ESG Webinar – Decarbonising the global energy system and why it might happen faster than you thinkJune 21, 2021
On 17 June, we heard from Dr. Matt Ives from the University of Oxford on decarbonising the global energy system and why it might happen faster than you think.
This is a fascinating subject, with Dr Ives’ research suggesting that technology advances in renewables are constantly being under-estimated and there will be trigger point, when clean energy costs falls below products, such as coal. Such a scenario would make the transition to ‘net zero’ cheaper, faster and easier than is currently assumed.
This is part of Marex’s ESG collaboration with the University of Oxford.
In the session, we also got to hear from Professor Moritz Riede from the Oxford Department of Physics, who provided insights on emerging trends in renewable technologies.
