Decarbonising - Climate Change Mitigation

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that developed countries need to cut emissions by 80 - 95% by 2050 to ensure a 50/50 chance of keeping global warming below 2°C. Research work In ERI is focusing on developing solutions and technologies for rapidly decarbonising our economy. The main economic sectors are taken into account include energy, transport, buildings, industry, agriculture, forestry and waste management. The costs, benefits and opportunities of the different approaches to mitigation are considered.
