The International Energy Agency recently issued a progress schedule which is aimed at substantially and completely eliminating greenhouse gas emissions until 2050.

According to it, all the countries should produce 70 percent of the world power output with wind power and solar energy by 2050.

It also said that it is important to increase research and development expenses for coping with global warming, including research into hydrogen and the recovery of carbon dioxide in the air, and to promote technical innovation.

The United Nations set a goal for all the member nations to attain carbon neutrality by 2050.

According to a report on renewable energy market in 2021 recently issued by the International Energy Agency, the amount of equipment for generating power with renewables which was used worldwide in 2020 increased by over 45 percent as compared to that in 2019, a record high since 1999.

The report said that the development of renewable energy was encouraged across the world to increase the capacity of renewable energy-based generating equipment by about 280 GW last year, estimating that if the same growth rate is maintained till next year through this year, the power production using renewable energy resources would take 90 percent of the world total power output.

The IEA executive director appealed to the governments of all countries to boost investment in renewable energy technology in line with the developing trend of renewable energy industry.

The international organization clarified that China’s capacity of renewable energy-based generating equipment accounted for over 80 percent of that of the world in 2019 and 2020.

At present, the capacity of renewables-based generating equipment in China is reportedly 930 million kW, making up 42.4 percent of its total capacity of generating equipment.

In Thailand, harmful gas emissions in more than 5 400 factories and enterprises in Bangkok were measured and steps were taken to dispose of production processes causing air pollution late last year.

In Mongolia second Saturdays in May and October are set as tree-planting days to create a social atmosphere of encouraging tree-planting. Pakistan positively pushes forward with a programme for planting about 10 billion trees until 2023.

Positive activities conducted by the international community for environmental protection are welcomed in all countries of the world.
