REPowerEU: EU wants to break free
from fossil gas dependency
Yesterday (18 May 2022), the European Commission unveiled a fleet of energy-related package measures – REPowerEU – which details primarily on how to undertake an orderly and affordable phase out of Russian gas by 2027 while also keeping energy prices in check and green goals on track. E.DSO support the dual strategy which seeks to reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels and fast forward towards the green transition.
Christian Buchel, E.DSO chairman stated: “REPowerEU sets challenging objectives, but feasible, DSOs will keep deploying all their efforts to foster rapid deployment of renewables and their connection to the grid”
He further confirmed that: “As mentioned by Commissioner Simson, “the production of renewable energy is an overriding public interest” and so does the relying infrastructure in the proposed revision of Renewable Energy Directive. This shows how DSOs are essential to achieve REPowerEU objectives”
