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
in 20 to 40
years, starting from 2010.
The scenarios developed in the last years, show that the transition
is even possible earlier than 2050, e.g. by 2040 in the EU and by

trends for development in energy service demand, energy efficiency,
and development of renewable energy, it is possible to make possible
future energy balances, following the Vision2050. The tool also calculates
