Can corporations truly become the driving force of the renewable transition?
In October this year the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released their most stark warning yet on the global impact of failing to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
At the same time, the renewable energy transition in Europe is at a crossroads as it moves from being subsidy driven, to market driven. A world where corporations would then, naturally, take up more of the market. However, corporates must first be convinced of the investment benefits.
To what extent, however, are European corporations a driving force in the energy transition? What progress has been made so far and what factors, if any, keep corporations from pursuing their goals? Do corporations see the transition as an opportunity or a challenge? And are governments helping or hindering the speed of transition?
The latest BayWa r.e. Energy Report provides answers to these questions by analysing the views of corporations across six key European countries on how they view renewable energy. The full report was released in May 2019.
Background: The BayWa r.e. Energy Report series
The BayWa r.e. Energy Report 2019 surveyed a total of 1,200 companies with more than 500 employees based in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Poland. The study was carried out amongst corporate decision-makers operating in one of the following areas: energy providers, factory or company equipment, property and buildings, technical equipment and machinery or raw and fuel materials.
The BayWa r.e. Energy Report 2019 is the first, systematic, quantitative opinion survey providing meaningful and comparable insights into the attitudes of European medium-sized and large companies towards the energy transition, current energy policy issues, sustainability targets and plans to source renewable energy in the next five years.
The BayWa r.e. Energy Report series was launched in 2015 in order to find out more about European consumer’s support for the energy transition. The first edition focused on private households in Germany and the attitudes of Germans towards the energy transition. Download the German version (no further languages available). The second edition, published in 2017, provided meaningful insights into the energy supply of German companies and the prevailing attitude of companies towards renewables.
