    MIT | Energy Choices: Pathways to Decarbonization

    Workshop Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    To meet the Paris Climate Agreement goal of keeping global climate change below 2 degrees Celsius, the world needs to rapidly reduce carbon emissions and scale up low-carbon technologies. Decision-makers looking to lower greenhouse gas emissions must choose from many technology and policy options. In this session, Dr. Paltsev will discuss this array of technology and policy options, as well as the economic and climate impacts of energy decisions in different regions of the world.
