Clean energy

To prevent further economic and social damage from climate change, fossil fuels need to stay in the ground. The price for coal, oil and natural gas direct after extraction needs to become so low, that it is not profitable anymore to search for new wells and to exploit existing ones. This is a tremendous challenge, because large economic interests are at stake. Main route is to make renewable energy cheaper than the costs of fossil energy including the strongly needed carbon taxes. In an intermediate period carbon capture and storage can help the transition to a fossil free energy sector, without further adding to the concentration of CO2 in the global atmosphere. So, clean energy is the core of energy and climate policy.
