The Deep Decarbonization Draft: Fantasy Sports for Energy Nerds

Like fantasy sports? Listen to our deep decarbonization draft. 

In this episode, Shayle and Stephen choose their rosters of nine technologies to decarbonize the global economy. The goal: find the best resource mix to keep global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius. 

After they battle it out, listeners decide who has the best team of technologies. Vote here.

Here are the rules:

  1. The draft has nine rounds. The “team” resulting from each person’s picks will need to stand on its own. 
  2. Each pick must be a unique technology. For example, “energy efficiency” is not a pick, but “LED lighting” is.
  3. Technologies with major subsets must be picked separately. For example, rooftop solar and centralized solar are two different picks.
  4. The existing technology mix will stand. (We don’t need to pick “transmission & distribution” in order to have electricity.)
  5. The time horizon will be through 2050.
  6. The winner will be chosen by listeners. 

Once you’ve listened to the episode, vote in the Twitter poll below or access our GTM poll. We’ll tally the results for a future episode.
