Description (excerpt):

Europe’s energy transition is accelerating, led primarily by the twin processes of power system decarbonisation and electrification of end-uses in buildings and transport.

But deploying renewables and incentivising electrification is not enough. The underlying infrastructure must be prepared to integrate new wind and solar capacities, serve new demand and provide flexibility. This is where electricity grids come in, with a special role for cross-border interconnectors in the European context.

The present moment is a crucial opportunity to plan how Europe’s energy transition plays out over the next decade.
