Europe to Resume Renewable Energy Expansion Program after Pandemic

Europe has it in plans to resume its plans for expansion after the coronavirus pandemic. Despite significant interruptions in the plans, The European Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, addressed the concern before international world leaders during the previous online Petersburg Climate Dialogue. Daab reiterated that on the importance of establishing an initiative to restart industries in line with climate-resilient conditions, as the “job of any democratic government.”

European Corporate Leaders Community (CLG European) works to shift the European Union back to its full scale of operations. The community hopes to do this by advising EU members to place decarbonization as an essential part of their coronavirus recovery policy. According to Dominic, the move implies emphasizing more on expenditure, reducing manufacturing and technology that help restore the momentum against climate change.

There are further plans to have ITM Power examine how to integrate hydrogen refueling systems based on electrolyzes. The ventures seek to have the system integrated into the existing energy system. The prospect can also provide a 2 MW support for the existing system.  Energy production experts speculate that the new system offers a better opportunity for control and can be turned on or off to enable better electricity access and monitoring.

Connected Energy plans to be a key investor in the prospect. The energy production firm expects it is capable of supplying an electric charging network that makes 12 MW. The Sompting West Sussex region is the likely recipient of the 12MW supply grid. In contrast, the other region gets nine 300 kW battery-based storage systems. There are plans to also provide an additional set of five electric power storage centers with incorporated photovoltaics as well as battery storage capabilities

The SmartHub venture is the most significant initiative in a while, and it brings a considerable task with it.  The project partners plan to work together with the local government to provide a system that is both dedicated as well as promotes the venture into combating climate change. According to Matthew Lumsden, CEO, and director of Connected Energy, chairman of the SmartHubs Steering Committee, a venture such as this one is challenging, especially during a global epidemic. However, he ascertains that it is more critical than ever for the industry to establish a replicable arrangement that other countries can easily integrate. Lumsden hopes that the venture spreads across the rest of the UK.
