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.
