Intervenção do Ministro do Ambiente e da Ação Climática no evento «Building the 2025 European Battery Industry – Accelerate business initiatives along the battery value chain in Spain and Portugal»

There is this idea, that all our environmental woes and worries – like climate collapse – can be fixed if we are able to decarbonize our energy system to prevent pumping more CO2 into our atmosphere.

The sun, the wind, and water are but some of the sources of renewable energy that we can tap into. A fraction of what they provide can fuel the entire planet with enough energy to sustain us; therefore, tapping into that source will deliver clean, affordable and abundant energy for our needs. However, renewable energies are diffuse. This means they will always have to be captured through material structures.

In 2016, during the Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Portugal adopted the target of carbon neutrality by 2050, having developed a Roadmap for Carbon Neutrality 2050 (Roteiro para a Neutralidade Carbónica – RCN2050), which sets out Portugal’s vision, trajectory and guidelines for the policies and measures to be implemented within this time frame.

In line with the conclusions of the IPCC’s Special Report, the RCN2050 also stressed that greater efforts must be made during the 2021-2030 decade to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG), an essential decade to align the Portuguese economy with the path to carbon neutrality.
