Electrification - Energy Resilience

Energy Resilience

Electricity is:

  • the ‘stickiest’ form of energy: it stays in the continent where it is produced.
  • multi-sourced. If one source suffers a shortage, we can produce electricity from another, including renewable sources.

As a result, it gives the greatest degree of energy resilience and the energy system is going to electrification.
