We’re not doomed. With every new climate movement, new cleantech startup or new scientific publication, our voice gets stronger. A recently released years-long research project simulates a global pathway towards 100% renewables across all energy sectors, bearing a clear and powerful message: a global energy transition, which is at the core of real climate action, is not only technically feasible but also cheaper than our current energy system. The open-access study Global Energy System based on 100% Renewable Energy was published by Berlin-based climate network Energy Watch Group (EWG) and Finnish LUT University. Scientific coordinator Prof. Dr. Christian Breyer (CB) of LUT and Hans-Josef Fell (HJF), EWG, were the two driving forces behind this mammoth project. We spoke about their motivation, the hardship of environmental research, hopes for the future and reasons to stay optimistic.
