The power sector of the EU 2016: Where are we coming from? Where do we stand today? The London-based thinktank Sandbag and Agora Energiewende joined forces and present the state of affairs in the European power sector: Key topics include power generation, power consumption, CO2 emissions and prices. Overall, it is clear that the current power system is not yet fully equipped to deal with the main challenges ahead: securing power supply at a reasonable price with as little emissions as possible. However, Europe is on the right path: almost 30 percent of the electricity produced already comes from renewable energy sources.
