Decarbonisation Scenarios leading to the EU Energy Roadmap 2050

Information for Policy Makers 1 - SEFEP working paper 2012

This paper presents the results of an in‐depth analysis and a comparison of six mitigation scenarios from three important scenario studies released since 2009 by Greenpeace, EURELECTRIC and the European Climate Foundation (ECF) respectively. A decomposition method is applied to show the extent to which technologies and strategies contribute to CO2 emission reductions in the individual scenarios.
