La Red de Soluciones para el Desarrollo Sostenible (SDSN) organiza, en colaboración con la UPM y REDS y en el marco de la COP25, la Conferencia "Systems Transformation for a 1.5 Degree World", una edición especial de las conferencias sobre soluciones para lograr bajas emisiones (LESC) que han tenido lugar en las últimas cumbres del clima de Naciones Unidas.

En esta ocasión, la Conferencia parte de las lecciones aprendidas del informe de SDSN Roadmap to 2050 A Manual for National to Decarbonize by Mid-Century, elaborado con la Fundación FEEM. El documento presenta las distintas tecnologías disponibles para descarbonizar los sectores de la electricidad, el transporte, la industria y la construcción, y aborda las oportunidades que ofrece un enfoque sistémico.
 
Esta conferencia será un espacio complementario a la COP25 donde se produzca una tormenta de ideas colaborativa, donde se planteen soluciones a problemas existentes y donde se comparta el conocimiento. Para ello, reunirá a científicos, representantes del sector privado y gubernamentales de todo el mundo.
 
La conferencia incluye 6 mesas que abordarán la descarbonización en las siguientes áreas:
  • Zero-Carbon Cities
  • Low Carbon Power Generation and Distribution
  • Harder to abate industrial processes (aluminum, cement and petrochemicals)
  • Transport and Shipping: Land, Air, Water
  • Defining Metrics: Ensuring Impact on Sustainable Development
  • Systems Approach and Sector Coupling
Las conferencias serán en inglés con traducción simultánea. Más información aquí.

Te invitamos a que te registres ya, dado que el aforo será limitado.

Agenda

  • 09 Dec9:00AM
    Registration
  • 09 Dec9:30AM
    Welcome Remarks
    Speaker(s):

    Guillermo Cisneros, Rector, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM)

  • 09 Dec9:45AM
    Opening Keynotes
    Speaker(s):

    Jeffrey Sachs, Director, SDSN
    Maria Mendiluce, Managing Director, WBCSD

  • 09 Dec10:30AM
    Setting the Scene: Roadmap to 2050
    Speaker(s):

    Paolo Carnevale, Director, FEEM

  • 09 Dec10:50AM
    Coffee break
  • 09 Dec11:00AM
    Low Carbon Power Generation and Distribution

    This session will bring together engineers, companies, and policy makers to discuss the role of new technologies for low-carbon power generation in the future, which solutions will be available to provide flexibility to support a large-scale integration into electricity systems by generation from non-dispatchable RES; and which policies and strategies can support the development and deployment of these new technologies.

    Moderator(s):

    Manfred Hafner, Professor, FEEM

    Speaker(s):

    TBA

  • 09 Dec12:15PM
    Transport and Shipping: Land, Air, Water

    This session will focus on the harder to abate transport modes, such as heavy road transport, shipping and aviation. Speakers will agree on the importance of mobility levers (demand reduction, operational efficiency) and outline how these solutions could be integrated in decarbonization pathways for these various transport modes; suggest how decarbonization pathways can consider a portfolio of solutions per transport mode and acknowledge that solutions will vary by region; and highlight cross-cutting technologies and infrastructure which should be priority areas of focus for governments.

    Moderator(s):

    TBA

    Speaker(s):

    Anirban Ghosh, CSO, Mahindra
    Kirsten Dunlop, CEO, Climate KIC

  • 09 Dec1:30PM
    Lunch break
  • 09 Dec2:30PM
    Hard to abate industrial processes (e.g. steel, cement and chemicals)

    In this session, we will hear from industry stakeholders on how they are approaching the decarbonization of these critical sectors and what are some of the early wins that others can follow to increase their decarbonization trajectories in line with 1.5 C. Speakers will agree on the importance of materials efficiency and circularity for carbon mitigation suggest how decarbonization pathways can incorporate a portfolio of solutions per sector and acknowledge that solutions will vary by region; and highlight cross-cutting technologies and infrastructure which should be priority areas of focus for governments.

    Moderator(s):

    Alberto Garrido, Vicerrector de Calidad y Eficiencia de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM)

  • 10 Dec9:15AM
    Defining Metrics: Ensuring Impact for Sustainable Development

    Flexible reporting methodologies give way for greenwashing, providing a free pass to companies and nations who are promising far more than they are prepared or planning to deliver. Rigorous reporting standards are needed to hold entities to their commitments and in other cases, analyze gaps. Such standards will clearly distinguish between good and weak performers in the sectors that need to decarbonize, and offer insight into how various sectors support and overlap with each other. This panel will discuss successful undertakings in terms of developing sustainable development analysis which promote and disclose dynamic incorporation of both emission reduction efforts and sustainable development priorities such as those covered with the SDGs.

    Moderator(s):

    Perrine Toledano, Economics and Policy Researcher, Columbia University Center on Sustainable Investment

    Speaker(s):

    Carlos Sallé Alonso, Senior Vice-President of Energy Policies and Climate Change, Iberdrola
    Suzanne Greene, Program Manager, Sustainable Supply Chains Initiative, MIT

  • 10 Dec10:30AM
    Coffee break
  • 10 Dec10:45AM
    Systems Approach and Sector Coupling

    This session will feature speakers who work either as entities that must consider a systems approach to assure a net positive transition, or stakeholders who are currently working in key cross-cutting technologies that will help transition the entire system in a net zero emission world.

    Moderator(s):

    Jeffrey Sachs, Director, SDSN

    Speaker(s):

    John Dernbach, Commonwealth Professor of Environmental Law and Sustainability, Widener University Commonwealth Law School
    Megan Argyriou, Head of International Programs, ClimateWorks Aus
