The key to 45% renewable electricity by 2030

June 17, 2015 – 6.30pm, Brussels                    Register Now
The EU has a 27% target for renewable energy in 2030. This means, in practice, a target of 45% renewables in the electricity mix.

This ‘revolution’ in renewables cannot be left to develop without a blueprint. It has to be a revolution by design to ensure it will be smooth, safe and cost-effective.

A thorough analysis of the consequences of a high share of variable generation for the European electricity system is critical to ensure its economic and technical viability.

Energy Post, with the kind support of EDF, Europe’s largest utility company, invites you to discuss the latest challenges and possible solutions at an evening debate forming part of the programme of the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW).

EDF Study – 60% renewable power

EDF has conducted an in-depth study which analyses what a 60% share of renewable electricity means for the European energy system. Until now, this has only been used inside the company for strategic purposes. To mark this year’s EUSEW forum, EDF has agreed to share its findings to stimulate this crucial debate.

Alain Burtin, Deputy Director Energy Management Programme, EDF R&D, will take you through some of the key aspects giving stakeholders an exclusive insight into what may lie ahead. Our panellists will debate the study’s implications and take questions from delegates.

The 90-minute programme will include

  • Introduction by Karel Beckman; Energy Post, editor-in-chief
  • Keynote: Diego Pavia, KIC Innoenergy
  • EDF Study: Technical projections by Alain Burtin, Deputy Director Energy Management Programme, EDF R&D
  • Panel Debate – moderated by Hughes Belin, independent energy journalist

Panellist confirmed: Kristian Ruby, Chief Policy Officer, European Wind Energy Association

If you have a stake in how the revolution needs to be managed then come and debate it at this official EUSEW event.
