Every year, Carbon-Free Europe partners with Evolved Energy Research to create an Annual Decarbonisation Perspective (ADP) for the EU & UK. The ADP provides annual insights into Europe’s progress towards carbon neutrality, by using cutting-edge energy systems models to evaluate the latest changes in energy policy and technology costs. This page, and its scrolling table of contents, guides you through CFE's 2023 study.
Russia's invasion of Ukraine shed light on Europe's energy dependence on Russian
fossil fuels, resulting in an energy supply and price crisis. With increased pressure to accelerate the energy transition while also ensuring energy sovereignty, EU policymakers have now finalised most files within the Fit for 55 package and the Commission's REPowerEU plan. Meanwhile, in the UK, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has prioritised stabilising the economy and combatting the energy crisis. These events drastically impacted 2022’s energy landscape, with these effects reflected in CFE’s 2023 analysis.
