HSE has joined the Declaration on Electrification which highlights the true value of electricity. Because electricity in Europe is becoming cleaner, it represents one of the key designs of the energy efficient and decarbonised European economy. Therefore, Avere, EURELECTRIC, the European Copper Institute, European Heat Pump Association, SolarPower Europe and WindEurope have joined forces and launched an Electrification Alliance, and invited a wide range of stakeholders to sign the Declaration.
The Signatories of the Declaration support decarbonisation and increased investment in clean technologies, such as OVE, power reservoirs, smart networks. We promote connections between the electricity sector and the cooling, heating and transport sectors.
The Signatories also call for reforms as part of the current remodelling of climate, energy and transport legislation in order to speed up the electrification process in the coming years. Electrification will enable the use of efficient technologies and with that contribute to the designing of a sustainable European society, increased competitiveness, economic growth and job creation.
Nonetheless, the Signatories of the Declaration call for policy-makers to remove the barriers to electrification, to design the needed vehicle charging infrastructure and to use smart and efficient heating and cooling technologies.
