Roadmap 2050

In July 2009, the leaders of the European Union and the G8 announced an objective to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% below 1990 levels by 2050. In October 2009 the European Council set the appropriate abatement objective for Europe and other developed economies at 80-95% below 1990 levels by 2050.

In support of this objective, the European Climate Foundation (ECF) initiated a study to establish a fact base behind this goal and derive the implications for European industry, particularly in the electricity sector. The result is Roadmap 2050: a practical guide to a prosperous, low-carbon Europe , a discussion of the feasibility and challenges of realizing an 80% GHG reduction objective for Europe, including urgent policy imperatives over the coming five years. The scientific basis and the political process behind the setting of that objective are not discussed.

The Roadmap 2050 project is an initiative of the European Climate Foundation (ECF) in cooperation with a consortium of experts funded by the ECF and has developed over the years in different phases. In addition, ECF involved a wide range of companies, consultancy firms, research centres and NGOs that have provided various forms of assistance during the different phases of ECF's Roadmap 2050 project.

Another project by the name Power Perspectives 2030, builds on the widely referenced Roadmap 2050. This report provides an analysis of the next steps required in the development of the European power sector by 2030 in order to remain on track to full decarbonisation by 2050.

From Roadmaps to Reality describes how the current EU energy framework can be improved to support the power sector towards full decarbonisation, in line with the Energy 2050 Roadmap analysis. The report is developed by a consortium of authors from ECF, E3G, RAP and ClientEarth in consultation with a large group of business, NGO and academic stakeholders.
