“The cable industry is a key player in enabling Europe’s carbon neutrality by 2050. 80% of subsea cables are already used to integrate renewable energy sources. Europe’s cable industry has both the technology and the capacity to deliver more.
However, what we are missing is:
– Europe’s firm commitment to meet the targets for interconnection as well as a clear and coordinated plan to achieve the renewables targets for 2030;
– a coordinated approach to boost offshore wind deployment and integration all across the continent; and
– sandboxes to test and further develop new technologies.”
This is the message Raul Gil, chairman of the Europacable Energy Infrastructure Team conveyed at the empower Conference held in Brussels on 18 February 2020
