Our approach and vision
Given the strong interconnection of energy systems across Europe, the decarbonization scenario integrates 15 European countries (Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland, United Kingdom. The scenario takes into account all decarbonization levers with sufficiently mature technologies.
Our scenario is underpinned by respect for 3 criteria: alignment with the European Climate ambition, optimizing costs for the wider community, and guaranteeing the safety of the energy system. By weighing up every possible solution against these three criteria the new pathway we are forging capitalizes on the most relevant existing decarbonization levers, while leaving room for emergent technologies. It is an approach that is both pragmatic and systemic.
