  • Thanks for sharing. We are happy to discuss game-changing avenues open to the EU, and in order to migrate and evolve the present energy infrastructure towards a form which better suit the 21st century- exposures, realities and opportunities.
    Part of our solution is to run integrated Energy and Energy transition project definition workshops in the member countries.

What are the energy challenges for Europe?

  1. 1. Energy challenges for Europe Philip Lowe Director General for Energy European Commission 1EnergyEnergy
  2. 2. THE GLOBAL SUPPLY CHALLENGE- Increased energy demand and increased competition 2
  3. 3. THE COMPETITIVENESS CHALLENGE - Energy prices increase… Electricity prices for industry in selected industrialised countries (USD/MWh) ** Without taxAffordability of energy of increasing concern for households and business 3
  4. 4. THE SECURITY OF SUPPLY CHALLENGE- import dependency of the EU as a wholein % 2005 2008 2020 2030 2005 2008 2020 2030 100 94,1% 92,7% 80 82,4% 84,3% 82,8% 75,9% 60 62,3% 57,7% 40 20 OIL GAS 4
  5. 5. THE SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE - EU currently only on track for half of what is needed to tackle climate change Flat energy consumptionSource: European Commission 40% reduction compared with 1990 5
  6. 6. The EU ENERGY ROADMAP 2050 Modelling exercise showing how to meet the competitiveness, security of supply and sustainability challenge in the 2050 perspective 4 key messages: •Meeting climate change challenge not more costly than ignoring it •More electricity, more renewables •Internal market critical to transformation •No regrets: energy efficiency, smarter infrastructure, gas (at least for transition) 6
  7. 7. THE EUS POLICY RESPONSE (1) – Open and integrated markets 7
  8. 8. THE EUS POLICY RESPONSE (2) – Smarter infrastructure 8
  9. 9. THE EUS POLICY RESPONSE (3) – Measures on energy efficiency 30 EED costsBillion Euro 08 •increased costs for investment in energy efficiency- €24 billion 0 annually •reduced costs for investment in energy generation and distribution - €6 billion annually-30 •reduced fuel expenditure - €38 billion annually EED avoided costs-60 9
  10. 10. THE EU POLICY RESPONSE (4) sustainable energy •Share of renewable energy (% of total energy use) 2009 performance 2020 national target% 10 Source: European Commission

  12. 12. CONCLUSION AND OUTLOOK  Roadmap 2050 decarbonisation scenarios deliver on all energy policy objectives, even without a global climate change agreement  Make the Internal Energy Market work  Use energy better  Prepare for more electricity, more RES and smarter grids  Innovation: new fuels and uses  Define the 2030 Framework 12 Energy Energy
