Why Choose this Training Course?

This Fundamentals of Decarbonisation training course presents comprehensive training on decreasing carbon emissions. Decarbonisation is the essential road to keep the planet from warming more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Most nations aim to achieve net zero by 2050. Net zero refers to a situation in which all greenhouse gas emissions produced are balanced out by an equivalent number of emissions eliminated. To achieve this, rapid decarbonisation is required.

There are two aspects to Decarbonisation. The first is lowering the amount of greenhouse gases released when fossil fuels are burned. This can be achieved through reducing emissions by using as many electrified sectors as possible, as well as zero-carbon renewable energy sources like wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, and biomass, which currently account for one-third of the world's power capacity. Energy demand will decrease due to energy efficiency, but it will increase due to increased electrification, with the demand for power predicted to more than quadruple by 2050.

Decarbonisation will therefore necessitate removing carbon from the atmosphere by capturing emissions and improving carbon storage in forests and agricultural lands. All these issues will be covered in this training course.

This PetroKnowledge Fundamentals of Decarbonisation training course will highlight:

  • Definition and Importance of Decarbonisation
  • Carbon footprint reduction and environmental sustainability
