IEA releases Sustainable Recovery Plan with strong focus on hydropower modernisation | International Hydropower Association | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and economic crisis being felt across the world, today the IEA released its Sustainable Recovery Plan.

It seeks to show governments what they can do to boost economic growth, create jobs and put global greenhouse gas emissions into structural decline. 

IHA Chief Executive Eddie Rich welcomed the report: “Trillions of dollars will be spent by governments on the economic recovery. As the report demonstrates, sustainable hydropower can not only deliver long term cheap and clean energy, but also tens of thousands of skilled jobs with the right support. It should be near the top of the shopping list.”

Cars and coal help drive 'strong' CO2 rise in 2018

Cars and coal help drive 'strong' CO2 rise in 2018 | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
A booming global market for cars has helped drive CO2 emissions to an all-time high in 2018, say researchers.

The main factor in the near 3% rise has been coal use in China, driven by government efforts to boost a flagging economy.

But emissions from cars, truck and planes using fossil fuels continue to rise in all parts of the world

Renewables have also grown this year, but are not keeping pace with the CO2 rise.

“We are putting on the table a road-map of how to get out this crisis in better shape, [meaning] a much more modern, cleaner, more resilient energy system, while energy policies give a boost to economic growth, and help to create new jobs.”

Estonia needs a plan – and support – to get rid of its dirty oil shale

Estonia needs a plan – and support – to get rid of its dirty oil shale | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
The need for a transition to sustainable energy is widely felt in Estonia, but after twenty years of talking, Estonia’s dirty oil shale industry is still carrying on. In fact, thanks to lower taxes, a boom in oil shale mining is expected. Estonian Green Movement, a member of Bankwatch, recently presented the national parliament with a proposal for a strategic oil shale exit plan. According to Teet Randma, national campaigner for Bankwatch in Estonia, the only way reform could be successful is by ensuring a “just transition” for oil shale workers, possibly with support from the EU.
