ACORE Calls For Global Renewable Energy Standard


During the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP16) currently under way in Cancun, Mexico, American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) President Michael Eckhart called for a global renewable energy standard (G-RES) of 25% renewable energy by 2025.

Eckhart called on the International Renewable Energy Agency to be designated the lead agency to support implementation of the agreement.

‘The G-RES shall provide for two implementing mechanisms: direct installation of renewable energy systems sufficient to meet the goal, and the sale/purchase of global renewable energy certificates between nations,’ explained a draft resolution presented by ACORE.
