Making Europe climate neutral by 2050 requires a decarbonized energy model entailing the decarbonization of final energy uses through cost efficient solutions, as well as the achievement of electricity generation mainly through renewable energies.
Consensus has been drawn that the EU recovery from the COVID-19 crisis should be based on digitalization and the green transitions, as this allows to strengthen the EU social model, reinforce the EU economy and achieve the climate objectives.
Understanding the economical, technical, and social aspects of future energy trends is key to enabling the right investments at EU and national level, as well as to harnessing the wide-ranging opportunities of the energy transition.
Danish Energy and Iberdrola will present the Danish and Spanish national cases to show how different technologies and business solutions can build effective energy decarbonization roadmaps depending on country specific starting conditions and circumstances.

We look forward to a lively discussion!
