Technology pathways: what will the energy system of 2050 look like and what does it mean for R&I priorities

Technology is key for the EU’s energy transition, and for the EU to lead the way in the decarbonisation of the EU energy system towards 2050. This session will focus on what our 2050 ambition mean for R&I priorities in the coming years: what are the biggest challenges to solve if we imagine the energy system in 2050? What are the most important innovations and technology solutions needed for 2050 that we need to start developing now?

Inviting renowned experts, we are looking forward to an interesting debate that takes a systemic approach to the challenges of a fully decarbonised energy system in 2050.
