– Best practices and lessons learned from the Netherlands
The live webinar took place in cooperation with Russian Association of Wind Power Industry.
The Russian Oil & Gas sector is starting to look at investments for Renewable Energy for several reasons. On the one side to meet the targets of the UN Gloabal Climate Directive and on the other side to electrify remote production locations. To electrify these remote areas, is wind on land a good solution that contribute to both goals. However, the renewable energy sector and the oil & gas sector in Russia are relatively new to each other. In other parts of the world the necessity for both sectors to cooperate (system integration) is even stronger and therefore there are some interesting lessons learned. Prof. Jepma from the New Energy Coalition (the Netherlands) has led several projects on the topics of offshore energy, power-to-gas and system integration and will share his lessons learned accompanied with case examples and best practices with you. Because a cooperation between the Oil & Gas sector and the Renewable Energy sector can create synergies for both sectors.
- Energy supply of industrial locations with the use of RES;
- The relevance of system integration and power-to-gas;
- Best practices from the Netherlands;
- Economic efficiency of wind energy/solar energy projects for your own consumption;
- Potential for renewable energy development for the needs of oil and gas sector to meet the targets of UN Global Climate Directive.
