Enel: "We are committed to achieve 100 per cent CO2-free power generation by 2050"

Governments and non-state actors need to deliver an urgent increase in ambition to ensure the Paris Agreement goals can still be met, according to a new UN assessment.

2017-11-01 12:22:59

The eighth edition of UN Environment's Emissions Gap report, released ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, finds that national pledges only bring a third of the reduction in emissions required by 2030 to meet climate targets, with private sector and sub-national action not increasing at a rate that would help close this worrying gap.

"Enel is committed to achieve 100 per cent CO2-free power generation by 2050 and the pathway we've chosen to reach this target is to create self-sustaining ecosystems where renewable generation is combined with storage and electric mobility within intelligent networks capable of operating and balancing power flows autonomously," said Ernesto Ciorra, Enel Group's Head of Innovation and Sustainability.

"Reducing the global emissions gap on the way to achieving a zero-emission society requires a faster implementation of this new vision of the electricity system through sustainable innovation driven by the open cooperation of all relevant stakeholders, from utilities to research, startups, governments, international bodies and the civil society," said Ciorra. "This transition is proving to be financially as well as environmentally sound and we at Enel are glad to have embarked upon this journey and always looking forward to the future opportunities it will entail."
