As the current renewable energy is generally expensive compared with fossil energy, it is reasonable to be concerned that various countries may provide traditional energy at competitive prices to protect their domestic industries. In such context, the final winners are those who can move to the use of the renewable energy in a stable way while guaranteeing powerful GDP growth rate.
At present, the global energy industry is in rapid transformation and development phase, which will lead to significant changes in the entire energy value chain from energy production to the end users. New participants and competition rules pose many challenges for the global energy landscape in the future. How to perfectly integrate renewables into smart grid has become a key problem for various parties to solve. Recently, Energy Review made an exclusive interview with Bjorn Tore Markussen, the newly appointed Chief Operating Officer of DNV KEMA Asia Pacific, who thought that it is necessary to work out a smart grid solution suitable for the renewable energy development and its successful transport.
