Roadmap 2050: a practical guide to a prosperous, low-carbon Europe has two primary objectives: a) to investigate the technical and economic feasibility of achieving at least an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions below 1990 levels by 2050, while maintaining or improving today’s levels of electricity supply reliability, energy security, economic growth and prosperity; and b) to derive the implications for the European energy system over the next 5 to 10 years.
Power Perspective 2030
Power Perspectives 2030 builds on the widely referenced Roadmap 2050: a practical guide to a prosperous low-carbon Europe, and provides an analysis of the next steps required in the development of the European power sector by 2030 in order to remain on track to full decarbonisation by 2050.
Roadmap to reality
Over the last few years, ECF has been running a process on the transition to a low-carbon economy Europe, in cooperation with a large group of stakeholders in the energy debate. So far this has resulted in two pieces of technical and economic analysis: Roadmap 2050: a practical guide to a prosperous, low carbon Europe (April 2010) and Power Perspective 2030: on the road to a decarbonised power sector (November 2011).
The Contributing Studies to Roadmap 2050 is a set of publications strategically addressing some of the main challenges and short-term priorities as indentified by the Roadmap 2050 analysis in the move towards a low-carbon economy in Europe.
