    New study: A new grid development plan for the future

    German TSO TenneT faces – like many other European TSOs – two main challenges when trying to plan a new grid development plan for the future. First of all, the future energy mix will increasingly be based on volatile renewable sources located often far away from the consumer and second of all, there is high uncertainty regarding the key drivers of grid investments.

    This is one of the key conclusions in our new study on  the current German transmission grid development plan, in which we analyse weaknesses and make recommendations for reform.

    New study: EU exports to Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand

    EU goods exports to Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand amounted to EUR 39.5 billion in 2017 and supported at least 354,000 jobs in the EU. A reduction in exports by EUR 2 billion would place at least 18,000 jobs at risk in key sectors across the EU.

    That is one of the key conclusions in our new study on the current trade relations between the EU and Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

    New study: EU imports of palm oil from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand

    Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand are major sources of EU palm oil imports. In 2017, close to three quarters of EU imports of palm oil came from these three Asian countries. In addition, 46% EU palm oil imports are used for biodiesel amounting to EUR 2 billion per year based on 2017 data.

    The European Parliament’s proposal to exclude biofuels produced from palm oil from counting towards the EU Renewable Energy Targets may thus reduce EU imports of palm oil by up to EUR 2 billion from the three Asian countries.

    That is one of the main conclusions from our recent study on the impacts of EU palm oil imports from Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

    New study: Low productivity growth in the service sector in Region Zealand

    If the productivity in the service sectors in Region Zealand had increased at the same pace as the remaining regions, Region Zealand’s GDP had been 6% higher today.

    Productivity in the service sectors in Region Zealand is almost unchanged in the past 20 years. In this period, the productivity in the manufacturing and primary industries increased around 2% annually.

    Since the mid-00’s, the productivity in the service sectors in Region Sjælland fell behind the other Danish Regions’ service sectors and the productivity has not caught up. This is partly due to the fact that the most productive service sectors in Region Zealand are also the most constrained, and partly due to the relative increase in employment in low-productivity service sectors in Region Zealand.
