Introduction

Climate change is, without a doubt, one of the most pressing concerns that has yet to be resolved and is worsening by the day. Our globe has been warmer and colder than it is now for millions of years. Since 1970, the global surface temperature has risen faster than it has in any other 50-year period in at least the last 2000 years. Human activities have boosted greenhouse gas emissions (we'll refer to them as GHGs from now on), causing temperatures to rise. Determining the role of energy sector in this development and the way how this role changes throughout the years can better estimate the dependance of GHG emissions from energy generation and consumption.

Purpose

Determining the role of energy sector in climate change and the way how this role changes throughout the years in order to better estimate the dependance of GHG emissions from energy generation and consumption.

Method

In this study different data analysis and visualization techniques were performed to determine which role does energy generation and consumption play in GHG emissions and how this role changes by creating renewable energy resources

Results

The aim was to decide how each unit of energy generation from different recourses contribute to the amount of GHG released to the atmosphere.

Significance

It goes without saying that Climate disaster is the most discussable issues of the century. Current situation clearly demonstrates that present policies, including unconditional NDC (nationally Determined contributions) promises, fall far short of the ambition required to keep global warming below 2°C, let alone 1.5°C. This emphasizes the significance of a process to do more deeper researches in this sphere in order to make the parties to strengthen their NDCs
