Choosing to rely exclusively on renewable energy sources (RES) and eliminating hydrocarbons can lead to significant difficulties for an energy system. Challenges may arise when energy storage is insufficient to guarantee a stable power supply. The lack of suitable technologies to apply RES in certain sectors, such as maritime and aviation, can also create problems. These challenges were explicitly demonstrated in the United Kingdom and European Union energy markets in September and October 2021.
