Extract from the back cover
Achieving our energy transition to a net zero emission (NZE) world will be difficult and costly, but we have no choice. If we want the planet to be liveable for our children, we need to shift energy production from fossil to decarbonised sources and transform the economy. The climate clock is ticking very fast: such a transition cannot wait.
Technological progress, changing individual preferences and social norms, fiscal and regulatory policies, green finance... - the levers for lowering carbon emissions are numerous. Some are more effective, others are easier to put in place, but none, used alone, can be sufficient. We need to mobilise them all, within a package of measures structured around a carbon price that reflects the reduction in the carbon budget.
