2015 saw a record increase in renewables generation in Europe, equal to 2.5% of European electricity demand. But despite this, power sector CO2 emissions are expected to fall by only about 0.5%.
The current EU28 power generation market. Need for clear pricing signals to encourage investment (and retirements). Will firm capacity be built?
In the light of Europe’s ambition to substantially reduce its greenhouse gas emissions towards 2050, this essay provides a helicopter view of national climate and energy policies in the EU-28.
Power Sector Gas Consumption in Decline. The power sector has been a key driver of the decline in total EU-28 gas consumption since 2008. IHS estimates that coal burn at power plants in the EU-28 only decreased by 5.48% from 2008-2013.
In this paper we projected supply competition emerging toward the end of this decade and beyond with more potential for non-oil linked priced LNG from North America. A “foreign” gas-on-gas market price impact on Asian LNG market will be indirect...
Prices for flexibility are going downhill. Are we facing cut-throat competition? Temperature is rising in Northwest Europe..￼... storage closures are ongoing. Which closure level is necessary until the market price will react to the reduction of flex
Two energy worlds have emerged (1) The "Central" energy world focussed on contribution to security of supply, and (2) the "Decentral" energy world with it's focus on distributed energy / and dynamic customer needs.
The proportion of additional supplies needed will gradually widen from 10% in 2015 to 22% in 2020 and to approx. 39% in 2030. It can basically be assumed that for the European gas industry, which is becoming ever more dependent on imports, there....
The global demand for LNG is at record highs, with Asia accounting for nearly 60 percent of the global demand. With the demand for LNG also increasing in other parts of the world, such as Europe and Latin America, LNG is likely to become an....
