A study shows a transition to 100% clean, renewable energies is highly realistic – even today, with the technologies currently available.
Christian Breyer, Professor for Solar Economy at LUT University, Finland and Hans-Josef Fell, President of the Energy Watch Group, present on their latest joint publication, the study on Global Energy Systems based on 100% Renewable Energy.The study, published April 2019, is the first of its kind to outline a 1.5°C scenario with a cost-effective, cross-sectoral, technology-rich global 100% renewable energy system that does not build on negative CO2 emission technologies.
Webinar is available to members of The International Solar Energy Society (ISES).
Written by the “Climate News Network,” this article provides a synopsis of 47 peer-reviewed research papers by 91 different authors that agree that renewable energy can meet the world’s energy needs by the middle of this century. Not only is it possible to power the world through wind, solar, and water, but this article also discusses the 28.6 million long-term, full-time jobs that will be created through the switch to renewable energies. The article also provides links to various research papers and resources for further reading.
The 2050 Calculator allows users to create their own emissions reduction pathway, using scientific data to see the impacts. The Calculator is available in three versions to allow a range of audiences to explore how to best meet energy needs while reducing emissions: a simplified overview, a more detailed look at the issues, or a full Excel version for experts who want to look at the underpinning model.
While designed for the UK, the Energy Department there is now working with teams around the world to help them develop their own calculators, and is also building a Global Calculator to look at ways to reduce emissions worldwide.
These climate-focused civic engagement opportunities can be built into higher education curricula through a wide variety of course topics and academic areas.
This case study reports on the micro-credential framework being developed in order to create competency-based skills validation that can be more responsive to rapidly changing industry needs and cross-over skills required between allied industries. This will bring a new credentialing option to certified energy auditors in the U.S. who want to expand their home health assessment expertise and offer more comprehensive services in the residential sector.
These plans detail the Defense Department’s goals to mitigate operational risks posed by climate change effects such as: flooding, surging sea levels, severe weather and extreme temperatures. Managing the unavoidable effects and preparing for the possible ones will reduce risks to our national security.
Busting the myths about the affordability of solar energy, this real-life example shows how policy can make solar energy affordable to all building owners, with utility bill savings paying for the solar. Georgia’s Solar Power Free-Market Financing Act of 2015 allows wide access to solar power as well as cost-effective implementation.
This organization involves social movements, environmental and development NGOs, trade unions, faith and other civil society groups to assess the climate commitments that have been put on the table through the UN climate negotiations. Their goal is to identify which countries are offering to do their fair share, which need to do more, and present recommendations on how to close the emissions gap.
This report is a clean energy jobs analysis providing detailed breakdowns of clean energy jobs not available previously. According to the findings, energy efficiency is by far the nation’s largest clean energy sector, employing 3.3 million Americans, up from 2.5 million in 2016. The country’s clean energy jobs market is huge and will continues to create more jobs which could be accelerated through stronger energy policies.
