Stefan Gadola, EnergoBit: “We need to focus more on small consumers, both industrial and households”
“The notion of energy security frightens me. Energy security means the security of a state. The responsibility is extremely high in this area. We need to think about why there are no investments in energy production. It was a period with investments in renewables 10-12 years ago, but unfortunately the rules of the game for investors have changed. Investments in energy are high, and legislation must ensure investor confidence. Otherwise, it is difficult to invest in energy,” Stefan Gadola, General Manager, EnergoBit said during the Energy CEO Forum 2021 organized by The Diplomat-Bucharest.
“We need to focus more on small consumers, both industrial and households. Today there are opportunities to produce energy locally. Without good technical thinking, we will not cope.
A good energy storage solution is high-performance batteries, so that the one who has a production system can store energy. Storage is the solution for decentralization. Through storage I think things will develop. A problem will be in the case of electric cars, which will require fast charging solutions.
Decarbonization means energy efficiency, from the smallest consumer to the largest consumer.”
