The Vision Scenario for the European Union: 2011 Update for the EU-27 -- Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament

his Report by the Oko Institute finds that global climate change, finite fossil and nuclear resources and the vulnerability of economies and consumers to increasing and volatile prices of fossil energies are the challenges which will determine energy and climate policies for the next decades.

The Vision Scenario represents a pathway which consistently combines short- and medium-term objectives with the long-term objectives. Furthermore it is in line with the greenhouse gas emission budget, which could allow the increase of the global mean temperature to be kept to a level below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels.

This would require reducing EU greenhouse gas emission by 95%
