A newly published overview of the European electricity sector suggests that renewables development remains stalled on the continent. Despite some regional differences, EU policy generally favors gas over renewable resources to replace coal. And recent comments by Kadri Simson, the newly sworn-in EU energy commissioner, offer little hope for change.
UK based energy data service provider and consultancy EnAppSys released its quarterly review of the European energy market. While renewables have covered a large chunk of the continent’s demand, that trend will likely change in the second half of the year, as production from renewables falls. Meanwhile, coal generation is being pushed out of the U.K. market, although not fully to the benefit of renewables as gas-fired power plants are picking up momentum.
