Title: Multi-Objective Evaluation of Renewable Technology Subsidy Portfolios from COVID-19 Recovery Packages

Date: June 2021

Short description: To support the green transition, national recovery and resilience plans should allocate at least 37% of investments towards battling climate change and be aligned with the updated target of the European Green Deal of 55 emissions reduction by 2030.
