EGEC welcomed the EU energy system integration

By the end of the year 2050 to be climate-neutral, the European Union needs a transformation of the system, which accounts for 75 percent of the total greenhouse gases emitted in the EU. The strategies set up by the EU energy system integration and hydrogen on Wednesday 18th of July put it into the functioning. They will pave the way toward connections that are more interconnected and efficient in the energy sector. The sector-main mission is to achieve the twin goal of a more robust economy and a cleaner planet.  

The investment in the plan can stimulate the economy towards recovery from the effect of the coronavirus pandemic. It will also create jobs and increase leadership and competitiveness in the development of a strategic industry, which is essential for the European’s resilience.

The energy system integration for the EU strategy will provide the framework for the transition towards green energy. It means the planned system for energy will operate as a whole entity, unlike the current entity used where the consumption of energy in gas, industry, building, transport consumption rate is in silos, and each contains separated value chain, infrastructure, and chains planning operations. A connected and flexible system is more efficient and leads to a reduction in operating costs in society. E g it means the system where the electricity fuels vehicles will be from the solar panels on their roofs, and the buildings will be kept warm by the factories around. The factor source of fuel will be the clean hydrogen from the winds and the offshore energy.

The plan on each step stands out in the three pillars, the circular system of energy, which is efficient—the end-users benefit from the electricity in the transport sector and buildings. The final stage is in the use of cleaner fuel such as renewable hydrogen and biofuel and biogas that are sustainable where it isn’t accessible to electrification.

The strategy for hydrogen energy is integration through the industry, transport building, and power generation decarbonization across Europe and the provision of electricity to the regions that do not have electricity and also storage provision of the balance intermittent energy flows.  

The EGEC welcomed the adoption of the European Commission communication about the EU strategy about the Energy system integration. The strategy will lead to the integration and acceleration of the renewable energy transition approach, which main aim is to solve the economy and climate.
