Around the world, governments, corporations, and scientists are making the case, and commitments, for decarbonizing electricity generation by the 2030s. With humanity still relying on fossil fuels with emissions for around 80% of our primary energy use, the scale of the transition needed can be daunting. However, clean electricity and increased electrification are a proven way to displace emissions from fossil fuels in our global economy. Experts from numerous different perspectives and organizations discussed how we can best achieve this important transition.
