T&D Europe supports Electrification Alliance Declaration

Grid technology providers are part of the Electrification Alliance Declaration signatories. The Declaration calls on EU policymakers to accelerate the uptake of clean and renewable electricity as the most cost-effective and energy efficient strategy to deliver a climate neutral Europe.

In the context of the beginning of a new political leadership in the European institutions, the Declaration asks for concrete initiatives to support ambitious climate actions.The European Green Deal will be instrumental for steering our economy and society in the right direction, it should therefore firmly put clean and smart electrification at its core.

Electricity networks are the backbone of the clean enegry transition. Parts of its ten priorities, the Declaration highlights the need to "Ensure that investments in network infrastructure, especially smart electricity grids, support the transition towards a net-zero carbon economy." By accomodating high shares of clean energy into the networks and enabling flexibility for consumers, smart grids solutions support the decarbonisation of the economy.

"T&D Europe is proud to support the Electrification Alliance Declaration" said Diederik Peereboom, Secretary General of T&D Europe. "It is an extremely positive message towards the decision-makers and the citizens. We are ready to contribute to the European Green Deal alongside the Alliance members for identifying the best solutions for supporting clean electrification."
