Webinar ‘What can we learn from the COVID-19 pandemic for the renewable energy transition?’ now available online


On 14 May Hakan Ergun, Jef Beerten and Ronnie Belmans held a webinar on the effect the Covid-19 pandemic has on the electricity system. In this webinar, they had a closer look at the changing patterns of power generation, demand and electricity prices, comparing them to a number of previous years. Based on this comparison, they tried to demonstrate how these changes could affect supply reliability, not only in the coming days and weeks, but also in the future when the transition to renewable energy will be more advanced, reaching for a full renewable power system by 2050 in Europe.
