Așa cum ne avertizează majoritatea oamenilor de știință, fenomenul de încălzire globală riscă să ducă la consecințe extrem de grave pentru umanitate în deceniile care vor veni.
România nu este scutită de acest val al schimbărilor climatice și, în acord cu politicile europene, trebuie să ia măsuri care să reducă emisiile de gaze cu efect de seră.

Although cutting emissions to net-zero by 2050 will destroy jobs and push up the costs of doing business in some sectors, it will bring gains elsewhere that will make up for the difference, according to a new study by McKinsey & company.
“Net-zero emissions by 2050 should be achievable at a net-zero cost without compromising overall economic growth or prosperity,” says the study by the global consulting firm, published on Thursday (3 December).

In its recent Renovation Wave, the European Commission outlined its vision on making Europe’s current building stock more energy efficient and sustainable by at least doubling the annual energy renovation rate of buildings by 2030.
Without any doubt, Europe has a unique opportunity to rethink, redesign and modernise our buildings to make them fit for a greener, more digital society, that generates a sustained economic recovery and creates better and healthier homes.

European Social, Cooperative and Public Housing providers aim at refurbishing 400,000 homes per year or 4 million homes by 2030.
This will decrease the energy consumption of the refurbished housing units on average by 50% by 2030, cut emissions with at least 50% and save up to €700 per year on average to each resident.

The plan confirms that improving energy efficiency by renovating buildings and clean transport is the bedrock of climate action.
A decreased energy demand will enable further emission reductions and keep energy costs low. This will help vulnerable households, improve living conditions and create local jobs.

According to the recently published Energy Transition Tracker, the energy-saving measures could lead to additional investments worth EUR 2.5 billion in the Western Balkans.
Under the Energy Efficiency Directive, Energy Community contracting parties need to improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2020, with new targets for 2030 to soon be adopted.

The process is beginning with a review of the Renewable Energy Directive (2018/2001/EU) and the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU and 2018/2002/EU). The review will be essential to identify how energy policies on renewables and energy efficiency will contribute in achieving the climate and environmental targets of the European Green Deal, the commission said.

This report presents a comparison of 8 scenarios achieving more than 50% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990, and 16 scenarios aiming at climate neutrality by 2050, similar with the ambitions of the “European Green Deal”. This report summarises insights into similar and diverging elements of the scenarios on how the EU energy system may change by 2030 and by 2050, compared to today.

This study is organised in three main parts: we begin by presenting the current state of play of storage technologies (deployment in Member States and key characteristics), then proceed to identify the need for various types of flexibility solutions at the 2030 and 2050 horizons, and finally examine the regulatory conditions that should be put in place to enable the market to deliver the appropriate level of energy storage technologies.
The three objectives can be summarised as:
