On 9 December 2021, ETIPWind organised an online webinar on ‘Electricity grids for a climate-neutral Europe’.

To help deliver on the EU’s ambitious climate and energy targets, ETIPWind gathered energy experts to identify the key building blocks and technology solutions that will make Europe’s grids fit for a renewables-based energy system. The outcomes are spelled out in the ‘Electricity grids for a climate-neutral Europe’ factsheet. The factsheet builds on the ‘Getting fit for 55 and set for 2050: Electrifying Europe with wind energy’ report published by ETIPWind and WindEurope in June 2021.

The new ETIPWind factsheet spells out four technology and policy areas Europe needs to work on to deliver the electricity system necessary for a climate-neutral energy system by 2050. They are: Grid development; Grid efficiency; System flexibility; and Renewables-based electrification.

During the webinar industry experts agreed that there is an urgent need to increase collaboration among stakeholders and to implement new technologies to deliver electricity grids that can uphold climate neutrality in 2050.
