Plenary - More Energy, Lower Emissions: The dual challenge

Monday, March 9

11:40 am - 12:20 pm

Reliable and affordable energy has been a vital tool for increasing economic wellbeing. But combustion of fossil fuels is the primary source of increasing greenhouse gas emissions. We have had some success decarbonizing power generation using increasingly affordable renewables and substituting gas for coal. But progress has been slower in transportation and industry. How, in future, can we sustain economic growth and bring people out of poverty while reducing GHG emissions?
