• New solar forecast to help match electricity supply and demand in smart grids

    Using existing PV installations as power sensors, a project is currently developing a new solar forecast to enable better alignment of energy supply and demand in smart grids. By accurately predicting the supply of solar electricity, the collaboration between Ecofys, DNV GL and Utrecht University aims to support a smooth and cost-effective grid integration of large amount PV. The first prototype ...
  • Climate Action Tracker: India likely to overachieve its 2030 climate intensity target

    India is likely to overachieve its 2030 climate intensity target without having to implement any new policies, the Climate Action Tracker said today. In its climate plan (INDC), submitted to the UN late last week, India has stated it would reduce the emissions intensity of its economy by 33–35% below 2005 levels by 2030 and increase the share of its non-fossil energy power generation capacity to 4...
  • High share of variable renewable energy: Flexibility roadmap to support transformation of power systems

    In view of the growing share of variable renewable energy sources in the grid, a new roadmap suggests how to overcome key challenges related to the new level of flexibility needed to maintain system stability and reliability. After a preliminary version had been shared earlier in the year, the “Power Systems Flexibility Strategic Roadmap”, written by Ecofys for the European Copper Institute, has n...
  • Climate Action Tracker update: INDCs submitted so far lower projected warming to 2.7°C

    The combination of Government climate action plans, if implemented, would bring global warming down to 2.7°C,  according to an analysis released today by the Climate Action Tracker (CAT). On the day of the October 1, UN deadline for governments to submit their emission reduction targets, or Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) for 2025 and 2030, the CAT’s estimate of their impact o...
