Transforming our energy systems the right way
To realise our beautiful goal of a European power sector free of fossil fuels by 2035 we need to act at a speed and scale as yet unseen in Europe. There are many reasons to believe we will succeed.Click here
To a renewable future
Our vision is of a fair and sustainable, renewables-based European electricity sector that is predominantly powered by wind and solar energy, and free of fossil fuels by 2035. It will supply a nature-friendly energy system that minimises waste, and maximises efficiency through the electrification of heating, industry and transport, the insulation of buildings and the delivery of power via smart technology, providing permanently clean and affordable energy for generations to come.

A power system that works for everyone
This system-wide transformation should be ambitious and fair, protecting people, communities and nature, and result in the dismantling of the fossil fuel industry that drives up costs, fuels armed conflicts, damages our health, undermines democracies, and is responsible for environmental destruction and worsening climate change.
Beyond Fossil Fuels supports and coordinates work with civil society groups working across the European continent, including the European Union, the Western Balkans, Turkey, the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Moldova and Ukraine. Our partners have already had a lot of success moving Europe beyond coal, but there is a lot more to do to speed the transition to a fossil-free, renewables-based European power system by 2035. Together, we have the power to bring this better future forward.
