Europe is coming from a past with fossil fuel driven, environmentally harmful and monopolized energy supply and is heading towards a future of a democratic, decentralized and climate-friendly energy system.

At this important moment in the energy transition expert authors bring together facts and figures that shine a light on how and where the transition is progressing, which forces are pushing it forward and what is slowing it down.

By when can we make a 100% renewable energy system a reality?  How many jobs are there in the new renewable economy? Which countries have achieved the most in the last years? What are the remaining challenges on the road to achieving an interconnected, democratic and socially just energy system that could turn the EU in a global leader in green innovations?

The publication is a cooperation project between the Heinrich Böll Foundation, Friends of the Earth Europe, the European Renewable Energies Federation and the Green European Foundation.  The energy atlas will be an additional publication in the very popular series that has included the Meat Atlas, the Coal Atlas and the Agrifood atlas.

The Atlas is published at a crucial point in time when the EU is finalizing its next generation of energy legislation. The targets and regulations agreed in the Clean Energy Package will shape Europe’s energy landscape for the next decade – the last critical chance to avoid catastrophic climate change and enhance citizen energy!
