From Rome to Glasgow
- Nov 2, 2021 10:14 am GMT
The G20 finished and we heard already a lot about the climate. Now we are with more climate focus in Glasgow.
The USA was/is well represented on both events!
The COP26 has the focus on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) or how to finalise the Paris Rulebook (2015) between the nations.
On ukcop26.org/cop26-goals we can read the Nr 1 Goal: Secure global net zero by mid-century (2050 disappeared because RU and CN have 2060 in mind) and keep 1.5 degrees within reach. How can we do that? According to the website many important things like coal, deforestation, EVs and Renewable Energy are mentioned, but a search of “Energy Efficiency” gives 0 results.
Again we note that Energy Efficiency is still in the shadow! It is less appealing to most of us, because it is vague, exactly because of its multifaceted character. And yet, it contains a plethora of different solutions, which together ensure a lot of avoided greenhouse gases and at the same time many excellent investment opportunities.
How can we exploit this forgotten source, the “Invisible Fuel”? My opinion is to build a sound basis of human resources around this opportunity. More people, which today are already within the working force and get to know this area in the next years will ensure that the hidden Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECOs) are revealed.
That is the reason that I advocate capacity building in Energy Management, not only for specialist Energy Managers, but even more for general technical employees. These are already present within the economy and should become more literate in Energy Efficiency. Only in this way the Invisible Fuel will be found everywhere and show its enormous potential.
I hope this will not be forgotten in Glasgow.
