Brussels, 30 March 2021 - ENZA, an alliance of 17 associations advocating for cross-sectoral and cross-vectoral climate neutrality solutions, was launched today.

ENZA (European Net Zero Alliance) brings together 17 EU associations in energy, industry, buildings, mobility, forestry and agriculture. ENZA aims to bridge the gap between energy vectors and energy-consuming sectors to reach 2050 climate neutrality.

At the launch, ENZA Chair Paul Voss stated: “Our members have come together because the easiest and most cost-effective pathway to 2050 climate neutrality is to take advantage synergies across a range of both sectors and vectors. We hope our cooperation is a living example of this principle translated into practice.”

ENZA presented its 10 guiding principles which are calling for:  the achievement of climate neutrality in the EU by 2050 at the latest, through clear and identifiable achievement of the 2030 target and intermediate energy and climate objectives that will help manage our common carbon budget in a cost-effective way; ambitious short- and long-term targets to incentivise renewable, decarbonised and low-carbon energy production; coherence between current and future legislation; use of existing and new infrastructure for efficient solutions; clear network access rules to leverage synergies between vectors; credible and tradable certificates ; technology neutrality; fit for purpose state aid rules to support climate-neutrality; efficient and affordable decarbonisation solutions for end users; facilitating and integrating decentralised solution while harnessing Europe’s well-functioning Internal Energy Market.
