Our current linear economic system is not sustainable, having negative effects for our planet. An idea exemplified by the uncontrolled release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, altering climate stability with vast environmental, societal and economic consequences.

Over the past year, the SUNRISE community has worked towards the development of a consolidated vision of a circular solar-driven economy for 2050. This is how the SUNRISE technological roadmap to a clean-energy EU was created, as the result of the integrated knowledge of a broad group of scientists across Europe.

Now, the SUNRISE team has come up with a two-page infographic in order to illustrate the current challenges towards a fossil-free economy by 2050, and the solutions to enable the transition to a circular economy powered by sunlight through the sustainable production of fuels and chemicals.
