Rapid decarbonisation and its impact on society

The need for rapid decarbonization

 

The Paris Agreement aims to limit global temperature rises caused by man-made climate change, but many say that the 2C target does not go far enough. Climate efforts need to be much more ambitious to curb temperature rises and limit the impact of carbon emissions on future generations.

An emerging area of research is rapid decarbonisation, focused on accelerating efforts beyond the baseline Paris target to limit the temperature rise to 1.5°C and so avert climate disaster.

In this special one-day event, IEEE Switzerland PES will investigate the latest positive technological and political developments and outline concrete steps for rapid decarbonisation. By assembling a range of experts we will consider policy, economic, financial and technical perspectives of rapid decarbonisation, and investigate business models that could emerge.
