A Systemic Approach to the Energy Transition in Europe

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Jul 26, 2021 | Science Advice for Policy by European Academies

How can the European Commission contribute to the preparation for - and acceleration and facilitation of - the necessary energy transition in Europe, given present knowledge of possible transition pathways? This Evidence Review Report by the Science Advice for Policy by European Academies suggests that there are several possible pathways towards a carbon-neutral future. Achieving it by 2050 is possible but requires urgent action not only in the technological field. To make the energy transition a reality, a major systemic problem needs to be resolved by coordinating countless individual voluntary decisions on investment, consumption, and behaviour across Europe. The report concludes with evidence-based policy options that can help Europe implement the Green Deal and reach the Paris Agreement targets.
