By 2045 Germany can achieve climate neutrality: By 2045, Germany can achieve climate neutrality five years earlier than its planned goal.
The first important step for the country’s climate neutrality by 2045 is a 65% reduction of emissions by 2030 according to a new study by the Climate Neutrality Foundation and think tanks Agora Energiewende and Agora Verkehrswende.
The examination also stresses the additional carbon reductions can be accomplished through changes in heating systems, an development of heating networks and around a 50% increase in the green retrofit rate.
The writers of the report estimate these intensified measures could help the country achieve carbon-neutrality by 2043 and climate neutrality by preventing or counterweigh all greenhouse gas emissions in 2045.
The report suggests, Germany will likely have net negative emissions that could support the global climate fight, if the new accelerated measures are kept beyond 2045
