Near zero emissions by 2050 in industrialised countries, required for staying below the two-degree target, is a challenging but also liberating thought. It may first seem like an impossible task. But a growing number of studies show that such a transition is possible from a resource and technology point of view, as well as affordable.
The LETS-programme on Governing Transitions to Low Carbon Energy and Transport Systems takes this as a starting point for exploring the policy and governance challenges that may be associated with making a low carbon transition.
LETS started in January 2009 and finished in June 2013. The research has involved more than 25 researchers from thirteen different departments and groups.
