Renewable Energy Prospects for the European Union (REmap EU), identifies cost-effective renewable energy options for all EU Member States – spanning a wide range of sectors and technologies – to accelerate the deployment of renewables towards 2030. The study also identifies areas where further action could be taken to unleash the full renewable energy potential identified.
Some conclusions from the study:
- The 27% renewable target agreed in 2014 may be regarded as a conservative objective for the EU, as the EU could double the renewable share in its energy mix, cost effectively, by 2030.
- All EU countries have cost-effective potential to use more renewables.
- Renewables are vital for long-term decarbonisation of the EU energy system.
