Accelerating decarbonation : implementing a minimum CO2 price for electricity in Western Europe

In order to comply with its contribution to the Paris Agreement, the European Union has to limit the emissions of industries running on fossil fuels as soon as possible. To target the largest reservoir of emissions reductions in Europe, we call for a carbon price floor for the electricity sector of 20 to 30 € per ton of CO2 by 2020 in Western Europe. The attached document is the English translation of a policy paper Terra Nova initially published in September 2017 about decarbonation, which was largely applauded both by professional networks and the French media.
