The Club of Rome EU-Chapter (Brussels) and the European Support Centre of the Club of Rome (Vienna) are pleased to invite you to the 57th Aurelio Peccei Lecture at the The Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium of Sciences and Arts:
General Director at the German Federal Environment Agency
The objective of the outlook is to present an alternative and more realistic view of the chances of the future uses of renewable energies in the global energy supply.
The scenarios in the outlook are based on the analysis of the development and market penetration of renewable energy technologies in different regions in the last few decades. The scenarios address the question of how fast renewable technologies might be implemented on a worldwide scale and project the costs this would incur. Many factors, such as technology costs and cost reduction ratios, investments and varying economic conditions in the world’s regions, available potentials, and characteristics of growth have been incorporated in order to fulfil this task.
