(Wednesday) 10:30 - 12:00 CEST



Event Details

Delivering climate neutrality requires a transversal approach to energy system integration, expanding the contribution of renewables beyond power. It will also require higher ambitions to deploy renewables and solar: according to SolarPower Europe, increasing the EU’s 2030 target to at least 45% share of renewables in final energy demand will be required to be on track for achieving climate-neutrality, and meeting the EU new ambitions on renewable hydrogen. This webinar will explore in particular:

  • How renewables can contribute to deliver higher ambitions by 2030 and what is needed to remove bottlenecks for deploying more solar on the ground, with a focus on electrification policies, permitting, grid investments and storage
  • The role of additionality and certification systems in supporting additional investments in renewables projects, driving the achievement of Europe’s 2030 renewable target and making the EU Hydrogen Strategy a true success story.
