Part IV - Energy Transition

Lingua Italiano
Finalità

The energy transition is a pathway toward transformation of the global energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon by 2050. At its heart is the need to reduce energy-related CO2 emissions to limit climate change. Decarbonisation of the energy sector requires urgent action on a global scale, and while a global energy transition is underway, further action is needed to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. Renewable energy and energy efficiency measures can potentially achieve 90% of the required carbon reductions. The energy transition will be enabled by information technology, smart technology, policy frameworks and market instruments.

The module gives a general overview about this key process, with a focus on sustainability in the energy sector. A lesson will be specifically devoted to Africa and its energy “leapfrogging” that could lead to a great development. The case of an energy company is evoked to give a concrete example of the strategies applied to business models to comply with the global goals.
