Clean Energy Economy Workshop, Net-Zero Emissions

As defined by the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA), clean energy is energy from renewable, zero-emissions sources. It’s also energy obtained through measures that are energy efficient.

Energy efficiency is all about technologies (and passive solar) services and products that reduce the energy used for processes, tasks and buildings.

Renewable energy on the other hand refers to natural processes that cannot be depleted because they are regenerative over brief periods. Solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower and biomass are the most common renewable energy sources.

Another way of looking at it, clean energy is energy produced through methods that do not release pollutants such as greenhouse gases.

Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere are generally referred to as greenhouse gases. These include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gasses.

As part of the planet’s overall plan to slow and eventually reverse climate change, one focal point is the removal of any unavoidable emissions – what’s better known as net-zero emissions.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) demonstrated in its most recent report that net emissions must be reduced to zero in order to stabilize global temperatures. The report also stated that any scenario that does not involve a reduction to zero will not stop climate change.

This objective has been ratified by Switzerland, the EU and many other countries (soon to include the United States as promised by president-elect Joe Biden), under the Paris Agreement.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change.

The idea behind net-zero emissions is that the only way to stop the harmful effects of climate change is to reduce human-caused emissions (such as those from fossil-fueled factories and vehicles) to as close to zero as possible.

In theory, any remaining global greenhouse gases (GHG) would be balanced with an equivalent amount of carbon removal — for example by restoring forests or through direct air capture and storage (DACS) technology.

The latest research is clear: To avoid the worst climate impacts, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will only need to drop by half by 2030, then reach net-zero around mid-century.

Under the Paris Agreement, countries agreed to limit warming well below 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F) and ideally 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F).

Clean Energy Economy Workshop, Net-Zero Emissions Course by Tonex

Clean Energy Economy Workshop,  Net-zero Emissions is a 2-day workshop focusing on key concepts on clean energy future and environmental justice.

Tonex is proud to introduce revised clear vitality economic system workshop to discover the present state of the art, alternatives for industry, government, and tutorial collaboration, establish present R&D gaps, and supply an summary of the clear power initiatives and packages which can be main the trouble to construct a sustainable power financial system and progressive for net-zero emissions and solutions.

From coastal cities to rural farms to city centers, local weather vary poses an existential menace – not only to our environment, but to our health, our communities, our global security, and our financial well-being. It additionally damages our communities with storms that wreak havoc on our cities and cities and our properties and schools. It places our global safety in danger by resulting in regional instability that can require military-supported reduction actions and will compose areas extra at risk of terrorist activities.
