The future Dutch full carbon-free energy system
Dutch energy system will look quite different in 2050 from what we have now. It is very important to have a detailed view on the expected 2050 system so that an efficient transition can be defined and realized. Many published scenarios still make use of a considerable amount of carbon fuels in 2050 which makes it difficult to arrive at the desired CO2 emission targets. It is often claimed that this cannot be achieved without the (extensive) use of CCS technology.
