The energy of the future: benefits of electrification
The European Union has increased its 2030 climate ambition, pushing the target to at least a 55% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990, in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. We will need a vast expansion of renewables and a huge increase in the number of vehicles, products and processes that run on electricity to get there. Electricity, powered by renewable energy, is the most efficient and cost-effective solution: it is clean, cheap and high-performance.
There are many benefits to switching to electricity in our daily lives:
- CLEAN UP THE ENERGY WE USE: Electricity produced with an increasingly renewable energy mix is the only route for a truly clean energy system.
- SAVE MONEY ON OUR BILLS: When our appliances or rides are electric, we can save energy because they are more efficient compared with other energy carriers.
- TURN OUR HOME INTO A SMART HOME: Electric appliances can be digitalized through smart technologies. New products and services are available to the customer and support its empowerment.
- HEALTHIER, CLEANER AND MORE LIVEABLE CITIES: Switching from the direct use of fossil fuels to electricity leads to better air quality by reducing the emissions of local pollutants.
