Researcher Live - Understanding the energy transition: a critical review of the sector coupling concept

SEP 21
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CET

Why should we be interested in sector coupling and what problems do we face in linking the sectors from the energy economics’ viewpoint?

Energy System Integration, including the concept of sector coupling, is the path towards more effective, affordable and deep decarbonization of the energy system. Sector coupling shows great promise in increasing the flexibility of the energy system by introducing enabling technologies, such as Power-to-Gas or electric mobility, to the energy system.

In this online discussion, doctoral researcher Tuomas Vanhanen (Tampere University, Finland) seeks to understand the concept of sector coupling and why it is such an important topic for energy transition. He meets with the main author of The sector coupling concept: A critical review, researcher Jasmine Ramsebner (Technical University of Vienna, Austria). The main focus of the discussion is why should we be interested in sector coupling, how should we define this fairly new concept and what fundamental problems do we face in linking different sectors together?
