Electric power sector 2013

What can be done to reduce greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the electric power sector?

According to the IPCC, the electric power sector is the largest emitter of CO2 emissions, and accounts for nearly 27% of the carbon dioxide emitted by the world’s energy system. This contest seeks proposals for reducing emissions from the electricity sector, and it encompasses the industry’s entire value chain, from choice of fuel supply and power generation methods, to transmission and distribution. Proposals are encouraged to consider new component and system technologies, process changes, and novel approaches to policy, organizational practices and industry governance. See more...
