Building on the resolutions of the Paris Climate Agreement, the participating nations have set themselves the goal of achieving a carbon-neutral energy policy by the year 2050. With its Green Deal, the European Union has published a strategy that is tailored to the needs of the EU and the challenges it is facing.
Basing their work on the fundamental structures of programme management, a team of energy experts from umlaut has set out the perspectives of an implementation programme for achieving a carbon-neutral EU by the year 2050. This white paper provides a set of methodological and conceptual guidelines for implementation. It focuses on content, costs, stakeholders, communication and risks, and it is hoped that it will help to bring about the European energy transition efficiently, transparently and quickly.
