Accelerating Clean Technology Access for Emerging Market Consumers - 30 Nov 2023

Emerging markets (EMs) are home to 80% of the world's population, with Southeast Asia, India and Africa together consuming one-quarter of global energy. With changes in lifestyle brought about by growing affluence projected in these EMs – cars, air-conditioning, larger homes, and higher protein diets, their share of global emissions may rise to 73% by 2050. Thus, achieving our collective climate goals requires supporting a technological leapfrog and rapid adoption of renewable energy production and consumption in EMs.
