It’s one of the thorniest issues in the shift to low carbon economies – what happens to those whose lives, livelihoods and communities are left behind as we move away from fossil fuels. The WRI’s new podcast explores the issue.
How to decarbonize the grid and electrify everything
“The good news is it’s now clearly cheaper to save the planet than to ruin it,” says engineer and investor John Doerr. “The bad news is: we are fast running out of time.” In this conversation with climate policy expert Hal Harvey, the two sustainability leaders discuss why humanity has to act globally, at speed and at scale, to meet the staggering challenge of decarbonizing the global economy (which has only ever increased emissions throughout history) — and share helpful examples of promising energy solutions from around the world.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference.
Affordable energy organisation, Power for All explains why Decentralised Renewable Energy (DRE) solutions such as solar can help countries expand access to on-site clean, sufficient, affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy.
For the first time, wind and solar generated more than 10% of electricity globally in 2021, according to latest data.
