Energy Transition

Climate action becoming more pressing, Europe is setting ambitious targets for the decarbonization of all sectors of the economy, particularly energy, transport and construction.

Electrical contractors are central to these objectives as they are needed to properly design, install, operate and maintain many of the low-carbon solutions necessary to mitigate the environmental impact of these sectors.
Without them and their skills, Europe will not be able to move towards a carbon-neutral economy.
And with their unique position as trusted customer advisors, they will empower citizens and businesses to contribute to the energy transition.
Climate change and its consequences are well-known at this point, but so are the remedies. Several clean and efficient electrical technologies are cheaply and readily available today and innovation is flourishing in the power sector.
The scaling of electricity uses in the European society and economy is perfectly feasible, and it is not only desirable to meet our environmental objectives, but also to provide consumers with increasing levels of comfort.

EuropeOn is the voice of electrical contractors in Brussels, where the EU formulates the policies that will shepherd us through the energy transition. And we are delighted to speak for the sector that makes these policies happen on the ground, enabling end-users to take part in this transition. From the latter’s perspective, the implementation of said policies hinges on electrical contractors.
Electrical contractors employ local electricians who enjoy a closer relationship with consumers than larger multinational companies. They do visits directly in touch with end-users and their electrical systems, to understand customer needs and offer advice about the most adequate low-carbon solutions for their building. In this way, electrical contractors represent the vanguard of the energy transition, spearheading decarbonisation downstream in the energy value chain.

EuropeOn activities focus on following four energy transition areas:

Renewables

Renewables

Decentralised production of renewable electricity will underpin end-users’ move towards a cleaner and sustainable approach to energy. In the future, most roofs will be equipped with solar panels, enabling occupants to consume their own energy, relieving the local grid, and even feeding clean power back into it for their neighbours to consume.

Storage

Storage

Renewable energy plays a key role in the decarbonization of the electricity sector. Unfortunately, renewable power generation is quite variable, such as solar power which depends on sunshine. This is why storage is such an important component of the energy transition. This rapidly emerging technology will find its way into our buildings, accompanying the rise of renewables and probably benefitting from the availability of used car batteries entering the circular economy.

E-Mobility

E-Mobility

Transport accounts for roughly 30% of emissions in the EU. Problematically, it has been recognized as one of the most difficult areas to decarbonize. However, as virtually all car manufacturers announce plans for the replacement of combustion engine vehicles with electric cars and as charging solutions continue to develop, electromobility is poised to boom in the next years.

Energy Management

Energy Management

Smart control and automation systems can yield significant amounts of savings both for individual consumers or “prosumers” and for the energy system as a whole. Management systems will flourish around us both at grid level and in buildings, from industries, to offices and homes.
