NEW INSIGHTS BRIEFING

Better, Faster, Cleaner: Securing clean energy technology supply chains

In its latest Insights Briefing, the Energy Transitions Commission shows that the clean energy transition can be delivered on-time and at an affordable cost if supply chain risks are minimised by policy and industry action.

6
Electric vehicle sales need to grow six-fold, to over 60 million, by 2030 to decarbonise passenger road transport – provided supply of critical battery materials can scale quickly and sustainably.
100
Electrolyser costs need to fall below $500/kW as quickly as possible, to scale green hydrogen production to over 20 Mt each year by 2030 and drive decarbonisation in hard-to-abate sectors.
600 GW
Solar manufacturing capacity should easily be able to meet over 600 GW of installations each year by 2030.

Better, Faster, Cleaner: Securing clean energy technology supply chains

ETC analysis highlights how rapidly scaling sustainable, diversified, and resilient clean energy supply chains is key to achieving net-zero targets on-time and at as low a cost as possible

POLICY TOOLKIT

EU Policy Toolkit

The accompanying EU Policy Toolkit provides an overview of Europe’s energy transition goals, assesses the current landscape for European clean energy supply chains, and defines key priorities for EU policymakers to navigate risks and opportunities.

ETC

Overview

The Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) is a global coalition of leaders from across the energy landscape working together to accelerate the transition to a zero-emissions future.

We develop transition roadmaps and tools building on robust analysis and extensive exchanges with experts and practitioners across energy-intensive value chains. This work is generally undertaken with a range of partners, industry associations, NGOs and experts. In the harder-to-abate sectors specifically, we work under the umbrella of the Mission Possible Platform, an initiative established by the ETC and the World Economic Forum.

Our main areas of focus

Our activities encompass the energy sector itself, as well as key energy-consuming sectors in industry, transport and buildings.

In each sector, we work with corporate leaders to define a pathway to net-zero emissions and establish the building blocks of net-zero value chains. This work is generally undertaken with a range of partners, industry associations, NGOs and experts. In the harder-to-abate sectors specifically, we work under the umbrella of the Mission Possible Platform, an initiative established by the ETC and the World Economic Forum.
