Moving towards decarbonization

This event is organized by the Department of Strategy and Innovation

We are facing profound changes in the energy system of our economy and society. The worsening climate crisis requires a rapid and determined shift away from fossil fuels towards renewable energies. Only through consistent decarbonization can we achieve our ambitious climate targets. What new business areas and models will these changes bring? We will be discussing whether and how these changes can be achieved without sacrificing economic prosperity.
