This study is organised in three main parts: we begin by presenting the current state of play of storage technologies (deployment in Member States and key characteristics), then proceed to identify the need for various types of flexibility solutions at the 2030 and 2050 horizons, and finally examine the regulatory conditions that should be put in place to enable the market to deliver the appropriate level of energy storage technologies.   The three objectives can be summarised as:

The constant supply of energy is something we often take for granted. Securing that energy supply is vital. It ensures our homes are heated – or air-conditioned – that we can phone, use lights and computers and that our hospitals, public transport and other essential services, like water distribution, function.   How does the EU contribute to assure energy security to its nearly 500 million citizens? And what happens if the security of that energy supply is threatened?

Electricity consumption in the EU28 declined by approximately 1% year-on-year in Q4 2019, dragged down by stagnating industrial activity and a very mild start of the heating season. Of the major economies, power consumption increased in the UK (+1.2%) and the Netherlands (+1.3%), while falls were registered in Germany (-2.0%), Poland (-2.0%), Italy (-1.7%), Spain (-0.8%) and France (-0.8%).

The growth of output by privileged power producers is the main barometer of the development of renewables in Serbia. Total electricity generation in 2019 was 36,000 GWh, matched by consumption.   It could be said that the rise came as a result of the Decree on incentives for the production of electricity from renewable energy sources and high-efficiency heat and power cogeneration under which all privileged power producers have been receiving feed-in tariffs.

Renewables’ share of total clean energy generation in Europe topped 60% for the first time in the first three months of the year.   That was a standout statistic in the latest quarterly report on the European power generation market from energy data analyst EnAppSys, which also found that the impact of COVID-19 triggered a steep fall in demand and prices in the last two months of the quarter.
