A report from the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project got me thinking about the rural development potential of transforming the energy sector.
The report outlines pathways to reduce carbon pollution between now and 2050. The goal is to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. Meeting the benchmark is feasible and even affordable with technology already available, according to the report.
Deep decarbonization will require large scale transformation of our energy sector. This transformation is underway, but significant work lays ahead.
