Renewables at Heart of Reaching Zero Emissions in Industry and Transport

Only seven industry and transport sectors will account for 38% of all CO2 emissions globally in 2050 unless there are significant changes in current approaches. Concerted action beyond planned policies can turn the page within the remaining 40 years and achieve zero emissions in heavy industry and transport by around 2060, a key requirement to … Continue reading Renewables at Heart of Reaching Zero Emissions in Industry and Transport

Decarbonisation of transport through renewables is possible

Electric vehicles (EVs) hold the key to unleash synergies between clean transport and low-carbon electricity. Just as future transport must be increasingly electrified, future power systems must make maximum use of variable renewable energy sources. Smart charging for EVs minimises their load impact and unlocks the flexibility to use more solar and wind power. This … Continue reading Decarbonisation of transport through renewables is possible

Closing the loop between Energy and Transport

Electric vehicles can be a game-changer for renewable power like wind energy and solar power and offer ideal opportunities for the broader introduction of renewables to the transport sector. Electric vehicles (EVs) create new demand for electricity that can be supplied by renewables. In addition to benefits like reducing CO2 emissions and air pollution, electric mobility … Continue reading Closing the loop between Energy and Transport

WindEurope discusses decarbonisation of transport with Members of European Parliament

The decarbonisation of transport and its integration into the electricity system is a cornerstone of the energy transition. But we have to ensure the power that is driving electro-mobility is clean. Today 29% of the electricity consumed in Europe comes from renewables, by 2030 this share is due to reach 50%. This means the acceleration … Continue reading WindEurope discusses decarbonisation of transport with Members of European Parliament
