To reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, an energy mix where green gas would be preponderant would cost 36 % more than a scenario where both energy efficiency and intelligent electrification were to be promoted. Moreover, the report “Towards fossil-free energy in 2050” published by the European Climate Foundation underlines that reaching carbon neutrality could also means for the EU:
- 1,8 million jobs;
- €23 billion of energy expenditure economy;
- 2,1 % GDP growth.
