affected areas too scared to reopen for trade. i'm going to send up very soon. so the other property and they're going to label the widespread looting will put further pressure on in already strange economy as the country battles of lethal 3rd wave. but the corona virus to europe. now, where the e u has laid out plans to be, to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. to do that, specialist wants to ban the sale of new combustion engine vehicles. after 2035. it's green deal proposal would also make factories power plants and airlines pay more to make carbon by revamping the existing emissions trading system. the plans will effect nearly every aspect of the european economy and are likely to face some heavy pushback from industry and poor a. you countries, his european commission,
8:21 pm
president fonda line. today, i'm proud to say that we have made good on our commitments. europe is now the very 1st continent that presents a comprehensive architecture to meet our climate ambitious. we have the goal, but now we present the roadmap to how we are going to get their our package aims to combine the reduction of emissions with measures to preserve nature. and to put jobs and social balance at the heart of this transformation. let's speak to mattie his book, he's director of european energy policy, the energy transition, think tank i go are and a give and thanks for joining us on data we business. just tell us all of these proposals. realistic from the technical perspective. yes, indeed, they are realistic. they have been many studies done by the commission,
8:22 pm
but also from think times like us, i tend to find the measures which can be taken off as a price lower than continuing to go and fuels. so it's really ah, you're paying consumers ultimately going to be paying for these policies because a lot of it involves companies paying more and presumably passing those costs on to their customers. so there will be some areas where prices will go up like it. so if it is concerning production based on faso eating, your homework with oil will become more and more expensive. driving fuel engine vehicles will become more expensive. on the other side, clean electricity will become cheaper. hitting your home with renewable electricity . pumps will become cheaper. driving electric cars will become cheaper than
8:23 pm
driving cars, combustion, and so it's back. what is clear to cents from the commission to says you are governments and citizens in europe. now we're getting serious about the targets of set ourselves. there's no time to waste. let's say the 100 questions on the measures needed. but there are a few things missing from this. for example, there is nothing in this to encourage individual to change the behavior. of course, in the proposals from the question they're proposing european laws, europeans, all, most of large governments, to some extent companies. they're very rarely, directly obliging citizens and you know, what will happen, of course. so this isn't, is that some of that typically which relate to profit fuel consumption, for instance, long all site incense will become active with other activities will become more
8:24 pm
affordable. so protecting the climate. so you will, as a citizen and europe see tense and in physical terms, we need to see chance. we will see a method ramping up off renewable electricity. over the next decade, we will see a search and fully electric vehicles. we will have what we call the renovation weights of the existing building. stock will need to be renovated because they do not know consistent with plans of trinity a requirements. and in many cases, businesses need to change the way they're operating because the business model is not consistent with time to try to plan. perhaps overestimate how fast that change can actually come about. for example, that aerospace fuels are a long way from being anything other than highly polluting
8:25 pm
it really depends on the sector. so in some sectors to take the example of the power sector. we know renewable electricity is the way to go forward on to wind also wind solar p v. in most cases, the already cheaper today building a new then continuing to burn fossil fuels in a gas or a coal fired to generate us. so this is a reality in the market already today. some of the measures proposed now, for instance, increasing the price on emitting carbon in europe. but the seller, it changes, so we see to call phase out in europe, continent by, by 2030. this is what the numbers are telling us. and so it's just really a question more not of the technical possibility of to nice and but barrier. they can push, push these change and fasten by forcing companies to need to do to save money. alternately macias book from ago or at any given thanks
8:26 pm
a lot for joining us on your business. take your matter a quick look at some of the other business stories making headlines. i don't call it has roads that thousands of folks spoken owners are in touch with the compensation in the diesel gate case. because in amsterdam set that compensation of up to $3000.00 euros per car was warranted. dennis had filed a class action suit over the german comic as rigging diesel. emission test is earning seasons for the top wall street bank. big lenders are seeing sharp, the higher profits in the 2nd quarter is the u. s. economy bounces back, shaping morgan's earnings. more than doubled while goldman sachs revenues and it's asset management, is an all time high. pm central bank is formerly beginning a project to create a digital your own plan aims to react to the growing popularity of crypto currencies and online payments. e. c. b will now begin exploring exactly how it
