A future beyond coal in Europe - An interview with Greens/EFA co-president Ska Keller

The Greens/EFA group have been running a fair transition campaign since the end of last year. The end of coal is a reality, mainly for economic reasons. Investing in this type of energy source does simply not make any sense anymore. The phasing out of coal is therefore already happening. For the Green political group, what is now fundamental is to ensure that the miners - the most concerned of all groups - are placed at the core of the transition. We are now questioning the Greens/EFA co-President on how a future beyond coal in Europe is possible, how we can get there and how we can make sure that the miners are consulted, but also empowered as much as possible.

The Vision Scenario for the European Union (2017)

The Green/EFA group is the first political family in the European Parliament to have a concrete, scientifically-based and transparent roadmap to ensure the EU respects its commitments under the Paris Agreement to reduce its carbon emissions, and limit global warming to well below 2 degrees. This roadmap - based on the carbon budget approach - is an important tool to negotiate the EU's energy and climate bills for 2030 but also to have a clear vision of how our economy and world look like by 2050, if we are to limit the most serious effects of climate change.

A Completely Renewable Future: Communication Toolkit

This briefing provides a set of words, phrases, narratives and short paragraphs that can be used to put a convincing and engaging case that “100% renewables” and “zero carbon” are feasible in Europe by 2050. The language is designed to appeal to Greens but also reach across the political centre ground, including social democrats, centrists and the centre right. People with these political perspectives may be convinced climate change is a threat, but still doubt the economy could be run without fossil fuels and nuclear.
