Über dieses Buch

This open access book presents detailed pathways to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2050, globally and across ten geographical regions. Based on state-of-the-art scenario modelling, it provides the vital missing link between renewable energy targets and the measures needed to achieve them. Bringing together the latest research in climate science, renewable energy technology, employment and resource impacts, the book breaks new ground by covering all the elements essential to achieving the ambitious climate mitigation targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement. For example, sectoral implementation pathways, with special emphasis on differences between developed and developing countries and regional conditions, provide tools to implement the scenarios globally and domestically. Non-energy greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios define a sustainable pathway for land-use change and the agricultural sector. Furthermore, results of the impact of the scenarios on employment and mineral and resource requirements provide vital insight on economic and resource management implications. 

The book clearly demonstrates that the goals of the Paris Agreement are achievable and feasible with current technology and are beneficial in economic and employment terms. It is essential reading for anyone with responsibility for implementing renewable energy or climate targets internationally or domestically, including climate policy negotiators, policy-makers at all levels of government, businesses with renewable energy commitments, researchers and the renewable energy industry.




Über den Autor

Dr Sven Teske is a Research Director at the Institute for Sustainable Futures.  Dr Teske has 25 years’ experience in technical analysis of renewable energy systems and market integration concepts. He has published over 50 special reports in renewable across the world, including the global 100% renewable energy scenario “Energy [R]evolution”, a grid analysis for the Chinese province Jiangsu in cooperation with the China State Grid Company and a 100% renewable energy pathway for Australia. Dr Teske was a lead author for the IPCC Special Report Renewables (Chapter 10: Scenario analysis), which was published in 2011.  Sven also has practical experience in small-scale utility development.  He originally developed the concept for a green utility and founded in 1999 the “Greenpeace energy eG”– Germany’s first cooperative in the power sector. Sven has a PhD economics from the University of Flensburg in Germany; he focused for his thesis on Integration of high penetrations of solar photovoltaic and wind into power systems.
