The topic of this week’s The Energy Show was “Project Drawdown.” You may recall that SET’18 and SET’19 featured Drawdown Europe, an initiative of the German Energy Agency (dena) and EIT Climate-KIC, which was launched in 2018 and stems directly from Project Drawdown’s initial collaborative research project.
Project Drawdown seeks to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline. This means not only slowing down the emissions but reversing the trend of these emissions so that we can reverse global warming. This episode looks into and reviews the top 10 solutions ranked in Drawdown. Listen here!
