The Electrification Alliance published a Declaration on Electrification which also has the support of a large number of associations, companies and NGOs. The Declaration states that as electricity in Europe decarbonises, it will reveal its true value as it becomes the key vector for achieving a decarbonised, energy efficient and digital European economy.
Electrification is the process of switching away from fossil fuels toward the use of clean and renewable electricity as the main source of energy for all our applications in society. Many sectors, such as transport, industry, buildings and heating & cooling can undergo the process of electrification. It is increasingly powered by renewable energy sources like wind and solar and supported by demand-side flexibility. Moreover, smart electricity grids make the system highly sustainable, dependable and efficient.
