Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council
The good news first. Renewable energy, combined with the smart use of energy, can deliver half of the world’s energy needs by 2050. This new report, ‘Energy [R]evolution: A sustainable World Energy Outlook’, shows that it is economically feasible to cut global CO2 emissions by almost 50% within the next 43 years. It also concludes that a massive uptake of renewable energy sources is technically possible. All that is missing is the right policy support.
