Abstract

•We compile the carbon content of electricity in published IPCC projections.•All models agree: climate stabilization requires near-zero carbon electricity.•All considered countries decarbonize electricity under every climate stabilization target.•This finding is robust to the unavailability of technologies such as nuclear and CCS.•Electrification (e.g., electric cars) makes sense within a long-term strategy.
