GWEC CEO Steve Sawyer comments on the COP21 results.
Paris represents a 15 trillion USD opportunity for the clean energy industry, ushering in the biggest transformation of the global economy since the industrial revolution.
The very ambitious goals in the text now need to be matched with deeds. The agreement itself doesn’t change anything overnight, but it establishes a solid framework and a ‘floor’ upon which we must build.
Thousands of business executives gathered in Paris were already convinced that renewables are the future; they now have a strong, positive signal, and will move much faster than governments to bring about the clean energy revolution necessary to protect the climate.
