Solutions for Whole System Decarbonisation

Why Energy Transition 2.0 Europe?

Energy transition is happening across Europe, driven by net-zero policy targets and innovation, but the sector still accounts for two-thirds of Europe’s emissions. With demand still rising, we must employ a myriad of new technologies, investment opportunities, business models, and regulatory frameworks to ensure net-zero by 2050.

Energy Transition 2.0 Europe (ETE2.0), organised by Climate Action, will convene 300 major stakeholders from power, heat, and transport to discuss the decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system. ETE2.0 strengthens industry networks, investment, and commitments, identifying innovative solutions supporting the decarbonisation of all energy systems through a whole systems approach.


What to expect?

Building Cities for Net Zero
Digital European Energy Transition
Electric Vs. Hydrogen
Meeting Demands for Sustainable Mobility Systems
Who Pays for the Energy Transition?
Smart Distributed Energy Grids
Why Now?
  • In November 2020, the UNFCCC’s COP26 meeting will play an era-defining role in shaping how we regulate, manage and operate our traditional energy systems. Energy will take center stage at COP26 as governments update their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to achieve net-zero.
Why the UK?
  • The UK was the first developed nation to set a net-zero target for 2050. As official host of COP26 this November in Glasgow, the UK’s role in shaping the future of climate challenge is key.


Energy Transition 2.0 Europe is a 1-day specialised programme that focusses on a whole systems approach to decarbonisation, asking the questions: Who pays for the energy transition? How are renewables transforming generation? What role does decentralisation have in shaping our energy future? How to accommodate and expand solutions for low carbon transport and heat?



Renewable energy, distributed generation, battery storage, carbon capture storage, nuclear energy



Hydrogen networks, CHP, electric boilers, ground-source heat pumps



Electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, liquid fuels, hydrogen batteries

300 attendees from across Europe will comprise:

(The above statistics are estimates based on target audience and past Climate Action events)

ETE 2.0 will be attended by senior decision-makers from the following sectors:

  • Government: national, local, and municipal
  • Regulators
  • Power/utilities (generation, transition mission and distribution operators)
  • Clean energy (renewables, carbon capture and storage, smart grid, energy efficiency, virtual power plants)
  • Project developers (EPCs)
  • Sustainable financiers and investors
  • Large power consumers: corporates/energy end users
  • Electric Vehicles/alternative fuels and EV Infrastructure
  • Technology: large power equipment manufacturers/OEMs
  • Battery and energy storage suppliers
  • Energy consultants and lawyers
  • Fossil fuels (oil & gas, coal), metals, materials and rare earth mineral suppliers

Considering the recent public health crisis around COVID-19, Climate Action has made the extremely difficult decision to postpone all upcoming live events due to take place within the next 5-months, including the launch of Energy Transition 2.0 Europe (ETE2.0).

Given the severity and escalation in COVID-19 cases as well as the increase in travel restrictions across Europe, we believe the best course of action is to follow the advice of public health officials during this time. This difficult decision is not made lightly, however we must seriously consider the safety and comfort of all those attending and the greater implications of hosting a large gathering at this point in time.

With this said, we have decided to reorganise ETE2.0 into a digital event series. Over the next 3 months, Climate Action will be hosting webinars that reflect the ETE2.0 agenda as well as a new Energy Insights editorial series hearing from key industry experts on the energy transition. These two series’ will be hosted and promoted on our digital media platform climateaction.org. Further information on the webinar series will be shared shortly onto this website, including session topics and how to register. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause.
