The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that about 75% of the CO2 emission reduction effort will have to come from non-mature #technologies. This does not mean, that they must be invented from scratch; but rather a fast upscaling of existing technologies in laboratories up to pilots, up to demos and finally into the market is crucial.

➡️Which technologies are expected to have a significant impact on the #EnergyTransition?
➡️Which ones need to be deployed quickly in order to reach the #CarbonNeutrality target in 2050 and meet the 2-degree trajectory of the #ParisAgreement?

Such an important point-- we have a lot of tech available now, and a lot that's promising, but there's also critical need to keep developing them so their business cases improve, since that's just as important.
