Why 2050 scope?• Important to know what’s ahead to be prepared• 2050 seems far away but it’s only 1 or 2 investment cycles away• Is the EU ambition -80% in 2050 feasible?• Limits of local policy levers: defining the roles• The temptation of low hanging fruit vs. measures on mid and long term: aligning is essential• Spotting opportunities for innovationFocus on strengths and Energy loop in The Loopbusiness cases for tomorrow 16
