Report of the Week: Efficiency the Amazing New High Tech Solution to Climate Change!
The key findings are:
- Efficiency can stabilise energy consumption up to 2030.
- Under these circumstances ever greater penertration of renewable energy can lead to significant decarbonisation and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
In qauntitative terms, emissions reductions from the energy system of 40% by 2030 are shown to be entirely feasible. The research finds that savings in MtC per year by 2030 could feasibly come from:
Energy efficiency 688MtC 57% of savings.
All generation technologies 512MtC 43% of savings.
- Concentrating solar power 63MtC
- Photovoltaics 63MtC
- Wind 181MtC
- Biofuels 58MtC
- Biomass 75MtC
- Geothermal 83MtC
