PATHS 2050

We have investigated the most optimal way to make Belgium climate neutral by 2050, and this at the lowest social costs. We took into account the current high prices and looked at the horizon to 2030 and 2050. Is it even possible for Belgium to be climate neutral by 2050? And if so, will climate policy be affordable for our society by 2050? Our results were captured in a platform to view these results at a glance, across different sectors – electricity, industrial, transport, hydrogen and residential & commercial.

For the platform, which was dubbed PATHS 2050 – The Power of Perspective, more than 200 EnergyVille researchers work together to draw up data-driven roadmaps for three different scenarios – scenarios that each describe a different possible route for a journey towards Belgian carbon neutrality by 2050 .
