Renewables Leaders Asked: "What's The Best We Can Hope for in 12 Months?"
From a 100% renewable world by 2050 to Britain's legally-binding commitment to 50% CO2 cuts by 2025, we have plenty medium- and long-term commitments and predictions for a clean energy economy, but what about the short-term? Renewable Energy World asked leaders in the clean energy industry to outline what the very best is that we can hope for in the next 12 months. From GE's argument that natural gas and renewables will be seen as allies, not competitors, to a hope that EU countries will jointly agree on a unified approach to both energy security and emissions reductions, it makes for interesting reading. But the relatively limited ambitions of everybody's answers are yet another reminder that the struggle for a sustainable economy is a marathon, not a sprint.
