G20 recognises the importance of disruptive low-carbon innovations!

Posted on Posted in Low-carbon innovations, News

Well … almost. The recent G20 ministerial meeting in Japan included the following in their final announcement: “We recognize the importance of quantitative analysis on better understanding future energy demand and the role of innovation driven by digitalization … and the sharing economy”. The SILCI team couldn’t agree more! The G20 added: “We encourage efforts made by the global scientific community … to further refine and develop the full spectrum of economy-wide scenarios for energy and climate models.” Again, there is a strong association here with SILCI project aims … although of course, we can’t claim that correlation is causation!
