More than two hundred entities across Europe – as well as political representatives including thirty Members of the European Parliament – have met in various European Union capitals to present a declaration calling for a 100% renewable target by 2050 for European energy policy.

The signatories of
the manifesto include diverse institutions such as industry associations,
professionals, academics, trade unions, and environmental organizations, as
well as companies operating not just in the energy sector. Between them they
employ around half a million workers.

“Confronted not
only with an economic downturn, but in particular with the challenges posed by
climate change, an increasing fuel import dependency and rising fossil fuel
prices, Europe urgently needs to develop solutions for a future sustainable
energy system entirely based on renewable energy sources”, says the
declaration, which has been presented as the European Union reviews its own
objective for Europe’s energy future to 2050.

The signatories of
the declaration call on Europe to lead by example. “The answers to today’s
challenges do not lie beyond our reach – they lie in the palm of our hands. By
promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies, we will be able
to tackle both security of energy supply and climate change, while at the same
time creating a future-oriented sustainable economy with high-quality green
jobs,” they say.

The wide range of
parliamentary supporters are confirming their commitment to “promoting an
economy based on energy efficiency and renewable energy for green jobs;
promoting economic development and energy independence; and curbing climate
change”.

The signatories
are urging European leaders to act quickly and make this 2050 vision become a
reality for the benefit of all EU citizens.
