The Spain Government has given the green light to an ambitious draft climate law which tracks the ways for this southern EU country to become 100% renewable energy powered by 2050. In other words, the country will reach net-zero emissions no later than 2050.
To do so and to reach the position, the draft has outlined action lists of two decades, the 2030s and 2040s. In the recent decade, the country should secure 70% of electricity supplied from renewable energy. It also needs to decrease CO2 emission by 23% on the 1991 level by the end of this decade.
In the decade reaching the 2050 year, all new road vehicles in the country should become zero-emission. If Spain gets to these stages on time, it will become carbon neutral or 100% renewable energy powered by 2050. According to RenewEconomy, the new draft also puts the country in a position to match with the goals of the Paris Agreement and the EU Green Deal proposed by the European Commission and which would see Europe become the world’s first net-zero continent by 2050.
The draft law awaits Parliamentary approval. it is important to note that we expressed the main requirements generally, not in detail.
