Electricity supply

The success of the energy turnaround will depend on the potential of water, wind and solar energy, the impact of an increasingly de-centralised energy production, the stability of the grid in view of the strongly intermittent electricity generated from wind and solar sources, “smart grids” and energy storage. NRP 70 is expected to produce concrete, practical and economical solutions in these areas.
