It is trite to say that more needs to be done to save our environment. And the shift from fossil fuel to renewable energy sources is an essential move. This shift implies changes in the electricity sector, and also in the two main greenhouse gas producers - transport and heating. These changes alone will not work, unless the electricity powering them is produced from clean energy sources. Fine-tuning the interplay, between the variable and uncertain production and the flexibility via advanced control of demand, is the key in making a transition to a low-carbon society.
