The Paris Agreement on climate change aims to keep the rise in global temperature to below 2°C and to try to limit the increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. To achieve these targets, energy-intensive sectors will need to significantly reduce their emissions. The extent to which key EU industrial sectors can benefit and contribute to a climate-neutral future depends on their ability to implement existing mitigation technologies, and on the continued development and commercialization of new products and breakthrough technologies. The project takes a perspective to 2050 and beyond and analyses the technologies, pathways to 2050 and the policy mix needed for implementation.
