Science has played its part in warning about the dangers of global warming and climate change along with detailed inputs regarding the same, the temperature rise of the world is not something that can be neglected as the polar ice caps are disappearing at the fastest pace in the history of the world.
The world recorded the maximum melting of the arctic ice caps in the month of October, and this a clear indication of how fast our environment is changing and disturbing the whole climatic cycle.
European energy sector contributes to about 75% of the total greenhouse emissions in the region and though steps are taken to ensure lower carbon footprinting and emissions in accordance with the Paris agreement that was signed by the world leaders to address and combat the effects of climate change and greenhouse emissions, a lot more needs to be done to be on course in reaching the net zero emissions target that was so ambitiously set up for 2050.
Future-proofing the European energy sector is of imperative importance if the region has to build upon the promises it asserted in the agreement and that would mean incorporation of extensive ranges of renewable and their products along with a trans-Europe smart grid system to supply and create energy at the portions available and at the same point of time ensuring that nobody s left behind in the developmental curve.
The European Council’s energy policy has provided for the basic structure for such a development phase to commence with increasing in pollution tariffs and supporting the idea of a greener energy production by subsidizing various schemes, but a lot more needs to be done, and that will only depend upon the political will of all the member state combined to ensure a sustainable and a stable future for Europe and the world.
