COP2s objective is to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. The agreement should limit global temperature increase to 2°C above pre-industrial times.
The energy sector is responsible for some 60% of global emissions, making it a top priority for climate action. The European Commission’s department for energy, DG Energy, will be at COP21 showcasing the achievements of Europe’s renewable energy policies and industry in the fight against climate change.
Renewables will, for the first time at a UN climate conference, take centre stage through a series of high profile events taking place as part of the ‘renewable energy track’. The events will show how renewable energy is the fastest, cleanest, most-reliable and most economical way to meet climate goals.
Events co-organised by DG Energy:
