Urgent action is required today in order to move towards a
“Net Zero by 2050” compliant pathway for EuropeEUA carbon prices of as much as 420-440 €/tonne
may be required by 2050 in order to meet the Net Zero target
Summary Points:In our Q1 2021 Reference Case, renewable power accounts for 77% of European electricity supply by 2050, almost double compared to current levelsWhilst this represents substantial progress, it would not be enough to meet the target of Net Zero emissions in the European energy system by 2050Assuming that the EUA carbon market is used as the key investment signal to drive decarbonisation of the European economy, EUA carbon prices of as much as 420-440 €/tonne may be required by 2050 to meet the Net Zero targetOur Net Zero scenario also sees an additional 350 GW of renewable energy capacity being developed by 2050 across Europe compared to our Reference Case which would have significant implications for power price dynamics, asset economics and the level of investment and wider system changes requiredGiven the scale of the investment challenge ahead, European countries must ensure that they have the appropriate policy and regulatory frameworks in place that will ensure they can compete to attract capital from long-term investors financing the energy transition.
