Within the Global Energy Assessment we analyzed a range of energy system transformation strategies that meet simultaneously this set of policy objectives, including universal energy access, improving energy security, reductions of human health impacts of energy systems as well as limiting the magnitude of climate change below 2°C. Using ENE’s integrated modeling framework and considering inherent uncertainties of the future, the following main findings were identified:
The insert shows an illustrative GEA pathway with radically improved energy efficiency to limit energy demand, enabling the use of a wide range of supply-side portfolios to meet the multiple energy policy objectives.
