We are excited to publish a new WEC study where we address the challenges
and opportunities associated with fulfilling North-West Europe’s clear ambition
to decarbonise its economy by 2050: how to make this real. On behalf of the
World Energy Council in the Netherlands, we are pleased to invite you to the
European WEC Conference on March 5, 2020 in The Hague, the Netherlands,
where we will present the main findings of the new report.
As part of the study, a comprehensive scenario analysis will set out the
changes in the expected energy mix. For Europe it is evidently the case
that the extremely ambitious combination of intensified energy efficiency,
decarbonisation of electrons and molecules will be needed to fuel our
industrialised society, while at the same time keeping energy affordable and
secure, and meet the Paris objectives. The infrastructure, economic and political
challenges are huge, much larger than the public debate often assumes. When
managed well, the opportunities are substantial as well. These topics will be
discussed during the conference.
The report launch will be an engaging interaction and provide a platform for
sharing ideas, presentation of research, and discussions on industry topics.
We look forward to seeing you in March.
