Denmark, the United Kingdom, and Canada lead the world when it comes to implementing measures to mitigate climate change, according to new research published earlier this month at the UN climate change conference, COP24, currently underway in Katowice, Poland, which assessed 25 countries that account for 80% of the world’s population. The new report, Energy Revolution: A Global Outlook , was conducted by researchers from Imperial College London and E4tech, facilitated by Imperial Consultants and commissioned by Drax Group, and analyzed several global decarbonization scenarios to identify five critical technologies and measures that are consistently relied upon to limit climate change to below 2°C. The researchers also compiled international datasets to investigate progress being made by countries around the world. The five performance metrics identified by the researchers against which they measured their 25 countries were: Clean power Fossil fuels Uptake and sales of electric vehicles Capacity for carbon storage Energy efficiency of households, buildings and transport Across the five areas as a whole, Denmark is leading the way, followed closely by the United Kingdom in second place and Canada close behind in third. “We researched how the world is progressing on uptake of the five key technologies and […]
