In the second part of the article "Analysis of energy strategies of EU and world countries and a role of renewables in their energy systems", which was published in the third issue of applied scientific journal "Promyslova teplotekhnika" (Industrial heat engineering) experts of UABio discussed the state of the art and prospects for renewable energy development in the world, the European Union. The article contains analyses of existing energy strategies and forecasts of energy development. Special attention is paid to the countries, which set a target to reach 50% RES in their final energy consumption by 2050. It is shown that in order to achieve this object it is necessary not only to develop RES capacities, but also reduce consumption of primary energy at the expense of introducing energy efficiency measures.
