What is EU Energy System Integration ?
On 8 July 2020, the EC published its EU Strategy on Energy System Integration. Sector integration means linking the various energy carriers - electricity, heat, cold, gas, solid and liquid fuels - with each other and with the end-use sectors, such as buildings, transport or industry.
Linking sectors will allow the optimisation of the energy system as a whole, rather than decarbonising and making separate efficiency gains in each sector independently. The EU strategy involves various existing and emerging technologies, processes and business models, such as ICT and digitalisation, smart grids and meters and flexibility markets.
