Renewable Energy

Combined with energy savings, the various renewable energy sources provide the only solution to bringing greenhouse gas emissions from the power and heating sectors to zero in a relatively short timescale.

Besides their CO2 abatement potential, renewable energy sources present numerous additional benefits such as: water, soil and air pollution reduction, energy independency, and reduction of fossil fuels imports.

Furthermore, renewable energy sources provide a unique opportunity for the European economy with the creation of millions of local jobs, bringing economic benefits to rural areas, and providing a framework for the European industry to become a leader in an increasingly important global market that will trigger massive investments in the coming decades.

For all these reasons CAN Europe is committed to supporting and promoting a 100% renewable European energy system by 2050 at the latest.
