WWF PowerSwitch! scenarios for a clean energy future

Posted on

Melting glaciers, violent weather, severe droughts, warming oceans, species moving to cooler habitats: these are the ominous signs of climate change.

It will be extremely difficult to keep global warming below 2ºC because of massive growth in energy demand worldwide – but it is possible. This is the challenging goal of WWF’s Climate Change Programme.

The PowerSwitch! campaign zeros in on the biggest climate polluter: the coal-burning power sector. The goal of the PowerSwitch! campaign is to get governments to cut CO2 pollution produced by coal power stations and thereby force a switch to cleaner, more efficient power.

To prove that a switch from coal to clean is possible, WWF has produced PowerSwitch! scenarios for countries and regions around the world.
