Speech by Lord Adair Turner, Chair of the Energy Transitions Commission, at the COP26 ‘Destination 2030’
Adair Turner presented the Energy Transitions Commission’s analysis of how latest pledges from first week of COP26 might help to close gap to a 1.5°C pathway. The speech was presented at the Destination 2030 event, a stock-take session of what has been achieved at COP26 so far, exploring what’s necessary, what’s possible & what’s already underway to deliver the promise of Paris & keep 1.5°C alive. Hosted by the UN High Level Climate Champions in partnership with the UK COP26 presidency.
The ETC has published an Insights Briefing as part of its conceptual framework to assess the role of carbon dioxide removals to reach net-zero.
The Energy Transitions Commission publishes new report outlining an action plan for six key areas in the 2020s to deliver on the 1.5°C pathway.
New report from The Energy Transitions Commission identifies the need for 40% methane emissions cuts by 2030 in order to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
New policy brief by the Clean Skies for Tomorrow initiative – supported by the Energy Transitions Commission and the World Economic Forum – finds that, with the right set of supportive measures, SAF production can feasibly ramp up to 10% of total European jet fuel consumption by 2030.
New report from the ETC urges industry and policy makers to prioritise bioresources for materials, aviation and niche energy applications.
New report from ETC and Material Economics focuses on mobilising buyers to accelerate demand for net-zero steel
New report from ETC and Material Economics demonstrates that demand signals from steel buyers to steel manufacturers can unlock investment decisions and bring forward the breakthrough technologies necessary for bringing net-zero primary steel to market.
The ETC developed the analytical work alongside Material Economics to refine global perspectives on the role of bioresources in a net-zero economy. Their deep dive on bioresource use in Europe provides a stark reminder that a course correction on biomass supply is urgently needed regionally.
The ETC has published a Consultation Paper as part of its 2021 Negative Emissions workstream.

China’s carbon-neutrality goal increases the urgency of meeting 100 percent of the nation’s new electricity demand growth with zero-carbon sources
Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) and Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) latest report focuses on analyzing the fundamental challenges to making China’s power system well-prepared for a surge of zero-carbon sources to achieve its new climate pledge.
Cost of hydrogen from renewables could fall more than 50% by 2030, with a five-fold demand growth by 2050
In India, hydrogen can start to compete with fossil fuels in certain industrial applications by 2030, given enough government support. With demand for hydrogen in India set to grow five-fold by 2050, the “Potential role of Hydrogen in India” report examines the positive impact on the transition to a zero-carbon energy system.
A report produced for the Getting to Zero Coalition, provides a blueprint to unlock the first wave of zero emission shipping projects.
Industry defines joint strategy for accelerating the transition to carbon neutrality in aviation in Europe by increasing uptake of sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) over the next decade.
Despite the global challenge presented by the COVID-19 crisis, China shows confidence, courage, and firm leadership towards green recovery and sustainable development.
Making Mission Possible: Global energy, industry and financial leaders outline next decade priorities for a net-zero-carbon economy
A year before COP26, new report from Energy Transitions Commission highlights actions required by 2030 to achieve zero-carbon economy by mid-century.
By 2030, a power system based almost entirely on variable renewable energy generation is likely to be lower cost than a fossil fuel-based system, even without a carbon price.
