FORUM PORTUGAL ENERGY POWER: Renewable Energy in Europe – until and beyond 2020 –

  1. 1. Renewable Energy in Europe – until and beyond 2020 – Rainer Hinrichs-Rahlwes President Porto – 21 November 2013
  2. 2. The United Voice of the Renewables Sector
  3. 3. Some facts:
  4. 4. Renewable Energies mature & beneficial • Renewables are reliable technologies against Climate Change  RES are (nearly) carbon free or carbon neutral • Renewables mitigate the risks of Price Volatility of Fossil Fuels  RE-technologies have high cost decreases  Wind, solar and geothermal energy are free • Renewables reduce Dependency on Energy Imports  RES are domestic energy sources • Provide significant contribution to Security of Energy Supply  Wide range of RE technologies are proven and mature  A mix of different technologies and resources is available 4

  20. 20. 2010-2011 Growth Rates vs. AAGR required to meet 2020 ambitions “In the heating & cooling sector in particular, it seems significant improvements in the policy framework are needed.” (COM SWD 2013 102 final) 10,00 8,00 “Current policies being insufficient to trigger the required renewable energy deployment in a majority of Member States.” (COM 2013 175 final) 6,00 4,00 2,00 0,00 Transport Electricity -2,00 Heat overall
  21. 21. Meet the challenges and reap the benefits of renewables!  Global uptake of policies for renewables: decreasing European share in growing global market  Lack of policy certainty in Europe (policy changes in MS and ongoing uncertainty about post-2020)  Stable and reliable integrated climate and energy framework for 2030 needed – including ambitious and binding targets for GHG-emissions reduction, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

  25. 25. Clear signal for investors long-term predictability of market volumes and direction  decrease the costs of uncertainty  facilitating the achievement of the existing 2020 targets in the most efficient way
  26. 26. Growing the economy Economic activity valued €137 billion
  27. 27. Technology leadership reap benefits of first-mover advantage  global competition with China, U.S., South Korea or India  capitalise on exporting opportunities in growing global markets
  28. 28. Replacing fossil fuel imports RES technology export instead of fossil fuel imports  550 Mtoe by 2030 (€350 billion)  equivalent to consumption of Belgium, Germany, Latvia, Poland, the UK and Spain
  29. 29. Creating Jobs
  30. 30. Which energy priority for 2043? Priorities now for the next 30 years:  fewer than one in ten Europeans think that unconventional fossil fuels should be prioritised  70% of Europeans think renewable energy sources should be the priority energy option  In all 27 MS, RES is the most mentioned priority for energy options in the next 30 years Source: Eurobarometer 360_2013
