ABSTRACT
The article presents the energy sources by 2050. It makes reference to the report, Ecofys energy scenario, which considers that in that future, fossil fuels, nuclear power and traditional biomass fuels have totally been replaced by a mixture of renewable energy sources. It contends that though there could be varying factors in the development of renewable energy sources, the overall mix will still come from 100 percent renewable, sustainable energy.
