The Spanish government has submitted its 2030 National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP), raising the country’s ambitions on greenhouse gas emission reduction to 23% compared to 1990 level. Spain is a powerhouse for renewable energy deployment with 25,7 gigawatts (GW) of total installed wind capacity. In 2019 Spain was Europe’s leading market for onshore wind.
Europe is committed to achieving climate neutrality by 2050. This unprecedented challenge will require the massive deployment of solar installations, leveraging significant amounts of investments over the coming decades. Ahead of the launch of SolarPower Europe’s Finance workstream, this webinar will identify new business models creating opportunities for solar developers in a post subsidy era and explore the contribution of European Investment Bank programs to bridge the investment gap.
This webinar presents the results of the groundbreaking study from SolarPower Europe and LUT University on a 100% renewable transition pathway to achieve climate-neutrality before 2050. It will discuss how the European Union can lead the fight against climate change and harvest the benefits of a 100% renewable energy system with solar at its core, delivering a prosperous, secure, and climate-neutral European economy.
The European Commission has launched its 2020 call for project proposals under the LIFE programme. We have taken measures to make it easier for you to apply in times of coronavirus restrictions including extended deadlines. This year, we have earmarked more than €450 million for nature conservation, environmental protection and climate action projects.
As the Commission’s fitness check for the Guidelines is underway and stakeholders are in critical need for a precise understanding of the process, scope and consequences of the review, this event will present the findings of a new CERRE research project on “State Aid Guidelines for Environmental Protection and Energy (EEAG): review process, possible changes and opportunities”.
This study examines the EEAG review process and scope, focusing on possible areas of change. It considers the evolution of existing technologies and the proliferation of new actors shaping the landscape of a decentralised and complex energy system. It also studies the impact of the recently adopted Clean Energy Package and the intended ‘flexibility’ projected in the EU Green Deal.
This webinar is the second online conference on Sustainability and Finance organized and supported by oikos International and the Harvard Extension School’s Student Environmental Club. It brings together researchers, students, activists, and professionals to discuss recent developments in finance and sustainability.
The Covid-19 pandemic led to the postponement of the UN’s COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow until 2021. The S&D Group understands the reasons behind this choice, as now all governments’ efforts must be focused on saving people’s lives. No one should, however, use this postponement to put into question the priority of the European Green Deal and the legislative proposal on the EU Climate Law.
A legal opinion of the European Parliament’s legal service requested by ECR MEPs Alexandr Vondra and Anna Zalewska has found the Commission’s attempted use of “delegated acts” to reach emission targets under the Green Deal to be incompatible with Article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
Third webinar by EuroACE on the building renovation wave.
Join Rud Pedersen for the latest of online “Climate Talks’’ on Energy Efficiency and the Renovation Wave. The special guest will be Barry Lynham, Managing Director at Knauf Energy Solutions, delivering large-scale, data-driven efficiency solutions in building renovation. Barry will be joined by Peter Vis, Senior Advisor at Rud Pedersen and former head of cabinet to Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard. Barry and Peter will exchange views on the policies needed to deliver mass scale renovation as part of the European Green Deal. The discussion will be moderated by Simon Taylor, Rud Pedersen’s Senior Advisor.
Leading industry players in the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure sector have come together to form a new alliance to support the roll-out of consumer-centric EV policies in Europe.
