"European Energy Atlas 2018” published

Heinrich Boell Foundation

German Green Party think tank the Heinrich Boell Foundation has published its European Energy Atlas 2018, detailing the state of Europe’s energy transition. Among the topics covered are the role renewables play in job creation, as well as the participation of citizens in renewable energy generation. The renewables sector has created more than a million jobs in Europe, mainly in wind, solar and biomass, according the report. By 2050, 125 million private citizens will be able to participate directly in European wind and solar energy production, it says.
