How to achieve an orderly and just transition, while ensuring that it is cost-efficient?

The energy transition should be just, competitive, global, and cost-efficient, supported by science and technology, keeping in mind that it will be the companies, the self-employed, SMEs, and consumers who will bear the cost. This is why it is necessary to promote different strategies so that industries and citizens can have more sustainable energy, both at home and in their mobility.


These are the areas in which you can develop your proposals, you can choose more than one.

Extended information

Europe has set itself the goal of being the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. To do so, it plans to reduce its emissions by 50% by 2030, which implies great efforts to decarbonize the economy.

For this, it is necessary to promote different strategies that allow financing the cost of the transition without this meaning the loss of competitiveness of industries and the relocation of the industrial fabric, and for citizens to be able to deal with the increase in the costs of using more sustainable energy, both at home and in their mobility.

On the other hand, it is necessary to promote regulatory proposals in countries that respond to European regulation, guaranteeing an orderly and coordinated transition in all sectors of the economy.

Without forgetting that it is necessary to promote educational programs that allow these concepts to be brought closer to society in a simple, clear, and neutral way, so that they understand their role in this transition and become an active part of the change.
