How do we get there?

Ongoing negotiations in EU discuss the annulation of billions of emissions allowances, with positive potential for rising electricity prices as a result. On the other hand, the existence of the Guarantees of Origins is under threat. Are the sum of the efforts enough to achieve a fully renewables-based energy system by 2050? And is the milestone RES target for 2030 ambitious enough to keep us on track?
