The Latin American and Caribbean region produces about 60% of its electricity from green sources and contains one of the cleanest electricity grids in the world. Hydroelectric power generates most of the area's electricity.
As Europe faces an energy crisis, many countries are striving to implement sustainable energy solutions as soon as possible to reduce carbon emissions and improve the quality of life for European citizens. However, recent events have sharpened the need for an emergency plan to ensure Europe's gas supply.
Among the keys to the decarbonization of the electricity sector is the promotion of renewable energies, the electrification of the economy and the increase in energy efficiency, thus developing a clean supply capable of meeting demand.
In 2020, the European Union pledged to invest 430 billion dollars in renewable hydrogen by 2030, with the goal of installing 40 gigawatts of electrolyzers.
To invest in the use of renewable energies is to invest in the well-being and future of the planet, which after years of pollution already shows the consequences. Therefore, here are examples of both types of energy to know the difference and be part of the change
It's no secret that socially responsible investing now occupies centre stage amongst investors and asset managers. How can we implement socially responsible investing processes?
Expected investments for 2030 are around one trillion dollars; however, lower installation costs indicate that future investments could be higher than expected.
Although they are not synonyms, there are some types of renewable energies that are also clean, they are the best alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear energy, which besides being highly polluting, come from non-renewable sources.
If there is a fact that shows us the importance of living in a sustainable environment and focusing on the environment is that 29 July was the Earth Overshoot Day, i.e. the day when humanity consumed all the resources available for that year. The current pace is increasing and growing exponentially every single year.
"Sustainable development" is a relatively new concept and was first defined in 1987, in the Brundtland Report. A report that recognised that social development was taking place at a very high cost to the environment.
Different opinions exist regarding the causes of climate change: Some experts state that temperature increases are a normal part of the Earth’s cycle, whilst others interpret this phenomenon as man’s doing.
