“Reaching Zero with Renewables: Capturing carbon”

IRENA’s World Energy Transitions Outlook: 1.5°C pathway foresees that 90% of the solutions to bring us to net-zero by 2050 involve renewable energy through direct supply of renewables, electrification, energy efficiency, green hydrogen, and bioenergy combined with carbon capture and storage. Only in residual use of fossil fuels and some industrial processes, such as cement, chemicals and iron and steel, decarbonisation efforts may require CCS and CO2 removal technologies and measures. This webinar will share key takeaways from the recent IRENA report Reaching Zero With Renewables: Capturing Carbon on the status and potential of carbon capture and storage (CCS), carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies and their roles alongside renewables in the deep decarbonisation of energy systems in the context of global pathways to net-zero emissions.
