“We’re Outlining Pathways for Meeting the Federal Government’s Climate-Gas Reduction Targets”

Jülich, 20 July 2020 – Germany is aiming to achieve broad greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050. In order to reach this goal, we have to complete transform our energy system in all areas, whether that be the energy sector, construction, industry, or transport. It is truly the project of the century. Researchers at Jülich have used a whole family of computer models to simulate how this can be achieved while keeping costs to a minimum. They published the summary of their study last autumn, but the full study is now available. Over 160 pages, 45 tables, and 83 graphics, it breaks down in detail how our new energy system should look in order to optimize costs. We sat down with the authors of the study, Dr. Martin Robinius and Prof. Dr. Detlef Stolten, to discuss it.
