Clean energy investment ‘must be 50% higher’ to limit warming to 1.5C

Paris agreement and investment needs: What additional investment is needed to limit global warming not to 2C but to only 1.5C? Low carbon energy and energy efficiency investments have to increase far faster. Further downscaling of coal investments is not needed as a dramatic...

10 Facts about Energy Management

About 11% of all EU energy consumption can be economised cost-effectively through the adoption of more effective energy management. Energy management is a structured process through which organisations seek to optimise their energy use, by reducing energy waste, increasing energy-efficiency and increasing the share of renewable energy. Energy management standards, such as EN ISO 50001, offer a comprehensive approach to address the various behavioural, technological and regulatory requirements....

Paris agreement and investment needs: What additional investment is needed to limit global warming not to 2C but to only 1.5C? Low carbon energy and energy efficiency investments have to increase far faster. Further downscaling of coal investments is not needed as a dramatic downscaling is already necessary to reach the 2C goal.
