Making the EU 100 per cent renewables-based

The European Renewable Energy Council (EREC), outlines in its new report “RE-thinking 2050” a pathway that would allow the EU to switch to a 100 per cent renewable energy supply for electricity, heating and cooling as well as transport, examining the effects on the EU’s energy supply system and on CO2 emissions. “The potential benefits of a future based on renewable energy are multiple: mitigating climate change, ensuring energy security and creating sustainable future-oriented jobs,” points out Arthouros Zervos, President of EREC.
