Solar power will grow by a factor of 8 in the period 2010 to 2030 supplying more than 6% of the EU electricity
For renewables, the policy scenarios in the Energy Roadmap 2050 indicate a share of around 30% in 2030.
Higher shares of renewable energy, energy efficiency improvements and better and smarter energy infrastructure are "no regrets" options for transforming the EU's energy system
About the project
MILESECURE-2050 project aims to understand and overcome the political, economical and behavioural traits and trends that led Europe to its difficulties in reducing fossil fuel consumption, and in diversifying its energy balance at rates which guarantee European energy security in the next years (more specifically at the horizon 2050), reduce the threat of climate change, and diminish the risk of an energy gap in the coming decades.
The 6th International Sustainability Transitions (IST-6) Conference will be hosted on 25 -28 August 2015 by SPRU (the Science Policy Research Unit) at the University of Sussex in Brighton (UK). As in previous years, the IST conference will provide opportunities for scholars to share theoretical, empirical and practical advances in the field of sustainability transitions.
