A blue print developed by Greenpeace and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) describes a revolution for energy safety, innovation and long-term security. It details the potential of a sustainable EU energy system, and demonstrates that by 2050, it will be possible to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the energy sector by more than 70% compared to 1990 levels and phase out nuclear power entirely.
Executive summary: A combination of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency is a clean, cost-effective and secure solution. It has almost no impact on our climate system; it offers Europe independence from global market fluctuations in fossil and nuclear fules, and it provides future generations with secure access to energy.
