Quotes

"Our aim is to give the right signal to the market and encourage further investments in energy saving technologies to the benefit of businesses, consumers and the environment."
The Commission's own research "shows efficiency could also create three-and-a-half million jobs, while helping tackle climate change" it said, adding: "It's a no-brainer."
"We have to try to reform the emissions trading system," says De Grandpré. "After all, it's here to stay until 2050 and we need it, because it is the main instrument for reducing CO2."
"For a modern (high-efficiency) coal-burning power plant, CO2 capture using an amine-based scrubber increases the cost of electricity generation by approximately 40-70 per cent while reducing emissions per kilowatt-hour by about 85 per cent" the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned almost a decade ago ("IPCC Special Report on Carbon Capture and Storage" 2005)
