Paris Agreement Compatible Scenarios for Energy Infrastructure

 

OUR GOAL

The PAC project – “Paris Agreement Compatible Scenarios for Energy Infrastructure”– has been established to develop a future energy scenario for Europe which is compatible with the Paris Agreement. The scenario, under development by civil society organisations, shall guide European energy infrastructure planning and help to ensure that we are planning and building the infrastructure necessary for a future low carbon, renewables-based energy system.

The PAC scenario will be guided by three goals:

  • A 65% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030
  • Net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040
  • 100% renewables in Europe by 2040 in all sectors
