Only a mix of technologies can realise a clean economy by 2050 in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is capable of achieving an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This is possible by implementing a mix of reduced energy demand, use of biomass, carbon capture and storage, and clean electricity generation accompanied by an increased share of electricity in final energy demand.

This will require a comprehensive and prolonged process of change and therefore quick action is necessary.
