White book

The move towards a more secure and low carbon energy system requires the development of technologies, products and processes that reduce the carbon emissions from energy production and use. We need to harness cleaner sources of energy, such as wind, solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal and find ways to reduce the carbon footprint of fossil fuels, especially through more efficient production and use. We also need skilled people to develop, install and operate these technologies. Without these developments we will be unable to meet the world’s carbon reduction goals and we will have fewer sources of energy to rely upon within our energy mix.

EUROGIA2020 is dedicated to promoting and facilitating the development of such new technologies.

This White Book describes the EUROGIA2020 global vision and the programme overview (Part 1), before giving examples of the various technology challenges to be addressed (Part 2 – Technology Roadmap).
