Sustainable Energy Visions
- Visions for a Renewable Energy World

INFORSE Vision 2050 BrochureINFORSE has developed the "Vision2050" scenario models for global, regional and national scales for the period 2000 - 2050. With these models, the scenarios show how we can move towards supplying 100% of our energy needs for renewable sources in 20 to 40 years, starting from 2010.

How Can NGOs Use Sustainable Energy Visions, Scenarios and Plans
Since the 1970's NGOs have made alternative energy plans and visions, and have found that they are able to improve their work and be better accepted in the society, when they have well prepared plans and visions that support their proposals.

Developing National Visions
INFORSE-Europe has developed a serial of spread sheets that can be used to make energy balances decade by decade, illustrating a possible development 2000-2050. With inputs in the form of a current energy balance and trends for development in energy service demand, energy efficiency, fuel shift and development of renewable energy, it is possible to make possible future energy balances, following the Vision2050. The tool also calculates CO2 emissions.

The tool is available free to INFORSE members and cooperating European networks. If you are interested in more information about the tool, and eventually to use it, please contact INFORSE-Europe by email to ove@inforse.org.

INFORSE has also compiled Planning Tools to be used in conjunction with establishing Vision 2050 models, including a guideline for assessment of renewable energy potentials, employment etc.

INFORSE has been involved in the development of a wind power strategy for EU. This is one of the inputs for the European Vision 2050. Read more: wind strategy and campaign.
