The Quest to Decarbonize Europe2020 Strategies towards 2050

4 December 2020

in Japanese

Renewable Energy Institute releases today "The Quest to Decarbonize Europe: 2020 Strategies towards 2050." 

Europe and its five largest economies: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom are now all aiming for carbon neutrality by 2050. A common, ambitious and necessary objective. 

This report is intended to provide up-to-date and comprehensive information on Europe’s major transition towards carbon neutrality focusing on both the European Union and the five largest economies of the continent. Long-term visions, intermediate goals, most recent progress, and new strategies to advance in this direction are presented for all energy sectors: electricity, heating & cooling, and transport. The substantial contributions of renewable energy and energy efficiency to shape an economic and environmentally sustainable future are highlighted, as well as those of three technological enablers: offshore wind, road electrification, and hydrogen.  

By sharing these insights from Europe’s most forward-thinking examples Renewable Energy Institute works towards inspiring decision makers in Japan which has just also committed to carbon neutrality by mid-century.
