Net Zero by 2050 A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector

The energy sector is the source of around three‐quarters of greenhouse gas emissions  today and holds the key to averting the worst effects of climate change, perhaps the  greatest challenge humankind has faced. Reducing global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to  net zero by 2050 is consistent with efforts to limit the long‐term increase in average global  temperatures to 1.5 °C. This calls for nothing less than a complete transformation of how we  produce, transport and consume energy. The growing political consensus on reaching net  zero is cause for considerable optimism about the progress the world can make, but the  changes required to reach net‐zero emissions globally by 2050 are poorly understood. A huge  amount of work is needed to turn today’s impressive ambitions into reality, especially given  the range of different situations among countries and their differing capacities to make the  necessary changes. This special IEA report sets out a pathway for achieving this goal, resulting  in a clean and resilient energy system that would bring major benefits for human prosperity  and well‐being.  For more detail informtion, click on the PDF attachment on the right side  to get you direct to the PDF Attachment for the NetZeroby 2050 pdf documents.
