It will be very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve sustainable development and global climate goals without significant use of nuclear energy. Accelerating the energy transition and strengthening ambitions based on lowering renewable energy costs Companies are producing results towards sustainability, reduction and resilience goals. By promoting effective changes in the energy transition, rural and urban development decisions, as well as the structure of supply chains and the bio and circular economy, the private sector will enable its DMCs to reduce their dependence on coal and ultimately move away from coal-fired electricity. This is achieved by setting standards and requirements such as emission ceilings and minimum efficiency levels, while introducing low-carbon and climate-resilient technologies, including carbon capture and storage. Nuclear power provides a stable and reliable power supply. It can provide low-carbon electricity to support the growing use of renewable energy. This can be the key that unlocks its potential by offering flexible support – day or night, rain or sun. The United Nations Environment Programme was present at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) to take the next decisive action to combat climate change. UNEP supported UNEP`s commitment to increasing their ambitions and moving from negotiations to implementation. The urgent objectives were to translate the Paris Agreement into robust, ambitious and sufficient NDCs and to ensure that they are put in place to be successfully implemented. Measuring and allocating the climate contribution to financiers In order to move from incremental improvements to transformative changes in climate change measures, financiers should be encouraged to make green investments. This requires measuring and allocating their Climate Contribution Scope 3, a complex task that raises several new and difficult questions. Advancing Sustainable Cities: Renewables as the key to the climate, energy and mobility transition On 7 December, SEforALL is organising a side event entitled The Heat is on: Ingredients to Close the SDG7 Clean Cooking Finance Gap by 2030.
The world is at a turning point to ensure there are enough financial flows to meet the SDG7 goals and achieve universal electrification and clean access to the kitchen by 2030. Recently published reports on energy finance show that in the absence of urgent and substantial measures, this is becoming less and less likely. The debate will focus on financing and implementing electrification and clean-up solutions in developing countries, with a particular focus on accelerating access to finance for women. This event is hosted by Olivia Coldrey, Finance Specialist, SEforALL. Guest speakers include Tom Derksen, Managing Director Renewable Energy, SNV, Chavi Meattle, Climate Finance Analyst, Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) and Hubert Ruzibiza, Chief Executive Officer, Rwanda Green Fund (FONERWA). . . .
