Netherland acknowledged failure to meet CO2 reduction target but without holding on there, is leapfrogging towards 55% C

"How the Netherlands plans to spend €28bn on slashing emissions by 2030"
Netherland duly acknowledged that the country has missed previous CO2 reduction target. However, the country is now forging ahead with newly set target of 55% emission mitigation by 2030. The reduction target set in 2019 in climate act is 49% only. Allocation of €28 bn for this emission reduction, setting improved target and trying varied energy mix – all these three steps are indications of the serious intent of the country for climate action. The new emission reduction plan consists various options. €5 bn is booked for setting up of two Nuclear Power Plants by 2035. These two nuclear power plants shall not start operation before 2030 and, therefore, shall not contribute to emission reduction till 2030. At present only 1% of power is generated from one old 482 MW Nuclear power plant at Netherland. In spite of limited experience, Netherland is opting for Nuclear power generation. The courage for adopting less known option is lauded. It is reported that US scientists have made commendable advancement in generation of power from fusion. EROI (Energy return on investment) of this new fusion technology is more than one. Standardization and upgradation of lab-based trials of nuclear fusion technology may show new avenues for CO2 reduction to many countries including Netherland.

            The Netherlands' efforts should serve as an example for other countries to follow suit and take the necessary steps to address the climate crisis.
