A new initiative is calling for the widespread adoption of renewable energy to help cut emissions.
Reports released yesterday show climate targets set by the Paris Agreement won’t be met, unless there is a swift upturn in stakeholder action at all levels, and the Renewables4Climate group wants to keep the importance of clean power firmly centre stage as a key solution in this.
“Renewables are highlighted as one of the critical means to keep the global temperature rise below 2 or even 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels,” the Renewables4Climate website states. “Renewables also contribute to increased climate resilience and adaptation, accelerate energy access in rural areas, remote locations and small island developing states, and provide cleaner, healthier energy to all.”
