European Investment Bank (EIB) perspective on energy sector – EDSO views
EDSO for Smart Grids agrees with the European Investment Bank (EIB) that electricity networks will play an increasingly important role towards the future, realising a low carbon economy. As the European Commission estimates, the total investments needed in the EU distribution grids amount to €400 billion for the ten years to come, and so a clear strategy is needed to develop and deploy smart grids.
EDSO’s response paper focuses on 5 key topics linked to smart grids:
4.1. General energy and economic context
4.2. Renewable energy
4.3. Energy efficiency
4.4. Security of supply
