UN Sees Global Role for Renewable Energy

From UPI

Access to sustainable energy resources is vital to sustainable development, which is a fundamental concern for the United Nations, the secretary-general said.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a message to delegates gathered at a weeklong energy summit under way in Abu Dhabi. The meeting represents the third session of the International Renewable Energy Agency assembly.

IRENA aims to promote widespread and increased use of clean energy resources from hydropower to geothermal technology.

Ban, in his statement, said his sustainable energy initiative aims to encourage governments, the public and the private sector to get behind the low-carbon transformation under way across the globe.
