Electrification in the energy transition: towards net-zero emissions by 2050

The European Green Deal envisions a carbon neutral Europe by 2050. Electrification is a powerful tool that can help catapult Europe’s energy transition forward. Accelerated changes are needed in the power, buildings and transport sectors, but they will fail to emerge without robust policies closely aligned with the decarbonisation goal.

In this webinar, Wouter Nijs of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission and David Farnsworth of RAP delve into the role that electrification plays in different scenarios for meeting Europe’s climate goals.
