Standford University and Ecofys Consulting present their analysis on 100% renewables scenario
Register for the webinars
by Fernando Nuño
While Europe and other regions of the world have defined their targets by 2020 in terms of renewable share of their energy consumption, at the 2050 horizon it seems more and more realistic to reach a fully sustainable and renewable global energy system.
The recently published UN-backed report explicitly indicates that renewable sources can meet most global energy demands (read the news here). On the other hand, the International Energy Agency found that fossil fuels currently attract $312bn in consumption subsidies, versus $57bn for renewable energy (see the Clean Energy Progress Report).
Two first line organizations have drawn their scenarios and share them with Leonardo Energy audience through the following 2 webinars:
The Energy Report, published by Ecofys and WWF
Webinar on Tuesday, June 14, 2011 – 16:00 Brussels Time
A Plan for Powering the World for all Purposes With Wind, Water, and Sunlight, by Standford University
Webinar on Tuesday, June 16, 2011 – 16:00 Brussels Time
Looking forward to meeting you in the webinars.
