COP 27 Side Event | Implications of 1.5°C Pathways for Gas Demand and Supply in Europe
How can policy-makers, investors, and companies align energy decision making with Paris Agreement goals and simultaneously resolve the short-term gas supply crunch? Building on a new International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) report, Navigating Energy Transitions: Mapping the Road to 1.5°C, this event will explore the implications of 1.5°C-aligned energy scenarios for phasing out gas consumption and production in Europe. Speakers will discuss how Europe’s energy needs can be met while also reducing dependence on the Russian gas supply by accelerating renewable energy and energy efficiency.
In the midst of the energy crisis, this webinar examines the likely energy and economic consequences for Europe and for developing economies affected by European decisions, including those affected by European Union overseas investment in energy projects.
