Energy balance 2050

Transformation Strategies 2050

At the United Nations Climate Summit in New York on September 23, 2019, the Federal Republic of Germany committed to achieving greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050. Specifically, Germany set the target of reducing the greenhouse gas emission levels from 1990 by 80 to 95% in 2050. The greenhouse gas reduction paths proposed for this purpose are flanked by a large number of further, in some cases very detailed, targets (e.g. the share of renewable energies in electricity generation) which the Federal Government considers necessary in order to achieve the reduction targets. This canon of targets has been successively developed and expanded over the past decades. The question of whether the proposed transformation paths are cost-optimal strategies is currently unanswered. More about this study: Transformation Strategies 2050 …

Considered technology paths

Infrastructure Analysis H2Mobility

Electric drivetrains are key elements of low carbon energy-efficient transport based on renewable energy sources. Furthermore, a transportation system with zero local emissions will substantially improve people’s quality of life, especially in urban areas currently struggling with air quality issues.
