Energy [R]evolution. A Sustainable EU 27 Energy Outlook (2012)

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:

Energy Revolution: A Sustainable Latin America Energy Outlook (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 29, 2011

This report, produced by Greenpeace International and EREC (European Renewable Energy Council), explores possible scenarios of energy use in Latin America.

The report develops a sustainable energy pathway up to 2050, including energy technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, among others.

Nowadays, renewable energy sources account for 27% of Latin America’s primary energy demand. Biomass is used for heating and constitutes the main renewable energy source, followed by hydro power.

District Heating in Denmark (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 25, 2010

This is a presentation of the Managing Director of the Danish Board of District Heating (DBDH), Mr. Jes B. Christensen on the district heating sector in Denmark.

The presentation gives detailed information on the Danish district heating market in Denmark, since the first years in the 70s until nowadays, with references to the legal framework and the government incentive schemes.

These slides also show how district heating has helped reduce CO2 emissions and make Denmark a key example for energy self-sufficiency in Europe.

Solar Thermal Hydrogen Production via Reforming and Thermo-Chemical-Cycles (2007)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 6, 2009

This 2007 research paper explains how solar thermal could be used in the production of renewable hydrogen. It acknowledges that for achieving a hydrogen economy in the first place, the basis will be the use of fossil fuels. However, a further step would be that the conventional production processes will have to be substituted by renewable technologies.
