Energy System Integration

The EU Energy System Strategy rightly highlights the need to develop a future European energy system that is well-integrated. The enhanced coupling of the electricity, gas and heat/cold networks offers a cost-efficient and optimised solution, without relying on electrification as the only solution to decarbonisation. The intensified interactions among networks – in all directions – as well as with other industrial sectors will be instrumental. The turbine technology is a core element of energy system integration, bringing together the gas, electricity and heat networks and providing reliable, flexible and clean power and heat.

With the progressive introduction of renewable and low-carbon gases, the gas sector will be an important and sustainable element of the energy system thanks to its seasonal storage capacity and a well-developed network – complemented by gas power generation. For EUTurbines, it is essential that the implementation of the EU Strategy acknowledges and supports the role of renewable gas power generation to as one important component of a decarbonised energy system that is resilient and efficient.
