Description

Dozens of leading studies (IPCC, governments, think tanks, NGOs) analyze what needs to be done to manage climate change risk and limit global temperature rise to 2C or 1.5C by 2050.  ERM has reviewed a range of these studies and found that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) arises in all of them as a key response option necessary to achieve the outcome.  ERM will summarize the energy transition pathways suggested by such studies, highlight the role of CCS in them and contrast that outlook with the status of CCS today.
