Eliminating Energy-Related Carbon Emissions Possible, New IRENA Study Finds

Decarbonisation of global energy system, led by renewables and efficiency, would create economic gains

Global energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions can be reduced by 70% by 2050 and completely phased-out by 2060 with a net positive economic outlook, according to new findings released today by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
