The Energy Systems Integration Group (ESIG) recently posted an article emphasizing the importance of accelerating progress in the next two years toward decarbonization to “turn the curve” on emissions reductions.
As the article asserts, near-term actions will have significant impact – many times more so than the same actions taken five or ten years later. However, this phase brings with it many challenges associated with developing new grid infrastructure, as well as regulatory and business processes that are tailored for the long-term even though short-term actions are necessary. The article highlights success stories where technology, policy, and leadership have demonstrated faster progress, calling attention to cases where approaches have been delivered quickly and have had high impact.
