LONDON (Reuters) – Britain and India on Tuesday launched a plan to improve connectivity between global power grids to accelerate the global transition to green energy.
Launched during the COP26 climate talks in Scotland, the so-called Green Phase Initiative – A Phase of a Sun is a phase of the project has been supported by more than 80 countries, the UK government said in a statement.
The initiative aims to transform renewable energy into a more affordable and reliable option for all countries by 2030 and is a key contributor to the global goal of ending global warming by 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial standards.
“These interconnected transnational networks will be essential solutions if the world is to move towards a cleaner and greener future,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a statement.
The project is part of a larger plan to accelerate the deployment of “green” technologies at affordable prices, which include more than 70% of the global economy, and the “hackage agenda”.
Announcing the first five goals of the so-called “Glasgow Breakthrough” project, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson set high-level goals for improving clean energy, zero-emission cars, near-zero steel, low-carbon hydrogen and anti-climate agriculture.
“By making clean technology the most attractive, accessible and default option in today’s highly polluting industries, we can reduce emissions worldwide,” Johnson said.
Among other projects to be announced, the Global Energy Alliance for People and the Planet was launched with the first $ 10 billion from sponsors and development banks to support energy transfer in the South.
Meanwhile, the United States and the United Arab Emirates launched AIM4C to promote innovation in sustainable agriculture with the support of an additional investment of $ 4 billion.
The report said the Breakthrough Energy Catalyst project aims to raise $ 30 billion to reduce the cost of clean technology and create markets for everything from green hydrogen to sustainable jet fuel. (Report by William James and Simon Joseph)
