The fortnightly IRENA Insights programme of short, focused webinars showcases key insights from teams across the Agency. Every other week, presenters from one of IRENA’s teams – either alone or together with invited guests – will share key findings from their latest programmatic work, provide focused insights into opportunities, trends, best practices and innovative solutions to address various challenges, signpost further sources of more in-depth information and provide an opportunity to engage with IRENA’s experts through Q&A sessions.

“Climate-safe 1.5°C pathway by 2050: Technology solutions and investment needs”
The recent trends show that the gap between where we are and where we should be to achieve the 1.5°C Paris Agreement goal is not decreasing but widening. IRENA’s preview of its World Energy Transitions Outlook proposes energy transition solutions for the narrow pathway available to contain the rise of temperature to 1.5°C and halt irreversible global warming. Proven technologies for a net-zero energy system already largely exist today. IRENA’s “1.5°C pathway” indicates over 90% of all decarbonisation solutions in 2050 will involve renewable energy through direct supply of low-cost power, efficiency, renewable-powered electrification in end-use as well as green hydrogen. Carbon capture and removal technologies in combination with bioenergy will deliver the ‘last mile’ CO2 reductions towards a net-zero energy system. This webinar will present high-level insights on energy transition technology components and investment needs in setting the world on a trajectory towards a sustainable, resilient and inclusive energy future.
