To keep the rise in temperatures below the 1.5°C threshold, carbon dioxide emissions globally would have to be cut by 45% by 2030 and be down to net-zero by 2050, concluded the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2018. But the world is way off target.
Last year, global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose 1.7% to a historic high of 33.1 gigatonnes, estimates the International Energy Agency.
To reverse this trend as quickly as possible, those working in the energy sector — from engineers to law makers, from investors to lobbyists — need to have access to the right information.
REEEP is a strong supporter of organisations working towards the energy transition, and is therefore proud to announce a network partnership with leading Danish publication, FORESIGHT Climate & Energy. Their team of expert journalists works to cut through the noise and analyse the best and most timely ways of transforming society and the economy away from oil, coal, and natural gas to wind, solar, and hydrogen power and increased efficiency. Furthermore, they examine the potential solutions and barriers to the move to a clean energy economy through clear in-depth articles enlivened by infographics, photographs, and illustrations.
REEEP agrees that facts and figures, well written in-depth analysis, expert opinions, and pertinent images are imperative to adapt to the already unavoidable impacts of climate change, and we fully support FORESIGHT’s input in the transition to a cleaner, greener, more sustainable future.
