G7 Summit Sets Goal to Decarbonize World Economy

On the final day of the 41st G7 summit, which was held in Germany on June 7th and 8th, the leaders of the industrialized nations resolved to “decarbonize” the world economy by the end of the century, which will largely be accomplished by phasing out the use of fossil fuels. Although they do not plan to set binding goals until  a conference scheduled later this year in Paris, the participants did agree to back the recommendations of the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change, and work to reduce global greenhouse emissions at the upper end of a range of 40% to 70% by 2050 relative to a 2010 baseline.

As we enter what might be the beginning of the end of the fossil fuel age, with the attendant challenges of developing low-carbon energy systems, keep in mind that ANTARES has over 20 years of experience in successfully implementing cost-effective renewable energy solutions.
