This chapter highlights the type of technologies that will be crucial for meeting global climate goals and specifies the uncertainties associated with them. It focuses on ambiguities pertaining to development pathways, economic growth, technological development and cost, socio-political factors, and secondary and tertiary impacts. It also outlines the principals for more effective technology partnerships to meet climate stabilisation targets. Further, it provides the templates of three alternative modalities for technological development.
Technology cooperation can reduce uncertainties and avoid lock-ins and imperfect policy decisions to ensure speed and scale of low carbon technology penetration for 1.5-degree Celsius world
