Net-zero targets are increasingly mainstreamed in the political agenda around the world. Recent years saw political commitments towards carbon neutrality from various national and regional governments. In the energy sector, fossil fuel use needs to be substantially reduced. Massive electrification of end-uses and synthetic fuels produced with renewable energy is expected to be the energy transition’s backbone. Other direct forms of renewable energy and energy efficiency are also likely to play a vital role.
The International Forum on Long-term Scenarios for the Clean Energy Transition aims to bring together scenario practitioners in government, academia, technical institutions and the private sector to discuss how to strengthen the development and improve energy scenarios to guide the clean energy transition. It is the annual flagship event of IRENA’s LTES Network and Clean Energy Ministerial LTES Initiative.
This virtual event will build on the rich discussions being held through the CEM LTES Initiative and IRENA’s LTES Network.
