(120c) Energy Decarbonisation Scenarios
Using different scenarios for energy demand and supply, options for energy sector decarbonisation are evaluated. Meeting the 2-degree target requires a major transformation in the power sector, efficiency improvements â specially in the buildings and in the industry, and a revolution in transport towards fuel and modal shifts. With a significant increase in renewable energy, system integration and optimization will also be key in reducing the cost of the energy transition. Meeting more ambitious climate goals (âwell below 2 degreesâ) will push further the technological innovation and implementation requirements throughout the entire energy value chain. A scenario aiming at zero net-emissions by 2060 is presented, along with a comparison to the 2-degree case.
