I originally shared this article in LinkedIn and hope to get more responses from industry professionals by sharing it with Energy Central Network as well.

Glad you shared it here, Gavin. 

The IEA’s data reveals a stark contrast between trends in ‘advanced economies’, where the body said power-sector emissions “declined to levels last seen in the late 1980s”, and other parts of the world. Coal generation in richer nations was down almost 15% year-on-year thanks to renewables growth and lower demand.

This really does sum up a lot of the issues that arise when international meetings and agreements are looked at and why consensus seems next to impossible to get. Do you see a workable compromise that takes these differences into account coming any time soon?
