Heat pumps vs. AC: Report notes progress, challenges in reaching climate goals

"...“The world's climate ambitions hinge on our ability to make the global energy system more efficient,” IEA executive director Fatih Birol said. It was not all negative, however, as the report did note “strong gains” from certain countries and regions, with the European Union set to post a five per cent improvement this year, and the U. S..."

Oil and gas well drillers want federal funding to help industry decarbonize Globalnews.ca

"...The drilling sector's emissions reduction efforts have not been as high-profile as those of the oilsands industry, which is proposing a $16. 5-billion carbon capture and storage project in northern Alberta that it says will help it reach net-zero emissions from production by 2050. But Scholz said there are many things oil and gas drillers can do to lower their carbon footprint, from rig electrification to hydrogen fuel blending to investing in battery energy storage systems for oil well drilling sites..."

IEA report warns oil and gas companies against banking on carbon capture Globalnews.ca

"...In a report released Thursday, the Paris-based IEA said oil and gas companies need to start “letting go of the illusion” that “implausibly large” amounts of carbon capture are the solution to the global climate crisis. Carbon capture and storage refers to the use of technology to sequester harmful greenhouse gas emissions from industrial processes and store them safely underground. In Canada, carbon capture and storage has become a key pillar of the oil and gas sector's decarbonization goals..."

Latin America

"...Beyond tackling CO2 emissions, major producers in the region can reduce methane emissions from oil and gas operations by nearly 80 per cent at low cost, and around 40 per cent with no net costs, supporting the Global Methane Pledge that most countries have signed. Based on announced pledges, emissions from land use and agriculture, which account for half of economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions in the region today, are cut by the end of the decade and reach net zero. About 85 per cent of forests in the region are in countries that are part of the Glasgow Pledge, which aims to stop deforestation by 2030..."
