E.ON study: Climate targets in 2030 achievalbe with ambitious CO2 price
With this message E.ON CEO Johannes Teyssen addressed more than 150 guests from politics in Berlin at our Parliamentary Evening on October 16.
He has long advocated that CO2 should have a price - with a model that unburdens citizens where energy is already green and gives clear price signals where fossil fuels are still being used. Such a measure, combined with society’s wish for climate protection and digitization, would be the central driver for an energy turnaround in Germany that goes beyond the pure electricity sector. It makes an integrated energy turnaround possible that takes both transport and heat into account. And this is the only way to achieve the German climate targets for 2030 and 2050.
In Berlin, E.ON presented a study on the effects of CO2 prices on the building, transport and energy sectors - prepared by the Institute for Energy Economics at the University of Cologne GmbH (EWI) and the Institute for Future Energy Consumer Needs and Behavior (FCN) of the E.ON Energy Research Center (E.ON ERC) and RWTH Aachen University.
