Change in the air at COP 23

December 6th, 2017, Published in Articles: Energize

The secretary general of the World Energy Council, Christoph Frei, says that the Paris Agreement really was a tipping point on the road towards low-carbon energy systems. The recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, focused on advancing the global energy transition and underlined the accelerating global shift towards cleaner and renewable energy sources.

Several announcements of initiatives and publications on the challenges and opportunities were presented at the event. Countries, regions and cities have started adopting mitigating strategies and that progress cannot be stopped, he says.
