ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the possibility of fully powering Europe and North Africa with renewable energy by 2050. The author reports that a European think tank will be releasing a study claiming that renewable electricity generation capacity grew by 30 percent in the region in 2010. He states that the report comes right after the International Energy Agency (IEA) has revealed that carbon dioxide emissions rose in 2010. He claims that these developments pose challenges to engineers and mechanics.
