Each solution promoted by DecarbEurope is technology-based, cost-effective, market-mature, scalable and provides concrete solutions for a smart and user-centric energy system with ambitious targets. DecarbEurope wants to encourage policy and market instruments to remove barriers that are currently hindering those solutions from full-scale activation. And that message has not passed unnoticed, witness the foreword by Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete:

“To create growth and jobs, the EU industry must be at the forefront of the clean energy transition. Accordingly, the Commission welcomes industry-led initiatives that might strengthen industrial links in the overall value chain and integrate non-economic actors such as social partners and consumer organisations. Initiatives like DecarbEurope can help to promote the EU global leadership in clean energy and low-carbon technological solutions.”
