Energy Modelling Series | Seminar 1/2022
Decision support for reaching Net Zero
Jussi Nokkala | Director, Sustainability & Climate change leader | PwC Finland
Tommi Ekholm | Research professor, Climate change mitigation | Finnish Meteorological Institute
Kimmo Vilske | Partner, Energy utilities & resources leader | PwC Finland
In this event, we will review approaches to supporting decision making for reaching net zero carbon outcomes, focusing on marginal abatement cost curves (MACC). Jussi Nokkala from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) will consider how corporate approaches to climate change have shifted from climate reporting to climate reduction plans. He will then explain the MACC approach at PwC can support these carbon emissions reductions.
Tommi Ekholm from the Finnish Meteorological Institute will then give a commentary on MACC methodology from an academic perspective and how this can be used to support policymaking for a net zero carbon future. After this overview of MACC from corporate and academic perspectives,
Kimmo Vilske from PwC will explain the concrete outcomes of corporate emission reduction plans, looking at resulting projects and transactions for low carbon energy systems. Overall the event will inform the audience on the tools to support decision making for a net zero future, their application in different contexts, and the resulting outcomes.
This event will be held as a Zoom webinar. Register here.
We look forward to seeing you online on January 19th
