Since the first COP, the share of fossil fuels in the global electricity generation mix has remained almost unchanged, supplying just over 60% of the world’s electricity needs. Worse still, global electricity demand has continued to rise, meaning the amount of fossil fuel generation, and the greenhouse gas emissions that have resulted from that generation, have increased.

To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement will require the full decarbonization of the global electricity generation sector by 2050. No one generation option will be able to deliver this, it will require a broad range of different low-carbon, clean energy technologies. In this event, panelists discussed how the full range of clean energy options can work together to achieve net-zero.
