The message was delivered by Councillor Octavian Stamate from the EU Energy and Climate Action Section of the Delegation of the European Union to China. Mr Stamate said that the current COVID-19 crisis brings out the opportunity to accelerate the clean energy transition and transform our energy systems, by making them greener, safer, smarter, more reliable and sustainable. “The EU and China have chosen to follow the path towards full decarbonisation, in 2050 and, respectively, 2060. As the energy sector offers the biggest potential for decarbonisation, the clean energy transition will lead to a significant reduction in GHG emission on the planet”, he said.
