Climate change impacts

Society is facing major investments in the coming decades due to climate change. It is important that these costly and far-reaching decisions are made on the best available scientific basis. DTU do measurements, observations and assessments of the many factors that influence climate change. This knowledge is a part of our work with global and regional climate models in collaboration with other universities.

Mitigation

Global warming affects the climate worldwide. By reducing the CO2 emissions we can slow the progression. That is why we need sustainable energy technologies and intelligent energy systems. In the short term, the upward curve of CO2 emissions needs to be turned downward. In the long term energy system must be changed radically, so that the CO2 emissions by 2050 are lowered by 50%. DTU develops the necessary technologies and systems and work on having them implemented as soon as possible.

Adaptation

Adapting the world to a changing climate is a major global challenge, and climate change will increase inequality in the world, since already vulnerable regions in many developing countries will suffer most. Also Europe and Denmark will face threats such as sea-level rise, temperature rise and more extreme weather. DTU contributes to building up the necessary knowledge, so that society can adapt sectors and infrastructure to a changing climate.
