Round table discussion10:30-12:00 (CET)
- Chair: Georg Zachmann, Senior fellow
Electricity will be at the core of the secure and decarbonised European energy system of the future. Intermittent renewables will play a major role. But the massive seasonality of heating demand that coincides with low solar power generation, as well as the need to bridge week-long shortfalls in wind generation pose a substantial challenge to ensure stable supplies. While in the short term existing conventional plants might somewhat buffer the transitions – Europe will relatively quickly need efficient technical solutions to ensure stable electricity supplies in critical phases. The deployment of these solutions at the necessary scale needs to be prepared now.
