Metastudy: Analysis on 2050 energy scenarios: policy briefing

SEFEP working paper no. 2012-5, Smart Energy for Europe Platform

In recent years various stakeholders have published many different long-term energy scenarios to highlight possible ways to decarbonise the European energy system. This Policy Briefing summarizes a comprehensive metastudy of energy scenarios for Europe conducted by the Wuppertal Institute and Öko-Institut on behalf of the Smart Energy for Europe Platform (SEFEP). Eleven decarbonisation scenarios from four different scenario studies have been analysed within the metastudy. One of the meatstudy's key results highlighted in this Policy Briefing is that a continued strong expansion of renewable energy use in combination with significant improvements in energy efficiency are key climate change mitigation strategies which all scenarios agree will be essential for Europe to realize its long-term climate targets.
