Good morning, from Rome !

My warm thanks to:

 The YENADER Colleagues for the invitation to speak during the Digital Summit.

 Ms Hazal COŞKUN Secretary General / Environmental Energy Association - Karşıyaka/İZMİR, for acting as link and for facilitating the preparatory work.

 All of you participating today.

The climate crisis and the role of renewable energies - Digital Summit – 12 May 2021

Kyoto Club is an Italian non-profit organisation founded in February 1999. Its current 132 members are business companies, associations and local municipalities and governments engaged for the greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the Kyoto Protocol, by the EU ones for 2030 and by the December 2015 Paris Agreement.

To reach its goals and to support bio, green and circular economy patterns, Kyoto Club promotes awareness-raising initiatives, information and training to foster energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, waste reduction and recycling and sustainable agriculture and mobility.

Our activities are based on the following key strategies:

 The increase of the environmental dimension in business culture and the dissemination of best practices.

 The promotion of eco-efficiency policies and of the use of renewable energy sources.

 The reduction of greenhouse gases emissions in Italian urban areas.

 The development of new eco-compatible productions and the investments in technological innovation.

 The mainstreaming of environmental management systems, eco and energy labeling.

 The dialogue and networking among institutions and companies.

Towards Italian, EU and UNFCCC public decision-makers, Kyoto Club puts forward policy proposals to make institutional decisions more and more environment and climate friendly.

At the international level Kyoto Club is part of

The non-profit European Alliance to Save Energy (EU-ASE), based in Brussels (Belgium) and whose Members and Partners include some of Europe’s leading multinational companies, a prominent cross-party group of European politicians and energy efficiency campaigners from across Europe. EUASE’s vision is of a future where energy efficiency and end-users empowerment are central to the EU energy system and are fundamental drivers for job creation, sustainable growth, competitiveness, energy productivity, innovation, energy security and decarbonisation. Kyoto Club is represented in the EUASE Board of Managers.

The European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (eceee), with the Secretariat in Stockholm (Sweden) is a membership-based non-profit association and Europe’s largest and oldest NGO dedicated to energy efficiency. It generates and provides evidence-based knowledge and analysis of policies, facilitating co-operation and networking. eceee Members are found among private and public organisations, universities and research institutions, as well as among all those professionals from all sectors who share eceee’s energy efficiency priority goals. Kyoto Club is represented in the eceee Board of Managers.

Transport & Environment's (T&E) is Europe's leading clean transport campaign group, whose vision is a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate and environment. Since its creation 30 years ago, T&E has shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws. It is a Brussels-based non- profit organisation and politically independent, combining the power of robust, science- based evidence and a deep understanding of transport with memorable communications and impactful advocacy.

The climate crisis: where do we stand ?

Reaching 1.5°C of global warming – the desirable limit agreed under the December 2015 Paris Agreement – might be closer than one thinks. It is likely to happen between 2030 and the early 2050s.

 Climate change is here, it is dangerous and it is going to get much worse.

 Every year matters and every choice matters.

 The situation is critical NOW: we are rapidly approaching points of no return – so ambitious must increase substantially.

 Saving the planet requires a fundamental rethinking of current economic models.

The Paris Agreement:

Turkey signed the Agreement on 22 April 2016, but – one of the six remaining countries to do so - still did not ratify it:

https://unfccc.int/process/the-paris-agreement/status-of-ratification

The EU: in spite of significant progresses at the policy level, the EU and its Member States are behind schedule in achieving the Paris Agreement goals.

We respectfully call:

On the Turkish Authorities to proceed without further ado, and before next November’s COP 26 in Glasgow, with the Paris Agreement ratification: also to take advantage of the huge innovation, economic and employment opportunities offered by decarbonisation.

On the EU officials to show more ambition, as also the scientific community, notably the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, keeps asking and finally act avoiding all kinds of green-washing so that the EU – ideally together with Turkey - may indeed become the world’s first climate- neutral continent by 2050.

We are concentrated in fighting Covid-19, still: climate keeps changing at unprecedented speed.

As it happened with the virus, we should avoid finding ourselves unprepared in coping with the effects of the climate crisis.

+ 1.5°C

global net anthropogenic CO2 emissions must decline by about 45% (40-60%) from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching net zero by 2050 (2045–2055)

+ 2°C

CO2 emissions should decline by about 20% (10-30%) by 2030 and reach net zero around 2075 (2065–2080)

If we are serious about addressing climate change consequences – and using the opportunities in terms of job creation, healthy economic growth and research & innovation - the role of renewable energies in the next 10 years will be crucial.

The challenge is the substitution of current fossil fuels – all of them, including gas – with renewable ones, without forgetting negawatts, i.e. energy efficiency, which, thanks also to digitalisation developments, may alone account for up to 30% savings.

Renewables could make up two-thirds of the energy mix by 2050, with significantly improved energy intensity.

The issue is not anymore technical / technological, but rather regulatory: if decision-makers decide to go for zero-emissions, this will be possible and realistic, particularly in areas like the Mediterranean which is gifted wityh plenty of renewable energy sources. As civil society organisations we have a big role to play to make this happen.

Avoiding, like in the current EU discussion on investments of billions for hydrogen, any change-everything-not-to-change- anything: so-called green hydrogen is of course fine, but so-called grey and blue hydrogen are not, as they would be produced from fossil fuels.
