This paper provides an overview of key features of the most promising and innovative large scale low-carbon economy transition plans and strategies. The paper draws on and updates findings from the Post Carbon Pathways project which has reviewed a diverse range of ambitious large scale decarbonisation strategies, augmented by in depth interviews with leading climate and energy transition researchers and policy makers. The study identifies a range of strategies authored by governments, including those of the EU, UK, Wales, Scotland, Denmark, California and Germany, designed to achieve 2050 emissions reduction targets of between 80 and 100%. The study also identifies a range of strategies developed by nongovernment research organisations in the UK, Germany, Norway, Australia and the US that demonstrate the technological feasibility of achieving close to 100% emissions reduction in the period 2020–2050.
