Energy Transition:
Slowing Global Warming to 2 Degrees

At the present rate, the world could be 3 degrees warmer by 2030. But the Paris Agreement, a global environmental accord addressing climate change, aims to keep a global temperature rise well below 2 degrees.

To achieve this enormous task, the world must combine coronavirus recovery efforts with massive investments in renewable energy and clean infrastructure. Will the increase in electric vehicles and renewables be enough? Will Big Oil reinvent itself to survive? And what promises do technologies like carbon capture, use and storage, and green hydrogen hold? 

Discover what Verisk’s experts say about global energy demand, the future of the energy transition, and the technology that will shape it
