Climate neutrality, Energy security and Sustainability - A pathway to bridge the gap through Sufficiency, Efficiency and Renewables

June 2023

This report is the result of 4 years of collaborative work between European experts from the academia and civil society of 20+ European countries, under the leadership of the négaWatt Association. The CLEVER scenario, which covers 30 countries (EU27 plus United-Kingdom, Norway and Switzerland2 ), is based on a unique approach that combines sufficiency, efficiency and renewables and aims to reconcile longterm climate and sustainability imperatives with short-term energy security constraints.
