Scenario for a future energy supply

Moving from principles to action for energy supply that mitigates against climate change requires a long-term perspective. Energy infrastructure takes time to build up; new energy technologies take time to develop. Policy shifts often also need many years to take effect. In most world regions the transformation from fossil to renewable energies will require additional investment and higher supply costs over about twenty years.

EREC and the DLR undertook a detailed research about the current renewable heating technology markets, market forecasts, cost projections and state of the technology development. The cost projection (see section 4.9) as well as the technology option (see Chapter 9) have been used as an input information for this new Energy [R]evolution scenario.
