Executive summary: The Greenpeace Climate Vision's Zero Emissions Pathway for the energy sector builds further upon the 2008 EREC/Greenpeace Energy [R]evolution scenario, with two additional sets of measures:

- the advanced phase-out of coal-fired power plants and their replacement by increasing the capacity and the faster deployment of wind, solar and geothermal energy;

- the advanced integration of two less-developed technologies: ocean power and battery electric vehicles.
