To limit global warming to 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels, immediate global GHG reduction is necessary. The energy sector is responsible for 73% of global GHG emissions5. For this reason, the International Energy Agency (IEA) concluded that between now and 2050, current global energy demand must decrease from roughly 80% fossil fuel reliance to 20% reliance6.
