The global energy report drawn up on behalf of Greenpeace International and the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC) by the DLR Institute of Technical Thermodynamics in cooperation with over 30 other scientists and institutes shows that global CO2 emissions can be reduced from 30 billion tonnes per year today to about ten billion tonnes per year by 2050.

This drastic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is necessary to ensure that the rise in the global average temperature relative to the pre-industrial level does not exceed two degrees Celsius.
