Position papers

Vattenfall's position papers reflect our opinion on various energy and climate topics.

We believe that:

  • Electrification is fundamental to achieving the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. Therefore, we support a healthy investment environment and regulatory frameworks that promote electrification technologies.
  • A mix of different fossil-free technologies is vital for a secure and stable energy supply.
  • Increased security of Europe’s energy infrastructure, both digitally and physically, is necessary to ensure that all citizens in Europe have a safe and consistent supply of energy.
  • Public engagement and participation are essential to facilitate a fair and fast energy transition.
  • Innovation is integral to the energy transition. This is why we support legislation that enables the acceleration of key fossil-free solutions, and why we collaborate with innovators in hard-to-abate sectors.
  • Market-orientated solutions and a high price on carbon deliver the most clean and cost-efficient energy system. Therefore, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) is, and should remain, the main driver for fossil-free living for all people in Europe.
