This infographic shows European countries' contributions to the replenishment of the Green Climate Fund (GCF). 

Some European countries have understood that in order to help the poorest countries scale up their climate action and cope with the climate crisis, they need to at least double their previous contributions to the GCF. 

However, the finance that many other European countries are putting on the table is nowhere near what is needed. They must top their pledges up. And more countries still need to come forward. This GCF replenishment phase will last until December 2023 but countries should come forward with more ambitious contributions as soon as possible in light of developing countries' need to scale up their climate plans in 2020.

  • Submission - CAN EUROPE’S COMMENTS ON ENTSOS’ INTERLINKED MODEL

    CAN Europe is asking both policymakers and grid operators to make the TYNDP fully compatible with the Paris Agreement. European energy infrastructure urgently needs to be prepared for a 100% renewable energy system, making use of all flexibility options in a swift and cost-effective way.
  • Coal is out. Are the Western Balkans in?

    Are EU member-states in Southeast Europe ready for timely and just transition beyond coal? For the Western Balkans, membership hopefuls, the question is how much longer can public subsidies and Chinese loans keep coal zombie alive at growing cost to health, livelihoods, and the environment?
  • Submission - Feedback on ENTSOS' Proposals for TYNDP 2022 Storylines

    Future energy infrastructure planning in Europe needs to be fully aligned with the Paris Agreement. CAN Europe recommends to increase variation of TYNDP 2022 storylines by assessing higher ambition of greenhouse gas emission reductions. In order to reach the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement, a trajectory towards net-zero emissions in 2040 should be assessed. Instead of primarily opposing “decentralised” and “global” solutions in the TYNDP 2022 storylines, at least one scenario should analyse how to prepare European energy infrastructure for a 100% renewable energy system in the most efficient way, combining the best out of both “decentralised” and “global” futures.
