Countdown to Climate Action Summit 2019: A Race We Can Win. A Race We Must Win.
To prevent climate disaster, the world aims to reduce carbon emissions within twelve years and hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C and even, as asked by the latest science, to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. To achieve these ambitious yet necessary goals, the world’s countries, cities, companies, investors and citizens must join together and take decisive action. Transition to renewable energy and resilience and adaptation to the impact of climate, particularly in those communities and nations that are most vulnerable, is key for a secure and sustainable energy future.
The aim of the Climate Action Summit is for the world’s leaders to put in place concrete, realistic plans to stop the increase in emissions by 2020, in line with reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45% over the next decade, and to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Achieving these drastic changes will involve disruption of national economies and investment of enormous resources in new and scalable energy technologies and engineering solutions to make shifts in the fossil fuel economy, ending subsidies for fossil fuels and high-emitting agriculture and replacing them with renewable solar and wind, electric vehicles and climate-smart practices.
Towards the upcoming September 23rd Summit in New York, the U.N. is promoting initiatives in nine interdependent tracks, central of which is the Energy Transition Track led by the governments of Denmark and Ethiopia and supported by Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL). Aiming to mobilize investment for a smooth transition to clean energy, efforts are focused on streamlining and simplifying mechanisms to expand financing for clean energy; promotion of public-private partnerships; driving energy efficiency gains in every country; focus on IT and data centers and efficient batteries for energy storage.
Going forward towards the Summit, the energy transition track has made traction concerning alternative fuels for the shipping industry; the development of green hydrogen; transition away from coal and development of carbon capture and storage solutions. In parallel, the energy transition track elevates the principle of leaving no one behind – aiming to make access to energy for the future both universal and emission-free. Transcending nations and businesses, climate issues are galvanizing our communities at every level to work together to achieve our shared goals. As the September Climate Action Summit approaches, GenCell Energy is proud that by making clean, reliable backup and off-grid solutions accessible and affordable, we are contributing to the achievement of climate targets while ensuring sustainable power for those who need it. #SayNoToDiesel
