Global Energy Forum at COP28 - The suite of technologies available to abate emissions from the energy system is expansive, but there is no one-size-fits-all approach. The deployment of technologies and their timelines will depend on business models, the clearing of bureaucratic roadblocks, and national or economic security concerns. In the near future, installing methane abatement systems at scale is paramount. In the long term, the vast array of technologies that can decarbonize power, industry, and transport has the potential to dramatically reform energy systems. What are the main drivers influencing technological pathways towards decarbonization? What assumptions are made when projecting the future technology mix?
