Podcast 6: Decarbonisation challenges

Decarbonisation strategies have to analyse the sectoral challenges, but have to develop integrated solutions, thinking ahead of what will be the energy sector of tomorrow, when all the current uses of fossil fuels will have to be replaced by electric energy produced by renewable sources, and by renewable fuels that do not generate impacts on climate, and minimize pollution. All should converge into system solutions, in which digital control means will boost efficiency. However, decarbonisation also requires behavioural and lifestyle changes, for which the participation of citizens is essential.
