The Paris Climate Accord was agreed by 196 states at a United Nations Convention near Paris in 2015 and ratified in 2016. The main aim of the agreement is to keep the increase in global average temperature well below two degrees Celsius above the preindustrial level. The course willconsider whether this is feasible and how it might be achieved. We will consider what mitigation steps are available today in the
electrical, transport and industrial sectors, and where research and innovation will be required. We will not cover possible adaption
steps if this is not achieved or the theory of climate change.
