Focus on carbon neutrality
The Green Deal Industrial Plan strengthens the competitiveness of European fully decarbonized industry and accelerates the transition to carbon neutrality. It does so by creating a more favourable environment for expanding EU manufacturing capacity for net-zero technologies and products needed to meet Europe's ambitious climate targets.
In its proposal for the Net Zero Industry Act (NZIA), the EU Commission designates net-zero technologies and sets explicit production targets for each technology. The Act also aims to create a regulatory framework suitable for rapid deployment by ensuring simplified and accelerated approval procedures, promoting European strategic projects, and developing standards to support the diffusion of technologies throughout the Single Market.
We at DKE are pleased that the Net Zero Industry Act refers explicitly to the development of European standards.
