More than 80% of electricity in the EU will be produced from renewable energy by 2050, with about 15% from nuclear, according to the European Commission’s new “strategic long-term vision” for a carbon-neutral economy, which was released on Wednesday.

The 25-page document, entitled “A Clean Planet for All”, highlights seven “main strategic building blocks” to enable this energy transition — decarbonising Europe’s energy supply through renewables; clean transport; energy efficiency; the circular economy; smart network infrastructure; bioenergy and carbon sinks; and carbon capture and storage (CCS) to tackle “remaining CO2 emissions”.
