Renewable Energy and the EU Sustainable energy management system: a path to reshape economies of the future

We are living times of the so-called ‘energy transition’ generally defined by the World Energy Council (2014) as a long-term structural change in energy systems. Transition means change, but also means an on-going process and societies can shape this change path by making well-informed decisions on essential components like the energy matrix. It is not a matter of replacing fossil fuels or positioning renewable energy versus fossil fuels. It is much more than that.
