Joint letter for ENVI resolution on EU 2050 Strategy
WindEurope and other trade associations sent a letter to Members of the European Parliament ahead of the vote of the ENVI committee on a resolution regarding the EU 2050 climate strategy. The signatories call for acknowledging the key role of demand-side flexibility to enable the clean energy transition. In most scenarios proposed by the European Commission the shares of variable renewable energy sources is set to increase. Ensuring decentralised energy resources (demand response, storage, self-generation…) can interact with the electricity system through smart and digital solutions will provide the necessary flexibility to integrate renewables in a cost-efficient way while delivering consumers with significant costs savings.
