Shifting the world to clean electricity with data and policy
Ember’s core work is focused on shifting the world to clean electricity.
We have specialist teams working in Asia and Europe to galvanise action in the world’s biggest emitters, by using data and analysis to highlight the solutions and policy enablers.
Our vision of a clean power system
Led by wind and solar
Wind and solar will be the backbone of the future electricity system. The IPCC shows that wind and solar can deliver a third of the emissions cuts required by 2030, while actually bringing down energy costs.
Enabled by many technologies
A system dominated by wind and solar will be enabled by a range of essential technologies including storage, interconnection, demand-side flexibility, firm clean sources like hydro, advanced geothermal and nuclear, and hydrogen electrolysers.
Many times bigger than today
Global electricity demand will be many times larger than today as more sectors benefit from running on electricity instead of fuels. Every single person in the world’s growing population will have access to affordable clean energy.
Powering the whole economy
Electrifying everything possible, from transport to industry, will unlock major efficiency gains and emissions reductions.
Global Insights Lead, EmberTripling renewables is the single biggest action required this decade for the climate. Furthermore, clean electricity will reduce energy costs and pollution, and boost efficiency and energy security.
The ambition required for 1.5C
Tripling renewable capacity worldwide is the single biggest action required this decade for the climate.
Solar and wind are expected to be the major drivers of growth in renewables this decade. In the Net Zero Scenario presented by IEA, global solar and wind share reaches 40% by 2030.
