What would be required in order to put the world on a pathway to limit temperature rise? What would be the implications for fuel types, technology needs and pricing? How can this be accomplished while providing energy to a growing population?
IHS Markit has constructed two Low Emissions Cases to 2050 that meet the Paris climate agreement goal of keeping global mean surface temperature rise to 2°C or less above pre-industrial levels by 2100.
These differentiated pathways include the expectation of emissions “overshoot” for some period and reflect significant regional differences in the pace of change. Each of the cases employs a different mix of technologies, pricing mechanisms, renewables, and non-energy measures.
In this webinar you will be introduced to the Low Emissions Cases process, some of the key assumptions and outcomes, and how they compare with IHS Markit's integrated planning scenarios.
We will discuss key questions like:
