The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a recent report stipulating that without drastic measures to cut carbon emissions, reduce energy use and remove carbon already in the atmosphere, we are “extremely unlikely” to meet the Paris Agreement goal of keeping global warming below 1.5C. With this new paradigm, it’s quite obvious what the to-do list should be for the production companies and large energy intensive ones.

Companies call for net-zero emissions by 2050 to help transition to low-carbon economy.
Climate change is defining our era. If our behavior doesn’t change, we risk missing the moment when we can avoid the disastrous consequences of climate change, for people and for the natural systems that support us all. We are at a defining moment.

Modelling scenarios for development of the energy system is highly dependent on the assumptions. An essential input to any modelling exercise are assumptions about the development of technologies - both in terms of performance and costs. While these assumptions have been traditionally developed by the modelling consultants, based on a broad and rigorous literature review, the Commission is increasingly seeking a review of these technologies by stakeholders to make them even more robust and representative of the current projects as well as experts’ and stakeholders’ expectations.

The Ninth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development (the Ninth Forum) provides once again the opportunity to reflect on the implications of the fast-paced energy transition that has become the new normal. As technological innovation and decarbonisation pathways cannot do without social innovation and change, the Ninth Forum seeks to discuss lingering and new challenges and agree on ambitious and concrete measures to close the gap between action and ambition.

European Utility Week is your platform for achieving a fully integrated and interconnected electricity system and market in Europe. We host the environment for all key players in the smart energy ecosystem to come together and discuss European strategy to achieve a smooth transition towards a low carbon energy supply.
This is reflected throughout the event from the exhibition, where we work with the most valuable solution providers, to addressing the key business challenges in the Summit programme.

This report starts with an overview of the latest insights from IRENA, with a focus on the role of renewable energy and energy efficiency in the decarbonization of the global energy system by 2050. It pays particular attention to the five largest energy-using countries of the G20, namely the People’s Republic of China, Germany, India, Japan and the United States, but it narrows its focus to 2030.

District heating (DH) systems are key systems for the de-carbonization of heating energy in European Cities. In order to allow for this transition, while guaranteeing competitive energy costs, conversion of DHs is required.
DH operation temperature needs to be reduced in order to increase the performance of renewable systems and operation criteria needs to be adopted for the introduction of weather-dependent, distributed heat sources such as solar systems.

This report by the U.S Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) shows that the United States can help curb climate change and cut its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050 with an ambitious, but realistic, increase in clean energy. This reduction can be achieved relying on four key emission reduction strategies:
