From price shock to independence from fossil fuels

Oil and gas prices are currently on the rise, raising questions about the security of Switzerland's energy supply. In a policy brief, researchers from the Energy Science Center at ETH Zurich have now shown what Switzerland ...

What is decarbonization, and how do we make it happen?

To keep the planet from warming more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, most countries, including the U.S., have goals to reach net zero by 2050. Net zero means that all greenhouse gas emissions produced are counterbalanced ...

1.5C is the climate goal, but how do we get there?

The science is painfully clear: to cap global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius—given that we're already at 1.1C—means slashing carbon pollution in half by 2030, and to zero by mid-century.

The challenge of capturing carbon

In the race to combat climate change, capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has been touted as a simple road to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. While the science behind carbon capture is sound, current technologies are ...
