The Electrification Alliance

Electricity for an Efficient and Decarbonised Europe

Electrification Alliance

We are an alliance of associations that firmly believes electrification is the future of the European Union’s energy system.

Electrification is the process of switching away from fossil fuels toward the use of clean and renewable electricity as the main source of energy for all our applications in society. Many sectors, such as transport, industry, buildings and heating & cooling can undergo the process of electrification. It is increasingly powered by renewable energy sources like wind and solar and supported by demand-side flexibility. Moreover, smart electricity grids make the system highly sustainable, dependable and efficient.

We can avoid the worst consequences of climate change. Electrification is built upon reliable and well-known technologies with shovel-ready solutions. There is no more time to waste on uncertain developments that won’t necessarily deliver what we need.

There are four fundamental reasons why electrification presents so many benefits and can have an extremely positive impact on the European economy and citizens:

 

Electrification means rapid and sustainable growth for Europe
Electrification means decarbonising Europe and reducing pollution
Electrification means energy efficiency, consumer empowerment, digitalisation and innovation
Electrification means quality jobs across Europe

Buildings are an important factor when speaking of electrification. The Renovation Wave should include an approach based on our 10 principles for a successful decarbonisation of the EU building stock: https://electrification-alliance.eu/wp-content/uploads/files/position-papers/20200608-Electrification-Alliance-taking-an-inegrated-approach-to-building-decarbonisation-in-the-EU.pdf

The revision of the TEN-E is an important step for the EU to give priority and funding to future-proof Europe's energy infrastructure, but for a successful revision, our 5 priorities will need to be taken into account.

🆕 Flagship report series #3🆕

⚡️🔼 #Electrification (via e.g. #EVs, #heatpumps) of processes that today run on #fossilfuels will more than double #Europe's electricity #demand. More than 80% of electricity will be renewable by 2050; #wind alone will be 50% of electricity.☀️🌬️

The new report by @WindEurope published yesterday shows that electrification is the best solution to respond to Europe's needs for reliable, clean and sustainable energy. #ElectrifyNow!
