The EU Commission has recently presented its vision for a climate-neutral Europe by 2050. But uttering such a claim is one thing , says Frederic Michel Verdier. The other, more important one is: is the EU executive’s proposal in touch with what is going on in our world?

In order to answer this question, the Commission’s in-house think tank EPSC has deciphered 10 crucial trends that are currently reshaping livelihoods, energy markets and policy frameworks, and how these will determine whether Europe can achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Here they are:

1. Climate Change: From distant threat to here and now
2. A changing energy mix: renewables surge, but fossil fuels still dominate
3. As business shifts to clean energy technologies, financial markets follow suit – slowly
4. Benefits of environmental economy spreading unevenly
5. Energy demand transformed, as responsible consumerism kicks in
6. Digitalisation driving an energy revolution
7. Electrification rhymes with democratization, as well as fragmentation
8. Pivot East: rising energy demand in Asia drives innovation
9. New energy supply risks emerging
10. Net-zero emissions no longer a dream, as innovation gradually delivers
