2015 will be remembered as a transformative year for energy.
The world finally came together to act on climate with the inspiring Paris Agreement at COP21 - a deal beyond the outside edge of what most commentators had considered achievable. And while others might argue that the Paris Agreement could have been a lot more ambitious it has at least started the slow but important process and showed that there is hope. With so many commitments to keeping temperature rises under two degrees Centigrade and eventually decarbonising the world’s economy. Wow!
We also saw dramatic price plunges for oil and natural gas to the significant emergence of industrial batteries for energy storage, 2015 was on a momentous course even before the world came together in Paris to agree on steps to reduce global warming.
What has been particularly heartening, however, is that 2015 has seen a further geographical broadening of clean energy. 2015 may well turn out to be the first year in which developing countries as a whole invest more in renewable power than developed ones. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
Last but not least the new year ushers in the official launch of the bold and transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by world leaders last September at the United Nations. The new Agenda calls on countries to begin efforts to achieve 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over the next 15 years.
With that, it just remains to wish a happy holiday to all customers, friends and partners of Anton Energy.
