Energy supply in change: The energy mix in 2030 and 2050 and its transition

This panel session investigates possible energy futures and have an open debate on open options of the future energy supply.

Recent abrupt changes such as appearance of shale gas, the various sprints in regional RES development, nuclear opinion in Europe (including Fukushima) and energy policy have indicated that predicting the energy future is  more unpredictable than ever. Nevertheless, the energy mix is a  determining influence on the sustainability and cost-effectiveness of that future system, and in turn how security of supply is going to achieved. A key question is to determine how this transition can be achieved in terms of required support schemes and infrastructure.
