EU ENERGY TRANSPORT AND GHG EMISSIONS -TRENDS TO 2050

This publication was prepared for the Directorate-General for Energy, the Directorate-General for Climate Action and the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport by the E3M-Lab of the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems at the National Technical University of Athens (ICCS-NTUA), Greece, in cooperation with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and EuroCARE and represents those organisations’ views on energy, transport and GHG emissions facts, figures and projections.

The purpose of this publication is to present the new "EU Reference Scenario 2016" ("Reference Scenario"). This report is an update of the previous Reference Scenario published in 2013. It focuses on the EU energy system, transport and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission developments, including specific sections on emission trends not related to energy, and on the various interactions among policies in these sectors. Its time horizon as in the 2013 version is up to 2050 and it includes all EU28 Member States individually. The Reference Scenario acts as a benchmark of current policy and market trends. As such, it can help to inform future policy debate and policy making.
