IEEE CONFERENCE: TECHNOLOGICAL, POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL STEPS FOR RAPID DECARBONISATION
Join us for a conference in St Gallen on pathways to rapid decarbonisation.
The Paris Agreement aims to limit global temperature rises caused by man-made climate change, but many say that the 2°C target does not go far enough. Climate efforts need to be much more ambitious to curb temperature rises and limit the impact of carbon emissions on future generations.
An emerging area of research is rapid decarbonisation. It accelerates efforts beyond the baseline Paris target to limit the temperature rise to 1.5°C, the level at which climate disaster can be averted.
In this special one-day event, IEEE Switzerland Power and Energy Society will investigate the latest positive technological and political developments and outline concrete steps for rapid decarbonisation. By assembling a range of experts we will consider policy, economic, financial and technical perspectives of rapid decarbonisation, and investigate business models that could emerge.
- Date: 7 November 2019
