Video: Small scale solutions towards emissions reduction

Low-carbon technologies that are smaller scale, more affordable, and can be mass deployed are more likely to enable a faster transition to net-zero emissions, according to a new study by an international team of researchers.

Innovations ranging from solar panels to electric bikes also have lower investment risks, greater potential for improvement in both cost and performance, and more scope for reducing energy demand – key attributes that will help accelerate progress on decarbonisation.

Here is a video with Tyndall Centre’s Dr Charlie Wilson on why smaller-scale solutions might be better than larger-scale technologies:
