Pathways to Deep Decarbonization - Executive Summary

Source: Sustainable Development Solutions Network

From What is the DDPP?:

The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) is a collaborative global research initiative to understand how individual countries can transition to a low-carbon economy consistent with the internationally agreed goal of limiting anthropogenic warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius (°C). Staying within this limit requires global net emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) to approach zero in the second half of this century. This will entail, more than any other factor, a profound transformation of energy systems, through steep declines in carbon intensity across all sectors, a transition we call “deep decarbonization”.

The DDPP consists of research teams from 16 countries representing 74% of current global CO2 emissions from energy: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States....

In the fall of 2015, all 16 teams are publishing stand-alone reports describing in greater detail their research into national DDPs. In addition, a new synthesis report provides a cross-cutting analysis of the aggregate results.
