- Type of publication:Report
- Date of publication:October 2021
The drive to curb carbon emissions — and remove carbon from the atmosphere to the point where society is making a “net zero” contribution to CO2 levels — is essential to secure our future on this planet. A new report by Elsevier aims to advance the understanding of research and innovation in clean-energy and how it supports the drive toward a net zero future.
Pathways to Net Zero: The Impact of Clean Energy Research is based on a study analyzing more than 1.6 million papers from Elsevier’s Scopus database, combining data with content and subject-matter expertise to gain unique insights into how research can accelerate efforts to mitigate climate change. It’s designed to:
- Provide descriptive insights into dimensions of research collaboration and knowledge transfer of particular relevance to net zero innovation ahead COP26.
- Serve as an opening to discussions around net zero research and innovation.
- Act as a springboard for debate on research funding and collaboration, technological choices and policy setting.
