Tony Blair calls for global energy efficiency drive

Tony Blair calls for global energy efficiency drive
Tony Blair has called for global action to improve energy efficiency and help deliver the new technologies required for a low-carbon world.

Announcing the publication of a new report by the Climate Group, the former UK prime minister suggested that 70 percent of the global reductions in carbon dioxide emissions required by 2020 could be delivered through a policy of increased energy efficiency.

Speaking just days before president Barack Obama chairs the Major Economies Forum (MEF), Mr Blair called for more action to be taken on improving the efficiency of lighting, transport and buildings.

Mr Blair noted: "With the necessary decisions now, there is a credible, practical, realistic as well as radical way to act.

"We can set the world on a new path to a low carbon future; the MEF is able to put in place a framework for a successful global accord in Copenhagen in December.”

The Climate Group report, entitled Technology for a Low Carbon Future, suggested that investment in long-term solutions, such as carbon capture and storage, must be delivered now.

It argued that a focus on existing energy efficiency and efforts to prevent deforestation would deliver short-term emissions reductions and the time required to bring next-generation technologies in place.
