Key insight: Prioritizing limited available green electricity for achieving climate goalsElectrification will play a significant role in decarbonization of our economy and reaching the 2030–2050 climate goals. VoltaChem conducted a study on where electrification and associated investments have the greatest impact in The Netherlands up to 2030.

Electrification of the industrial sector has a limited CO2 reduction potential compared to power transport and building sector when looking at the short term (<2030). However, a decarbonized industrial sector is key in reaching the 2050 climate goals. So, due to the potential for circularity and long Accelerating Industrial Electrification technology development cycles, the industry must be active in decarbonization already or at least from now on.
