The European Commission just published its Green Deal to make Europe climate neutral by 2050. To realise this, a soft approach from Brussels probably won’t work. This will require a change in governance, with a larger role for Brussels.
But will member states agree to that?
Máximo Miccinilli, CERRE’s Energy Director, talked to Politico: “My fear is that there will be two Europes: the group of member states that will move ahead like Denmark, or the Netherlands, and other member states that will say, ‘We don’t follow any more. It’s so far from what we can achieve; this is not improvement anymore’ ”.
