DOHA, Qatar - Monday, December 3rd 2012 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The World Energy Council’s (WEC) annual Energy Sustainability Index reveals that most of the over 90 countries assessed are still far from achieving fully sustainable energy systems.

Released at COP-18 in Doha, the Index is part of WEC’s 2012 World Energy Trilemma report, "Time to get real – the case for sustainable energy policy”, which ranks countries on their climate and energy performance. It finds that most countries still have not managed to balance the conflicting pressures of what WEC calls the ‘energy trilemma’.

The study has also interviewed WEC’s global industry leader community on what they need from policymakers in order to bring sustainable energy to the world’s 7 billion people.

Joan MacNaughton, Executive Chair of the study:

"Ultimately it is the business community who best understands what works in practice and who will make the crucial investment decisions. We ar ... Read more »

DOHA, Qatar - Monday, December 3rd 2012

(BUSINESS WIRE/ ME Newswire)-- The Ecosystem Services Unit of Winrock International (WI) and Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) today announced they have reached scientific consensus on gross carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from tropical deforestation. The analysis provides a crucial piece of information that now allows policymakers to confidently set targets for emissions reductions based on scientifically derived benchmarks.

The new consensus on CO2 emissions from gross tropical deforestation emerges from analysis of two independent peer-reviewed studies released by WI and WHRC earlier in 2012 in Science and Nature Climate Change, respectively. These two original studies (which were not coordinated) initially appeared to differ widely on the question of global gross emissions from tropical deforestation. But after the two research teams came together to discuss and investigate their individual findings, they discovered that the ini ... Read more »
