Logo START2030

START2030 aims at providing comprehensive analyses of the economic incidence and social impacts of a transition to a 100% renewable electricity system by 2030. Policy scenarios will be analysed to depict the broad range of effects of this transformation.

The analysis will deliver insights on the emission impact as well as on the macroeconomic and distributional effects of the transformation. Policy recommendations on how to mitigate detrimental effects on vulnerable groups will be derived. The project is carried out under the leadership of the Austrian Institute for Economic Research (WIFO) and in cooperation with the Centre of Economic Scenario Analysis and Research (CESAR).
