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

• Implement renewable solutions, especially through decentralised energy systems and grid expansions

• Respect the natural limits of the environment

• Phase out dirty, unsustainable energy sources

• Create greater equity in the use of resources

• Decouple economic growth from the consumption of fossil fuels

The report reviews the Energy [R]evolution scenario and various pathways to reduce CO2 emissions in the 27 countries of the European Union, including projections for each technology.
