The book summarizes the results of the first Europe-wide Delphi study on future developments in the energy sector.
With a time horizon of 2030. this expert survey not only provides a useful perspective on long-term developments of energy technologies. but also evaluates these technologies against different sets of social values or `visions`.
In the comprehensive analysis following the Delphi survey itself. special attention was given to faithfully translating the trends and needs identified by the survey participants into recommendations for R&.D and energy policies.
In this respect the EurEnDel findings provide a twofold contribution to the analysis of Europe`s energy policies:
– They corroborate the conflicting attitudes and paradigms prevalent among energy experts. with valuable new dimensions for the on going energy debate.- They offer genuine new insight on energy issues. with added value for decision makers.
