Paths to Net-Zero: Key Year 2030
Germany aims to be carbon-neutral by 2045. But is it realistic? Where do we stand on the journey to carbon neutrality, and what are the associated costs? The team led by JARA-ENERGY scientist Prof. Detlef Stolten has published a study concentrating on the year 2030.
The analysis by the scientists indicates that achieving Net-Zero by 2045 is still feasible. However, the models also recognize that the year 2030 marks a crucial turning point. Detlef Stolten, Director of the Jülich Institute for Techno-Economic Systems Analysis, emphasizes that comprehensive measures across all sectors must be implemented by 2030 to meet the goals of the German Climate Protection Act. It is crucial to establish the prerequisites for the targeted carbon neutrality by 2045 in the next seven years.
