The director-general of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Francesco La Camera, said Wednesday that the production of green energy must be tripled by 2030 to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
“The declared energy transition has not yet met its objective. The accelerated introduction of renewables and progress demand that the world keep pace with them to meet the commitment to limit warming to 1.5 degrees,” La Camera said at the 15th KazEnergy Eurasian Forum in the Kazakh capital, Astana.
Therefore, he added, the task is to “triple the power of renewable energy sources by 2030.”
La Camera said that in order to achieve the goal, it is necessary to increase the capacity of green energy production by 1,000 gigawatts annually.
He also indicated that thanks to the new capacity put into operation since 2020, fuel costs for electricity production were reduced last year by 520 billion dollars. EFE
