Electrification and Renewables

Substitution of fossil fuels with renewables and electrification of end uses will be pivotal in all the energy transition scenarios.

From fossil fuels to renewables and electrification

All net zero scenarios and the main long-term strategies of the European member States agree on the need to leverage a plurality of technologies to achieve the target of limiting global warming to below 1,5°C compared to preindustrial levels.

The only way to efficiently achieve full decarbonization is to leverage all possible technological levers: progressive substitution of fossil fuels with renewables combined with electrification of end uses and energy efficiency will play a crucial role in the energy transition, coupled with other mitigation measures.
