Global Transport 2050: scenarios and implications

Dr Karl Rose, Director of Policy & Scenarios at WEC will discuss the results of a year long study into how we could reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Today, the overall transport sector represents a quarter of total CO2 emissions. The World Energy Council projects that CO2 emissions from transport could be 80% higher in 2050. However, with clear policies that empower governments, the public and private sector to intervene, we could limit this increase to 15%.

During the lecture, Dr Karl Rose, Director of Policy & Scenarios at the World Energy Council (former Head of Strategy at Shell) will set out two distinct scenarios for the global transport sector in 2050. Dr Rose and Dr Ayed Al-Qahtani (Senior Project Manager, Scenarios, World Energy Council) will detail the findings of a yearlong study involving the World Energy Council's global member network and their modelling work with the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland.

The lecture will discuss the implications for fuel demand, technology mix and emissions in both Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and non OECD countries and will highlight the impact that clear coherent policies can have on the future of the transport sector.
