possibilities for incorporating biomass into coal-fuelled processes and a number of

these are already being deployed commercially. Others are the focus of ongoing research and

development. Biomass materials can vary widely, although the present report concentrates mainly on

the use of woody biomass in the form of forest residues. Potentially, large amounts are available in

Global Workshop on Renewable Energy Integration in Asia

The objective of the Workshop is to discuss how utilities can successfully integrate intermittent generation sources.  Participants will gain an understanding of how electric utilities are mitigating the issue of intermittency from renewable resources through creating a more flexible system. The Workshop will focus on the following topics:

•             Increasing System Flexibility through Generation

•             Greening the Grid

•             Flexible Demand
