Stephane Bilodeau's insight:

New study quantifies the effects of climate change in Europe 

JOINT RESEARCH CENTRE The European Commission's in-house science service

The study weighs the bleak consequences of inaction. Scientists considered what would happen if the politicians and players on the continent worked with international partners to constrain global warming to a 2°C rise, or alternatively took no action and allowed global temperatures to soar to 3.5°C. They analysed the impact of climate change in agriculture, river floods, coasts, tourism, energy, droughts, forest fires, transport infrastructure and human health.

Renewable Energy + Clean Power in Europe [Infographic]

Renewable Energy + Clean Power in Europe [Infographic] | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Germany has become more than just a leader in standard renewable energy uptake; it is making a play for commercial leadership and technological primacy in the increasingly competitive global renewable energy business.

Companies understand their customers want to see more renewable energy in action, and German regulators understand that they need to find ways to put more renewable energy, including wind power, onto the grid to replace planned coal and nuclear power plant retirements.

In the continental context, the EU is preparing to release its latest communication on an integrated energy market ahead of a goal of operational integration it has set for 2014.
