NZEB + EV: The decarb combo

Are you aware of these stats?

  1. Buildings account for 40 % of energy consumption and 36 % of energy emissions (EU data)
  2. Road transport accounts for 25 % of energy consumption and 20 % of energy emissions (EU data and EU stats)

Then, what happens when we combine NZEB buildings (net Zero Energy Buildings) with local renewable generation and EVs (Electric Vehicles) charging in these NZEB?

It’s obvious… -> We can decarbonize 65 % of the energy system!* Sigue leyendo

Interconnections and the road to 100% renewable

Last week, ADMIE signed the contracts for the 1st phase of the Cyclades interconnection Project, consisting in 150 kV AC three-phase sea cable from the mainland to Syros island, and from there to Mykonos, Paros and Tinos (see the picture below).

The business case for the interconnection project is impressive. We are talking about an investment of roughly 232 M€ that will save approximately 100 M€ per year, and will avoid the emissions from fuel fired power plants in the islands, increasing the reliability of the grid and the power quality.

Why are interconnections important for the sustainability of the grids?
