This morning in Finland - some of our Finnish friends projected the message ‘Energy Security = Renewables’ onto the Sibelius Hall in Lahti, Finland, which was stuffed to the gills with EU leaders having informal an EU summit is taking place. Is that a bit like those casual Fridays that some offices have? No suits, and they're all flopping around in jeans and t-shirts?
Anyhow, we're urging European leaders to stop relying on fuel imports and put renewable energy and energy efficiency at the core of their energy security discussions.
We reckon that almost half of Europe’s total energy demand could be met from renewable energy sources by 2050 - at the same time, carbon dioxide emissions from the sector could be reduced by more than 70% by 2050 (compared to 1990 levels) while phasing out nuclear power entirely.

Still today the majority favors renewables before nuclear. Download the report »
