Expectations high in build up to COP21
With the US and China making the right noises and a reformed approach, there are signs that the climate change summit in Paris could yield better results than previous efforts. The renewables sector is well-placed to benefit, but much still has to be clarified.
The target has been set — a worldwide agreement to limit greenhouse-gas emissions by 2030 to a level that will hold global warming to no more than 2oC above the pre-industrial era. Representatives of the world's 196 nations will gather in Paris at the end of this month for the 21st meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) to thrash out how it might be done.
