SENTINEL final event: How can the European Union achieve climate-neutrality by 2050?


The Technoeconomics Energy Systems laboratory (TEESlab), in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, the Renewables Grid Initiative, the Delft University of Technology, and the Autonomous University of Barcelona, are organising the SENTINEL final event, entitled “Advancing energy modelling to inform a sustainable transition to climate-neutrality in the European Union”. The aim of the event is to present the key findings of the project and the implications about the transition to carbon neutrality by 2050 in the European Union.

Date: Wednesday, November 23 2022

Time: 14:00-16:00 CET

Over the past 3.5 years, the Sustainable Energy Transition Laboratory (SENTINEL) has worked with a wide range of stakeholders from policy, industry, NGOs, and research to develop new energy modelling tools and further develop existing ones that can support the sustainable transition to climate neutrality. Within this context, the SENTINEL modelling teams will showcase their modelling results and answer questions regarding different transition pathways towards achieving the vision of climate neutrality by 2050 in Europe.

You can find the programme of the event below:

    1. Welcome & SENTINEL in a nutshell
    2. SENTINEL stakeholder engagement process: How did it influence the modelling work?
    3. SENTINEL modelling results in 20’ & key impacts
    4. Panel debate with modellers: How can we achieve climate-neutrality in 2050? What are the environmental and social implications of the transition? What measures are critical now for the energy transition?
    5. Closing & Outlook: What is next?
