Commitment Made by Members of EURELECTRIC to Realize Carbon Neutrality by 2050

Member countries of EURELECTRIC made a joint commitment on 6th, December, 2017 that the zero carbon emission of electric generation should be materialized by 2050, which was strongly supported by Christian ruby, the General Secretary of EURELECTRIC. Currently, except for Poland and Greece, relevant countries within the EU have signed in the agreement, striving to cease to build more coal-fired power plant following 2020. Ruby said that the present conflict within EURELECTRIC was mainly due to the various degree of EU countries’ reliance on the renewable energy. Some were heavily reliant on renewable energy while some mainly depended on coal. Obvious differences could be found among the northern, eastern and southern region of Europe.
