The energy transition is not moving fast enough

A recent article I read states, that investments in the transition to electrical transport surpassed transition to renewable energy, but still is far away from what is needed to achieve the set goals of 1,5 degrees Celsius warming, even 2 degrees seems out of reach.

A more radical approach might be needed, e.g. not transition to other energy types but decreasing energy consumption in total i.e. also taking into account less production in general. 

“Considering only policies adopted to date, the road transport sector is not yet on a pathway compatible with limiting warming to 2 degrees Celsius,” said Joshua Miller, director of modeling, monitoring and evaluation for the International Council on Clean Transportation. He was referring to the level of temperature rise that scientists have said must be avoided to stave off catastrophic harm.
