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?
COVID-19 caused one of the biggest shocks to energy demand in history. What effect will it have on achieving international goals for limiting the impact of climate change?
Gas demand has proved resilient despite the impact of coronavirus. But will this resilience hold in the longer term?
There’s a green arms race underway, with companies positioning to be seen as part of the solution to climate change rather than the problem.
What are the long-term implications of the low price of oil? Could diversification into clean energies ensure the long-term survival of oil and gas companies?
Green hydrogen has grabbed the limelight in the drive to decarbonize. But is there a role for natural gas in a post-coronavirus Europe?
Green hydrogen—with three times the energy content of fossil fuels—could be critical in decarbonizing the global economy. But there are challenges to overcome.
