EU Sustainable Energy


"On 31 January and 1st February 2013, R20 Conference took place in Vienna. The conference aimed to demonstrate, through concrete examples, that the transformation of the energy system at sub-national level is an essential step towards the green economy paradigm shift. Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Governor of California and Founding Chair of the "R20 Regions of Climate Action", along with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Assembly of European Regions and the Nobel Sustainability Trust organised the R20. José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, took also part in the meeting. The objective of this conference is to point out the role of sub national governments in reaching the goals of both the "United Nations Sustainable Energy for All" campaign and the "European Union’s climate and Energy package". The conference highlighted the R20 coalition of partners’ approach for a sustainable renewable energy future. In this regard, the Audiovisual Service of the EU produced a stockshot illustrating different sustainable energy projects across Europe such as wind energy offshore, windfarms, solar energy and bio-ethanol plant.
