EUROSOLAR’s 2020 message to Europe: Declare Climate & Energy Emergency – Renewable Escalation Now
EUROSOLAR leads the good fight in climate stabilisation efforts, united with many others. We are prepared to accelerate and escalate renewable energy uptake to 100% and beyond ever more rapidly – with a growing community of allies of all ranks and ages – from green bankers to elementary school students. On this World Climate Emergency Strike Day we call for a supportive Renewable Energy for Climate Stabilisation Emergency Declaration.
REN21 is taking stock of cities’ efforts to transition to renewable energy with their first global status report on Renewable Cities 2019. Cities are responsible for a large share of emissions but at the same time, they have good reasons to change track. UNEP’s Emissions Gap Report 2019 shows that in contrast to many public pledges by politicians, governments and companies, the world is by no means on its way to reduce emissions and create a low-carbon economy any time soon. More than 70 percent of cities are already affected by climate change and numbers will only go up.
In late November, right after the European Solar Prize awards in Luxembourg, delegates from EUROSOLAR sections all over Europe gathered in the head office in Bonn. In the ancient building near the river that has hosted the organisation since 1999, the delegates from Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Russia and Spain met to update one another on recent developments in their countries and to determine EUROSOLAR’s strategy for the next four years.
