“Decarbonized and interconnected: the future energy markets,” the new issue of CESI Energy Journal, is now available online at this link.
This issue of Energy Journal is dedicated to the changes that are underway in electric energy markets and addresses several issues concerning the electrification of power consumption (even in alternative sectors) as a driver for the definitive affirmation of renewables in the fight against climate change.
By reading the different articles presented, you will find in-depth focuses, interviews with sector experts, and a large space dedicated to the four key trends – decarbonization, electrification, digitalization, and decentralization – as well as to the future of power networks. Indeed, the modernization of the latter is fundamental for the adoption of innovative solutions.
In this respect, in the Scenario section, we describe how the transition from fossil fuels will be a gradual and complex process that will profoundly alter global energy markets, with economic, political, and social implications that extend far beyond the energy sector. In order to deepen our analysis, Top Story addresses interconnected systems and the energy market, two areas that are increasingly regulated by the digital revolution.
Furthermore, in Industries & Countries, we analyze how rare-earth elements, the metals used to develop key products for the energy transition, are essential to cutting-edge developments in renewable energy (wind, solar, electric), consumer technology (smartphones and LCDs), industry (microchips, optic fiber) and even in the military (missiles, radar).
Moreover, the Future and Technology section focuses on how CESI is at the forefront of the modernization of power networks, a challenge posed by vast interconnections, and system digitalization, through innovative projects, master plans and simulation tools.
The Opinions section provides comments by Laura Cozzi (Chief Energy Modeller at IEA and Head of the Demand Outlook Division with responsibility of producing the annual World Energy Outlook), Anna Creti (Professor of Economics at the Paris Dauphine University, LeDA-CGEMP – Dauphine Economics Laboratory-Center for Geopolitics of Energy and Raw Materials) and Michael Pollitt (Professor of Business Economics at the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge).
Finally, in New Skills, Bruno Cova (Advisory Services & Studies Unit Director of CESI) introduces readers to the skills required to work on the energy market, an area that is increasingly interconnected and interdisciplinary.
