First, individual systems based on solar, wind, biofuel, and food production are considered. Simulations are performed with constraints of internal consistency, for local, regional, and global energy systems. Detailed scenario simulations are made for Europe, North America, and South-East Asia, where all regions are shown to allow a 100% renewable energy system. ...
