In Paris the world leaders decided to limit global warming to 2.0 °C. In order to reach that goal, we need to reach net zero emissions of carbon dioxide in 2055. Many techniques already are available where others still need to be developed. HvA and UvA are already using some of these techniques and will apply more in the future. Alternative ways to produce energy are used more and more but we need to change more rapidly in order to reach net zero emissions in 2055.
