NREL Visitor Center Power Lunch
Renewable Energy Futures to 2050: Current Perspectives
Presented by Dr. Eric Martinot, Author, REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report
The future of renewable energy is fundamentally a choice, not a foregone conclusion given technology and economic trends. The new REN21 Renewables Global Futures Report illuminates that choice by showing the range of credible possibilities for the future of renewable energy. The report is not one scenario or viewpoint, but a synthesis of the contemporary thinking of many, as compiled from 170 interviews with leading experts from around the world, including CEOs and parliamentarians, and from 50 recently published energy scenarios by a range of organizations.
