Decarbonising the EU through green gas would be 36% more expensive than doing so through energy efficiency and smart electrification.

That's according to a new report published by the European Climate Foundation, which suggests this is even the case in European countries with a cold climate.

It finds that a fossil-free energy system in Europe could be reached by 2050 and could potentially create 1.8 million additional jobs by this time.
