Green economy: energy generation

1296 views

International negotiations are under way to draft a global agreement governing action against climate change in the period after 2012, when key provisions of the Kyoto Protocol will expire. This agreement is due to be concluded at the UN Climate Change Conference, which will take place in Copenhagen on 7-18 December 2009. Reaching a deal that is global, comprehensive and ambitious is a top priority for the EU, which has long been in the vanguard of international action to combat climate change. The countries of the European Union are currently the global leaders in the development and application of renewable energy. Promoting the use of renewable energy sources is important both to the reduction of the EU's dependence on foreign energy imports, and in meeting targets to combat global warming. Already in 2007, EU leaders signed a binding EU-wide target to source 20% of their energy needs from renewables such as biomass, hydro, wind and solar power by 2020. On 23 January 2008, the Commission put forward differentiated targets for each EU Member State, based on the per capita GDP of each country. To illustrate this event, the Audiovisual Service of the EC has produced a series of stockshots on green economy, and the first stockshots of this series entitled: "Green economy: energy generation", contains the following images of: - wind power; - water power; - bioethanol; - exhibitions; - bioethanol; - biomass; - and solar power.
