SPEECH of the 1 December 2020 “Ocean Energy Europe Conference”
We are on the verge of a huge transformation in our society. And no, I’m not speaking about the pandemic and its effects that we’ve seen this year.
This is a moment of profound change for the energy sector. Innovation, market dynamics and ultimate our climate are forcing us to rethink and reconsider everything we took for granted over the past decades in our energy system. We are closing the door on the age of coal and fossil fuels and opening a new one to the age of renewables.
This new age includes our goal of a climate neutral Europe by 2050 and a 55% reduction in emissions within the next ten years.
