Today wind energy is 16 per cent of Europe’s electricity. According to the European Commission’s Green Deal vision of climate neutrality by 2050, wind energy will become the building block of Europe’s future energy system. Over the next 30 years this energy system is going to undergo fundamental changes. Renewables-based electrification of sectors and applications that today rely on fossil fuels will increase the demand for wind energy. The presentation will provide an outlook on future volumes, the energy system in 2050 and the obstacles on the way to large-scale electrification of Europe’s economies.
