Sungevity's Klimaatnieuws - Week 42
We helpen je graag energie besparen. Daarom zetten we het laatste (internationale) solar-, klimaat-, en energienieuws voor je op een rijtje. Hoef je dat niet meer zelf te doen.
Solar power as a solution to climate change! Sungevity welcomes coming Monday Sebastian Sterl to speak on the untapped potential of solar powered electricity. He’s currently working toward his Ph.D. at the VUB and KU Leuven. Sebastian was recently featured in DeMorgen calling on the Flemish government to adopt more ambitious climate change measures. We look forward to learning from him what innovation in solar power lies ahead of us!
Solar power is advancing in Europe! The EU Commission has signed an agreement with Bill Gates-led Breakthrough Energy to set up a joint investment fund called Breakthrough Energy Europe. Currently, the fund counts a total of 100 Million EUR which will support ‘innovative European companies with developing and bringing radical new clean energy technologies to the market’. Gates’ objective is to call a halt to climate change, and the EU intends to specifically allocate these funds for promoting energy efficiency in areas such as electricity.
Some promising news from the lowlands. Current Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Waterworks presented in an interview with De Telegraaf a plan to organize in 2020 an international climate conference addressing innovative ways to reduce CO2 emissions, globally. In close collaboration with 17 other states, the Netherlands is devising novel ways to yield greater action against climate change. This so-called action plan will be presented in 2020 and should be making Amsterdam the new Paris of international climate governance.
Young, wild, and clever! Boyan Slat’s ‘The Ocean Cleanup’ pollution collector has been introduced to waters of the Pacific Ocean, DeMorgen reports. An estimate of around 1.8 billion individual pieces of plastics is floating around this area in the Pacific Ocean, dubbed The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Let’s hope that this innovative technology will successfully return in a few months the desired amount of plastic, making ocean life more habitable.
As the weather remains eerily climate change-esque warm, The Guardian is preparing us well for the approaching chill winter months. In light of last week’s newly published report from the IPCC, the British newspaper calls its readers to action. A list with the most feasible initiatives individuals can undertake, solar-powered houses were mentioned! Readers are being advised to install as soon as possible solar panels on their roofs before government incentives will end next year. Maybe Sungevity can power their inspiration!
