Road to a rapid transition to sustainable energy security in Europe

It is time to embrace sustainability as a business imperative and to capture the momentum now, for the future.

Road to a rapid transition to sustainable energy security in Europe

This report is based on the landmark research from the Joint Research Center of the European Commission, the “Integrated Database of the European Energy Sector”, which for the first time mapped actual energy uses for each country within the European Union, across 17 sectors of activity, with data granularity at the level of each process step (or end-use) of each of these sectors.

Our approach here has been to systematically review these process steps (or end-uses) and qualify the extent to which they could be electrified, effectively removing the demand for fossil fuels as a result. We have focused only on those process steps where technology was already widely available and for which we evaluated the switch to be relatively easy (or attractive). In other words, we estimated the impact of rapid electrification of “easy to abate” activities.

The why, what, and how of corporate biodiversity action

The approach towards corporate biodiversity action shows similarities with that of climate action at several points along the way.

Towards net-zero buildings: Exploring the IntenCity case

IntenCity has a cumulated carbon footprint 5 times less than an average European building on a 60-year life cycle.

Path to developed and decarbonized India

The choices India makes today will profoundly influence some of the world’s most pressing challenges like climate change. The good news is that these choices are yet to be made.

Towards net-zero buildings: A quantitative study

Progress on energy and sustainability is at an all-time high. How will that momentum fare in a new decade and under radical new circumstances? In this study, we propose a new and innovative approach to the decarbonization of the building sector.
