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

the global energy [r]evolution 2007

The Energy [R]evolution Scenario describes how to reduce worldwide emissions by 50% below the 1990 levels by 2050, with per capita carbon dioxide emissions reduced to less than 1.3 tonnes per year so as to stabilise the increase in global temperatures at +2ºC.
A second objective is to show that this is even possible with the global phasing out of nuclear energy.

The energy [r]evolution scenario is therefore characterised by significant efforts to exploit the large potential for energy efficiency; at the same time it shows that implementing cost-effective, abundant renewable energy sources will make an energy [r]evolution possible and undeniable.
