|Alternative Title(s):||Renewable Revolution: Low-Carbon Energy by 2030|
|Description:||This Worldwatch report �examines the potential for renewable energy to provide needed energy services for all societies while lowering heat trapping emissions of greenhouse gases. It concludes that it is not only possible but also essential to effect a massive transformation of the global energy system from its current fossil fuel base between now and 2030 that continues for the rest of the century.�
Recommended strategies for achieving the transition are: putting a price on carbon that increases over time; enacting policies that overcome institutional and regulatory barriers to renewable energy and developing a strategy for phasing out existing inefficient carbon emitting capital stock.
The report concludes that this transition to a highly efficient economy utilizing renewable energy is essential for both developed and developing countries.
