Norway launches international energy and climate partnership

At the international climate and energy summit in Oslo, Norway has launched an international energy and climate partnership in support of the UN Secretary-General’s initiative “Sustainable Energy for All”.

The Partnership aims to ensure access to sustainable energy for all and avoid greenhouse gas emissions through the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency. 

 

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg launched the International Energy and Climate Initiative – Energy+ , in the presence of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and other high- level representatives at the two-day international Oslo Energy and Climate Summmit, co-hosted by Norway and the International Energy Agency (IEA).  

 

The International Energy and Climate Initiative – Energy+ is Norway’s contribution to the Secretary-General’s vision for universal energy access, a doubling of energy efficiency and a doubling of the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix by 2030.

 

"We need to build political momentum around the energy for all agenda. The 2012 International Year of Sustainable Energy for All and the Rio+20 summit in June 2012 present us with an historic opportunity”, says the Secretary-General.

 

The Secretary-General has invited leaders from business, government, international organizations and civil society to come together to develop clear actions for all to take – locally, nationally, regionally and globally.

 

Energy+ is inspired by the successful program to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). Through Energy+, developing countries’ efforts to transform the energy sector to achieve universal access to sustainable energy and decrease greenhouse gas emissions by scaling-up access to renewable energy sources and increased energy efficiency will be supported.

 

In turn, this will contribute to energy and job security, improved health, business opportunities for private investors and national economic growth.

 

"New energy investments must be results-based. We already have experiences from our support to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation that this creates the right incentives", says Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

 

Representatives from more than 60 countries, international organizations, business and civil society organisations take part in the conference.
