  • In the context of increasing public climate change awareness and plummeting costs for wind and solar photovoltaics, discussions on increasing CO$_2$ reduction targets for Europe have started. Here, we model alternative transition paths with strict carbon budget for the sector-coupled networked European energy system. We show that up-to-date costs for wind and solar and the inclusion of highly resolved time series for balancing make climate action with renewables more cost-effective than… CONTINUE READING
