1.5.1 What does the energy transition look like?
In final video for this module we are going to be looking at specific emission reduction scenarios that could be applied to meet the requirements of the Paris Climate Agreement. We will be looking into the differences between alternate reduction scenarios, and what these would mean in reality. From this analysis we can gain an understanding of what changes are needed for the energy transition, and what the key elements of climate mitigation strategies are.
- The key components of emission reduction scenarios include energy emission reductions, land use change and the technical removal of CO2
- The IPCC has outlined four illustrative emission reduction pathways which give insights into how reduction targets could be met
- The critical elements of the energy transition include efficiency improvements, electrification and the adoption of renewable energy sources
