Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 20, 2012

This report was commissioned to the German National Centre for Aerospace, Energy and Transport Research by Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC). It concludes that around half a million jobs could be created in Europe by 2020 if renewables energies and energy efficiency were to be given priority in the political agenda over nuclear power and fossil fuels. This would require a drastical change in the way we produce, consume and distribute energy which encompasses the following 5 principles:
