The opportunity exists to power Europe and North Africa exclusively by renewable electricity by 2050, if this is supported by a single European power market united with a similar market in North Africa

This is the view expressed in a study by international energy and climate experts from PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in collaboration with researchers of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the European Climate Forum (ECF). The research partners have formulated the first policy roadmap towards a 2050 goal of achieving a 100 per cent renewable power sector in Europe and North Africa - finding that a transformation of the power sector based on 100 per cent renewables would address energy security and supply concerns while decarbonising electricity generation and at the same time contribute to a substantial reduction in energy poverty.
