Climate Action Tracker – Pulling the plug on fossils in power

Date: Tuesday 19 September
Time: 10:00 EDT / 16:00 CEST

While growth in installed renewable energy capacity has accelerated, there is still a long way to go to align with the necessary decarbonisation of the power sector. In this webinar, we will present our 1.5°C aligned benchmarks for decarbonising the power sector which show how the shares of coal, fossil gas and renewables need to evolve out to 2050 globally and for a broad cross section of countries.

The Climate Action Tracker, a joint initiative of Climate Analytics and NewClimate Institute, tracks government climate action in around 40 countries and measures it against the 1.5°C Paris Agreement limit.

Event details

In the years leading up to 2030, the stakes for the global community have never been higher. Meeting the 1.5°C goal requires global cooperation and bold leadership. The morning after the Ambition Summit, our panel of thought leaders and first movers debate its impact on the international climate process and set out what needs to happen on the road to COP28 and beyond. Plus, get the latest science on how climate change is impacting our world, what we can expect in the future, and the key actions we can still take to peak global emissions by 2025 and limit warming to 1.5°C for a more liveable world.
