Key extract from the linked statement (my emphasis)
Statement by Commissioner Kadri Simson following the High-Level Videoconference of Energy Ministers
I am working on the energy system integration strategy. It will focus on how to increase the role of renewable electricity via electrification, and how to use green gases for hard-to-decarbonise sectors. Later this year I will also present a new strategic approach to offshore renewable energy, to make sure we use all the potential of that strategic sector.
We also need to upgrade our energy infrastructure. Funding from a strong Connecting Europe Facility and possibly from the new Recovery Fund could support this and trigger private investment. The ongoing work for the revision of the TEN-E regulation will help project promoters to develop the infrastructure of the future.
Finally, we could focus on innovative clean technologies like batteries and electrolysers for hydrogen production. Europe will be an even stronger leader in renewables if green hydrogen becomes competitive and deployable in the next decade.
