Third Way – Firm Energy Sources: How the US & Europe are Financing the Path to Net-Zero
Achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 will require a technology-inclusive approach that utilizes every low- and zero-carbon option. This is especially critical in sectors that are challenging to electrify, like transportation and industry.
In comparing finance mechanisms for clean energy technologies across the US and Europe, we hope to emphasize the role of “firm”, dispatchable clean energy sources as a complement to renewables like wind and solar. Experts from the Biden Administration, European NGOs, and intergovernmental economic organizations discuss how energy markets are shifting to support emerging clean energy technologies that will play a pivotal role in our global decarbonization strategy.
