IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment Program Director Keywan Riahi will talk about "Energy systems transformations towards sustainable development" at the annual Young Scientist Symposium at ISTA, Klosteneuburg
How we think of energy supply is rapidly changing – what are the challenges we are facing?
For the first time, YSS will span two days, packed with exciting presentations from leading researchers across multiple disciplines, talking about the challenges and possible solutions concerning energy.
Riahi will talk about transformation pathways for the energy sector for reaching multiple sustainability objectives, including the goal of the UN Paris Agreement to hold warming well below 2°C and pursue limiting it to 1.5°C, on Thursday, 20 October at 10:10.
