AbstractThe transition analysis presented in this paper explores the feasibility and implications of articulating a transition aligned with the 1.5C climate policy goal, within the boundaries of sustainability, and that reinforces the resilience from the socio-economic systems. The results from the analysis show that such a transition is still feasible, but in order to achieve the required transition rates structural changes have to be addressed. Peak renewable energy deployment rates more than one order of magnitude higher than current values would be required. Integration of the energy system through smart electrification is a must to unlock high transition rates within the energy sector. Because of the delay on undertaking such a transition, even these high transition rates within the energy sector are not enough to provide climate alignment, and ambitious transitions in forestry, agriculture and industry (process and fluorinated gasses) are needed to achieve the global climate goal. Innovative policies are required in all the fronts (energy, economy, financing, social accountability, …) to facilitate and enable the structural changes that have the key for the required high transition rates, with the transition from representative contexts to participative contexts being one of the key areas where policy action needs to focus.
