Participants at a roundtable on how to accelerate the energy transition in the region and Serbia agreed that the move toward renewable sources is necessary and more cost effective than to build or even maintain the capacity for the production of power from coal. “An inadequate decarbonization is expensive and a late one is too expensive,” said Professor Nikola Rajaković from the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade. He and other speakers also insist the transformation leaves no room for coal.

Although cutting emissions to net-zero by 2050 will destroy jobs and push up the costs of doing business in some sectors, it will bring gains elsewhere that will make up for the difference, according to a new study by McKinsey & company.   “Net-zero emissions by 2050 should be achievable at a net-zero cost without compromising overall economic growth or prosperity,” says the study by the global consulting firm, published on Thursday (3 December).

Turning the boring into the interesting is a key aspect of public-sector initiatives that energizes people, be it public employees or residents! Gamification can accomplish that! Games are fun — they are not always about winning or losing, but about engaging people in an idea and a process.   Playing can spark new ideas, collaboration, and learning.   The Energy Transition Game is designed by the TripleA-reno team (together with DWA), does just that.
