Press Conference and Energy Report on the Question What Will the Global Energy Supply of the Future be Like? Can the Climate Still be Protected in the Face of Economic Recession?

    -   Global Report Launch: Energy (R)evolution: Global Sustainable Energy

    BERLIN, Germany, Oct. 21 /CNW/ -

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Gigantic sums of money have evaporated completely in the past few weeks
of global financial crisis. Meanwhile a much more urgent problem has for a
short time receded into the background. Climate change threatens not only the
financial sector but the whole of mankind. We want to show you what positive
effects consistent action to protect the climate can also have for the
economy. The report presented at this press conference, energy (r)evolution - 
A Sustainable Global Energy Outlook - contains a detailed analysis of the
global potential in energy efficiency and of the transport sector, together
with an analysis of global and regional developments in costs in the
electricity sphere until 2030.
    Acting on behalf of Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council,
scientists at the German Aerospace Research Centre and Dutch energy institute,
Ecofys, have examined what the alternatives are for supplying energy in
industrialised countries and the up-and-coming developing countries of China
and India, and when the further expansion of coal-fired power plants in these
countries can be stopped. A new political instrument for supporting renewable
energy in developing countries will be presented.

    Copies of the new 210 page report with one global and 10 regional energy
    scenarios, an executive summary will be online on October 27th, 2008,
    10 AM CET under:
