1 EU ENERGY POLICYContext and Challenges Objectives, 2020 Targets, RM 2050, GP 2030, Growth and Jobs…MARC DEFFRENNES DG ENERGY
2 EU energy challenges 1. Sustainability (= Env Protection: GHG, +…) 2. Security of energy supply (ia stability and reliability of electricity supply…)3. Competitiveness (incl "affordability for final consumer") In which order ???To tackle these challenges, EU needs:an ambitious set of energy efficiency measuresa proper mix of a wide range of low carbon energy sources (+ large investments!!!)
3 Energy policy for Europe Integrated energy and climate policy Objective: 80 to 95 % GHG reduction in 2050Year 2020 targets (2007): 3x20% AND SET Plan – needs 80 Billion Euros over 10 y2nd Strategic Energy Review (2008) CO2 free electricity in 2050Energy Strategy 2020 (2010): 5 priorities (EE, Market Operation and Infrastructures, Innovation SET Plan, Safety and Security, International Cooperation)Year 2020 objectives:increase energy efficiency by 20%reduce CO2 emissions by 20%increase share of renewable sources to 20%2nd Strategic Energy Review:low carbon electricity share: 2/3 by 2020low carbon electricity share: close to 100% by 2050Energy Strategy 2020:competitive, sustainable & secure energymeans to achieve 2020 objectives
4 Energy Strategy 2020 and MFF(ia!): - PM: EERP and NER300: BEuros for CCS and Wind BEuros for 43 RES Projects - Critical Infrastructures – ia energy networks EC proposed 10 Beuros – reduced in Council proposal - SET Plan: H2020 EC proposed 6.5 BEuros for Energy + Euratom Regional/Structural Funds Energy and Innovation are priorities NEEDS ARE MUCH BIGGER - global endeavour: need MS and Industry on board… INVESTMENTS !!! Will the "Market" deliver ???Improving safety and security:1. EU legal framework further enhanced through:review of the Nuclear Safety Directiveimplementation of the Nuclear Waste Directiveredefinition of the basic safety standardsEuropean approach on nuclear liability regimes2. Harmonisation of plant design and certification
5 Energy Roadmap 2050Adopted by the Commission in December 2011; Presidency conclusions in June 2012An exploration of possible futures for the EU energy system: 7 scenariosDiverse Long-term Perspectives and MixesDiscussion with Member States and stakeholdersA basis for policy action = regulatory framework and financing/investment policy
6 Context: Low-Carbon Economy Roadmap (Mar 2011) Basis of scenarios 80% domestic GHG reduction in 2050Efficient pathway:-25% in 2020-40% in 2030-60% in 20406
7 Energy Roadmap 2050 - scenarios 1 Business as usual (Common Reference Scenario)1bis Current Policy Initiatives scenario2 High Energy Efficiency3 Diversified supply technologies4 High Renewables5 Delayed CCS6 Low NuclearSeveral meaningful scenarios can be proposed for a complex analysis of teh decarbonisation of the energy system. Together with stakeholders, the Ec has identified 4 main decarbonisation routes EE reducing energy demand and RES, nuclear and CCS reducing the carbon content of energy consumption. 5 scenarios analysed are different combinations of the 4 decarbonisation routes. The main driver are carbon prices for ETS and non-ETS sectors complemented in some scenarios by additional targeted support measures to EE and RES. The last two scenarios present cases where due to technological difficulties or public acceptance issues some technologies are delayed or abandoned.
8 EU-27 results Reference scenario: GDP, energy consumption and CO2 emissions 40 years back and ahead (1990 = 100)Doubling of GDP in ; energy consumption down slightly from its peak inCO2 emissions decline faster than energy consumption; are driven by the ETS sectors which decreases emissions by almost 50% in compared to around 20% for non-ETS sectorResults in 40% decrease in CO2 emissions below 1990 level in 2050 and 39% decrease in GHG emissions
9 Results Current Policy initiatives scenario: Primary energy demand, savings from REF and carbon intensityMtoeCarbon intensitySavings from REF due to the implementation of the EEP impact on final energy demand mainly in residential and tertiaryFossil fuels reduce their importance in the fuel mix with solids undergoing the biggest decline (-8% in )The share of nuclear is lower in comparison to the Ref scenario reflecting post –Fukushima (no nuclear in Italy, nuclear phase-out in germany, in case of nuclear lifetime extension increase in generation costs of up to 20% reflecting higher safety requirements
10 Results Gross energy consumption: range in current trends and decarbonisation scenarios (in Mtoe) REF/CPI: effects of additional policies and updated assumptionsDecarbonisation cases: effects from different policy focus / technology availability
11 Results Share of electricity in final energy demand under current trends and with decarbonisation (in %)Range regarding decarbonisation scenarios FROM 3100 to 4800 TWh PARange for current trends scenarios:Electricity generation in TWh is lower in High EE scenario than in CPI in all others scenarios it is higher reflecting more electrification of heating and transport.
12 Results Import dependency under current trends and decarbonisation in (%) While the difference in 2030 is rather small; it increases to pp in 2050 (as compared to CPI).
13 Results Ratio of energy system costs to GDP under current trends and decarbonisation (average over )Despite the fact the differences as % of GDP looks very small, they are important- 65 bn EUR between High RES and Delayed CCS corresponding to the GDP of Slovakia for 2010.Total costs included- capital costs for energy installations, energy suing equipment, appliances, vehicles-fuels and electricity costs-direct efficiency investment costs (insulation, control systems, energy management)While capital and efficiency cosst are higher in decarbonisation, fuel costs are significantly llower due to lower consumption and assumed lower import prices.* EU GDP = 15 Trillion Euros per year – 0.5% is 75 Billion Euros !!! per year
15 Decarbonisation of the energy system: Some conclusions Decarbonisation under global climate action is feasible; several pathways are possible and costs do not differ substantially from current trendsReduction of energy consumption through energy efficiency improvementsAll decarbonisation options can contribute: EE, RES, nuclear, CCSBut Renewables increases a lot in all casesElectricity will play a greater role in energy supplies (20% of final energy demand today, almost 40% by 2050) also in areas such as transport and heating = 4800 TWh per year in 2050Power generation almost carbon free by 2050Electricity prices increase up to 2030 and slightly decline afterwards (besides the High RES scenario where electricity is 25% more expensive)Transition from high fuel / operational expenditure to high capital expenditureReduced import dependency and external fuel billMassive investments in generation capacity and grids to ensure stable and reliable energy supply
16 Energy Roadmap 2050 – scenarios (2/2) Renewables move centre stage – but all fuels can contribute in the long-run Decarbonisation scenarios - fuel ranges (primary energy consumption in %)2030205075%0%25%50%75%RESGasNuclearOilSolid fuels200550%RES dominates energy mix in long-run shows already significant increases in RES. If it were measured in final demand – as in RES directive – this would go up to around 30%. In electricity generation, RES share by 2030 would be between 51 and 60%. In 2050, RES dominates the energy mix by far. High RES scenario has 65 percentage points more RES in final demand than today reaching 75%.Gas will be critical for the transformation of the energy system. Substitution of coal (and oil) with gas in the short to medium term could help to reduce emissions with existing technologies until at least 2030 or Although gas demand in the residential sector, for example, might drop by a quarter until 2030 due to several energy efficiency measures in the housing sector, it will stay high in the power sector over a longer period. In the Diversified Supply Technologies scenario for example, gas-fired power generation accounts for over 800 TWh in 2050, significantly higher than current levels.Nuclear energy will be needed to provide a significant contribution in the energy transformation process in those Member States where it is pursued. It remains a key source of low carbon electricity generation.Oil is likely to remain in the energy mix even in 2050 and will mainly fuel parts of long distance passenger and freight transport.Coal in the EU adds to a diversified energy portfolio and contributes to security of supply. With the development of CCS, coal could continue to play an important role in a sustainable and secure supply in the future.25%0%RESGasNuclearOilSolid fuels16
