Innovation needed for low carbon society



Innovation needed for low carbon society
Innovation will be necessary in order to move toward a low carbon society, according to MEPs.

The European Parliament has approved a "comprehensive roadmap to fight climate change", which features a range of recommendations in energy policy, transport and industry.

MEPs adopted proposals to cut carbon emissions by 80 per cent by 2050, meet 60 per cent of energy needs through renewables and make energy savings of 35 per cent by boosting efficiency.

These targets will only be met if there is technological and policy innovation as well as behaviour change, according to Karl-Heinz Florenz, whose report was approved by the Parliament.

He said: "A low-carbon society is possible only with an increased investment in research, development and innovation. In the end we will also have to change our lifestyle and make taking care of the environment a core value."

His report also included incentives for biomass and local crops.

Another report, drawn up by French MEP Anne Laperrouze, called for transmission networks between member states to have a ten per cent interconnection capacity.
