The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has analysed for the UK’s Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy some key research questions related to the implementation of the UN Paris Climate Agreement of 2015 and of the UK’s contribution. We have provided an assessment of some of the avoided global and regional impacts of achieving the Paris Goal, we have analysed new energy and CO2 pathways that limit climate change to 1.5oC and 2.0oC warming (the Paris Goal) and we have put these in the context of existing studies. We also examined some of the technical and societal innovations required to support such energy transformations.
