CAN Europe, Greenpeace, and WWF engaged Öko Institut and the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) to explore in depth the different options for the EU Member States to contribute to a 30 percent carbon target. The institutes were also asked to assess different EU financing mechanisms to leverage additional investments in the EU Member States, and help to equally share the costs and benefits of more climate ambition. The findings of the institutes and the policy recommendations of CAN Europe, Greenpeace and WWF are summarised in this report.

In this report CAN Europe elaborates on the numerous benefits that moving to a -30% 2020 EU greenhouse gas target will have on Member States’ budgets.

The European Union likes to present its climate policies as models of aggressive action. However, at the centre there is a gaping hole: the -20% below 1990 by 2020 emissions cut agreed in 2008 will require virtually no effort in Europe to achieve. Making a move to a deeper target conditional upon aggressive action in other countries, as the policy is now, is therefore misplaced. It is Europe that needs to move, as its reductions are less aggressive than those in other countries, and deeper cuts would in fact yield a financial benefit.

  • 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.
