EU Energy [R]evolution: moving towards 100% renewables in 2050

Publication - July 8, 2010
Forty years ago, climate change was unheard of, fossil fuels were plentiful and renewable energy from wind, water, sun and heat was little more than a dream. Since then, Europe has developed green energy technologies and adopted strong targets for the growth of the sector over coming years. The EU Energy [R]evolution roadmap, commissioned by Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC), looks at the potential for the next forty years. It demonstrates how Europe can move towards an efficient and fully renewable energy system to ensure security of energy supply, create green jobs, cut CO2 emissions and rising energy prices, and encourage innovation.
