Let’s talk about the 1.5°C one of the key goal in the Paris Agreement.
The long-term temperature goal (Temperature Goal, or LTTG) sets the objective of the Paris Agreement and establishes 1.5°C as the warming limit in the long term. The purpose of the goal is to ‘reduce the risks and impacts of climate change’ as assessed in the science of the time, not to achieve a mere objective in terms of a temperature number.
The most asked question: «Have we already reached the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit? Or how close are we?»
The simple answer is no. According to the IPCC we might reach or exceed 1.5°C warming between 2030 and 2050 if we follow current emissions trends.
In the Paris Agreement, governments committed to keep global warming ‘well below 2 degrees Celsius’, and ‘make efforts’ to keep it below 1.5ºC. These replaced the previous politically-agreed target of 2ºC.
According to Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit research we would like to show you the difference between a 1.5°C and 2°C (have a look at the Infographics).
Therefore, EUEA promotes increasing the share of clean renewable energy use and energy efficiency.
EUEA is a strong industry association that unites well-known international and national Ukrainian investors with a total investment of over 3.5 billion Euros in renewable energy in Ukraine for the construction of over 2.7 GW of power plants from renewable sources, using the sun, wind and biomass.
EUEA is an independent non-profit organization open to all stakeholders in the Ukrainian Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy (RE) sectors who want to work constructively with like-minded members to contribute to the gainful and transparent development of these markets in Ukraine, through the promotion of fair and sustainable business practice, raising of public awareness of energy issues, and by influencing government energy policy.
