EU Energy Innovation Policy Towards 2050

Edited by: Leonardo Meeus, Jean-Michel Glachant, Nicole Ahner

What is the European energy strategy for 2050? How different is it from the 2020 energy strategy? What are the technology options? What are the policy options? This volume discusses the European "2050 Energy Roadmap to a Low Carbon Economy: Energy Policy & Innovation." The book represents the outcome of the Third Academic Roundtable of the Loyola de Palacio Chair at the European University Institute, held in Florence in May 2011. It introduces the most recent thinking regarding the European transition towards a low carbon future. The views presented include those of experts of the European Commission, major industry players, and prominent academics. Along with academic articles, speeches, and opinions, the book contains reports of the Think Tank of DG Energy hosted in Florence. "This book is extremely well written and....should help readers to formulate realistic scenarios for an energy future." Dr. James G.
