Decarbonizing the Global Energy Trade

Tim Grejtak, Analyst
October 6, 2020

Presenter: Tim Grejtak, Analyst at Lux Research

As renewable energy generation grows to meet decarbonization goals, so do concerns about overgeneration and curtailment. Hydrogen is increasingly seen as means to reduce curtailment by shuttling energy that would otherwise be wasted on the grid to other sectors like industry and transportation – a practice called sector coupling. While sector coupling may help curtailment, it doesn’t address the myriad regions that lack the land area or resource potential like Japan or the Netherlands to overbuild solar and wind generation. These regions instead must find a means to import renewable energy cheaply to realize decarbonization goals. In this webinar, we will highlight the challenges of sector coupling and provide a framework to identify the best energy vectors to import and export renewable energy.
