Abstract

Reaching the economic, environmental, and sustainability objectives of all societies requires overcoming several major energy challenges. The scenario pathways highlighted in this talk describe transformative changes toward these goals, taking a broad view of the major energy sustainability challenges of the 21st century. The overarching goal of the work is to provide policy guidance on how to facilitate the transformation of the energy system to achieve these multiple energy objectives. Particular focus is given to their complex interlinkages, namely the synergies and trade-offs between the objectives and the quantification of co-benefits. The work approaches the global transition toward sustainable development in an integrated, holistic manner, exploring the dynamics through the lens of systems analysis.
