The Role of the Power Sector on the Path to Global Carbon Neutrality by 2050
An Online Technical Webinar
Wednesday 8th December 2021 | 12.30 to 13:30
IEA Analysis shows that the power sector will need to be the first to decarbonise in order to achieve economy-wide net zero by 2050. As part of this transition, electrification and energy security will become increasingly interlinked, all while maintaining affordability. The presentation will cover issues like flexibility, market design, sector integration and new approaches to ensure stability, which will be key to ensure a successful transition.
