Abstract

Stabilizing global greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations at levels to avoid significant climate risks will require massive ‘decarbonisation’ over the next few decades. Achieving the necessary scale of emissions reductions will require well-thought out strategies and a multifaceted policy effort to support a broad array of technological and behavioral changes. This paper outlines some core principles for guiding the design of clean technology policies, with a focus on energy Carolyn Fischer is a Senior Fellow at Resources for the Future.
