Research says transition to 100% renewables would reduce power disruption and stabilise energy prices
Edie.net reports that a research team at Stanford University has outlined a new roadmap for 139 countries to switch to 100% renewable energy by 2050, which it claims would avoid 1.5C global warming and prevent millions of premature deaths from air pollution. According to the study, the transition could create 24.3 million new full-time jobs in the renewables sector, save $25.5trn a year in climate costs and avoid 4-7 million premature air-pollution related deaths each year. Transitioning to 100% renewables would reduce power disruption, increase access to decentralised energy and stabilise energy prices, according to research. Read the full story here.
