    Russia kick-starts renewables funding

    Russia, the largest oil-producing country in the world, is increasing the share of renewables in its energy mix. By 2020, the country plans to meet 2.5 percent of its energy needs with renewable energy sources compared with the mere 0.8 percent they cover today.

    Reactions: World Energy Outlook 2013

    “Renewables will win through in the end”

    The World Energy Outlook (WEO), published annually by the International Energy Agency, provides the most comprehensive overview of global developments in the energy sector. We asked energy experts from environmental organisations and political groups about what they expect from the 2013 edition of the WEO, and about the issues currently dominating the global energy debate.

    2030 targets

    Green Paper Blues

    In March 2013, the European Commission published a green paper aimed at stirring up the debate on the development of European energy and climate policies until 2030. In the past, such papers always preceded adoption of binding measures that turned out to be milestones for the development of renewable energy in the EU. But judging by the reactions to the Commission’s green paper from various member states and non-governmental actors, this time might be different.

    World Energy Outlook 2013

    IEA forecasts 3.6C rise in temperatures

    Fracking, soaring energy prices, climate change: the World Energy Outlook 2013, published by the International Energy Agency (IEA), paints a grim picture of the situation in the energy sector. The report expects global demand for energy to have risen by around a third by 2035. In spite of the continued expansion of renewables, fossil fuels will still account for over 75 percent of the energy mix and be responsible for some two thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions. Limiting global warming to 2C over the coming decades will therefore drift further and further out of reach.

    EU caps biofuels

    The amount of first-generation biofuels – those made from plant or animal feedstocks – that can be counted towards the EU’s biofuel targets will be lowered in the future. That was the recent decision by the European Parliament on legislation proposed by the European Commission.

    2013 elections

    What now for Germany?

    The German election campaign badly damaged the image of efforts to switch to renewables. Yet current studies show that renewables create huge amounts of value added – and are popular with the public. Will the new German government act more wisely now that the FDP is no longer involved?

    A renewables law

    A joint study commissioned by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, the World Future Council and the UK branch of Friends of the Earth has concluded that an energy feed-in law based on Germany’s Renewable Energy Sources Act would help African countries boost economic performance and expand renewable energies.
