Abstract:
This policy brief, by the Policy Studies Unit of the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), aims to instigate a debate on the broader enabling conditions required to move renewable energy from marginal shares in the European energy system to a mainstream role. It does so by posing seven key questions related to public movement, the political-industrial complex, resources and sustainability, grids and markets, finance, legal procedures and overall policy. These questions require short to medium term attention to keep a long-term renewable energy system within the realm of possibilities. This policy brief also provides ECN’s initial reflections on how these key questions could be addressed, and indicates which relevant expertise it can bring to the table.
