Power Generation and transmission thresholds in the EU Taxonomy Delegated Act on climate change mitigation and adaption
Following the publication of the European Commission’s draft Delegated Act on the EU Sustainable Taxonomy, we are writing to express our strong support for the taxonomy thresholds based on climate and environmental science. We welcome the 100g CO2e/kWh life-cycle intensity limit for substantial contribution to climate mitigation, which is derived through a robust and scientific process, and was recommended by TEG. Emissions from fossil fuels are beyond this threshold and we applaud the Commission for upholding it in the draft Delegated Act.
