A reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 in most European metropolitan areas is achievable. It is conceivable and feasible that many European metropolitan areas can become largely self sufficient in renewable energy well before 2050 thus enabling the EU to meet its current objective of a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of 80-95%, which is effective decarbonisation.
Planning for Energy uses reMAC a planning tool developed by METREX to enable planners at the metropolitan level to:
Explore their future energy needs.
Consider the scope for the reduction of waste energy and energy consumption.
Assess their metropolitan renewable energy generation capacity and, in consequence.
Reveal their potential for renewable energy self sufficiency.
