Renewable energy accounted for around 70% of the total power generation capacity additions made in the EU in 2012; further additions target reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing renewables' share by 2020
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
A rising demand for electricity coupled with environmental concerns across Europe is leading countries to look for more diverse energy sources, which will in turn boost investment in their Transmission and Distribution (T&D) infrastructure. The latest research report “Power Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Scenario in Europe - Infrastructure, Investment and Regulations Analysis to 2020” ( http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/267300-power-transmission-and-distribution-td-scenario-in-europe-infrastructure-investment-and-regulations-analysis-to-2020.html ) states that key European countries, including Germany, France, UK, Norway, Italy, Ireland and France, will spend substantial sums on grid expansion and upgrade programs in order increase security of electricity supply, deploy smart grid technology and accommodate new sources of power generation – particularly renewable.
In this new, Aug 2013 research, information is provided relating to T&D lines (Ckm), transmission capacity (MVA), substations (units) and cross-border grid interconnections. Key drivers and restraints impacting the market are also discussed and information is provided regarding smart grid deployment in these countries. According to the report, European T&D grids are characterized by issues related to network congestion and the integration of distributed energy resources. The need to increase cross-border grid interconnections will be another boost to the European T&D market, as it could lead to competition in the power market and the potential reduction of power prices. By providing a broader generation base, interconnections can improve energy supply security and reduce the need for the additional construction of power generation capacity, states the report.
The report publisher’s senior analyst says: “Renewable energy accounted for around 70% of the total power generation capacity additions made in the EU in 2012, and further additions are being introduced as a result of EU targets on reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to increase the share of renewables total energy consumption by 2020. The aging nature of the T&D networks in Europe has raised concerns regarding the stability of the electricity supply and has prompted a number of nations to frame policies for the incorporation of efficient technologies into the grid. Europe is expected to invest heavily in the establishment of transmission infrastructure as it strives to create cross-border grid interconnections and harness the energy generated from renewable sources around the continent.”
