Pachauri stresses on R&D to tackle carbon emission
Dubai: Ahead of the Copenhagen summit next
month, Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has asked governments across
the world to encourage research and development in innovation
and technology to tackle carbon emissions.
"We need to invest now in the research & development of
new technologies to guarantee that long-terms goals can be
met," said Pachauri, who will be the keynote speaker at the
upcoming World Future Energy Summit, to be held in Abu Dhabi
from 18-21 January, 2010.
Pachauri, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 on
behalf of IPCC along former US vice president Al Gore,
believes governments must take the first step to achieve
sustainable energy consumption.
This should be achieved by managing demand, leading to
reduced public energy consumption by stimulating lifestyle
changes and attaining higher levels of energy efficiency.
"There is significant scope, at the individual and
community levels, to avoid wasting energy through changes in
behaviour and improving energy efficiency by implementing
appropriate technological solutions.
This must of course all be done alongside a shift towards
use of renewable sources of energy," Pachauri added.
