Catch Up - Connecting the Dots: Distribution Grid investment to Power the Energy Transition

We're sorry you weren't able to attend our digital event. The recording will be made available on our website shortly.

Key messages are the following:

  • European distribution grids will need investments of €375-425 billion until 2030 to be to be fit-for-purpose in an increasingly decarbonised, decentralised and digitalised power system.
  • Modernisation, renewables integration and electrification are key investment drivers. The infrastructure is aging: 50 % of the grids are likely to be over 40 years old by the end of the decade. Moreover, expansions and replacements will be needed to integrate renewables, 70% of which will be connected at distribution level, and to support the progressive electrification of industry, transport and buildings.
  • Despite average annual investment needs of €34-39 billion, the impact on electricity prices and grid tariffs is likely to be moderate if policy makers and regulators provide the right framework conditions and a smart tariff design.

We look forward to having you join us for one of our upcoming online events of which you can find further details on our website.

Our Power Summit will this year take place from 25 to 28 May. Please mark your agenda.

With kind regards,

The Eurelectric Events Team

    I believe everything said was very logical. However, think
    about this, what if you typed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't
    wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you
    added something to possibly grab folk's attention? I mean Smartgrid Ireland -
    Catch Up - Connecting the Dots: Distribution Grid investment to Power the Energy Transition is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post titles to grab
    people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly.

    I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show
    the same outcome.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth - Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! ...
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?

    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.

    I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
