The discussions included ideas, technologies and short term actions that will be required to change the global energy map and limit the increase in global temperatures to no more than 2 degrees Celsius. This is a fairly complex situation as there is a need to examine development methods of low-carbon energy sources and that may eliminate some of the fossil fuel investments that some countries and governments have made.
The generation of electricity and heat combined with transport is responsible for almost two thirds of the energy related CO2 emissions globally. It’s therefore crucial to make progress in a meaningful way when discussing climate change. The sessions concluded that emission in its core scenario are consistent with a longer term goal for an average global temperature increase of 3.6 degrees Celsius, however, to limit the warming to 2 degrees is now recognized as a more difficult, challenging and costly process as each year passes without action.
