Energy Agenda: Towards a Low-Carbon Energy Supply

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2017
The Energy Agenda describes the choices to be made and the steps to be taken towards a low-carbon energy supply in 2050. The transition path towards 2050 and the associated policy efforts and other efforts are outlined for each functionality: low-temperature heat, high-temperature heat, power and light and transport.
 The Agenda is based on overarching themes for the entire energy transition, considering the following questions:
  • What does targeting CO2 reduction entail and what does it mean in practice for the four functionalities?
  • In what way can the energy transition be organised? (governance)
  • How can the energy transition be incorporated spatially? (regionally, space)
  • How can the technological breakthroughs be achieved? (innovation)
  • How can the investments be realised? (financing)
