European Clean Energy Innovators to Get €100 Million


BRUSSELS, Belgium , October 19, 2018 (ENS) – Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates knows that €100 million can fund a lot of climate-friendly, clean energy research by European innovators, so as founding chairman of a new investment fund, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, Gates is collaborating with the European Commission to provide that support.

Under Gates’ leadership, Breakthrough Energy and the European Commission Wednesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish Breakthrough Energy Europe (BEE), a joint investment fund to help innovative European companies develop and bring “radically new clean energy technologies” to market.

Breakthrough Energy Europe links public funding with long-term risk capital so that clean energy research and innovation can be brought to market more quickly and efficiently.

With a capitalization of €100 million (US$115.2 million), the fund will focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting energy efficiency in the areas of electricity, transport, agriculture, manufacturing, and buildings.

Prop 127's Dramatic Ramp-Up of Clean Energy Mandate Poses Challenge

Under the current, much-lower requirements put in place by the Arizona Corporation Commission in 2006, utilities must generate 15 percent of their electricity from renewable resources by 2025.

In a recent fiscal analysis of Proposition 127, the Arizona Joint Legislative Budget Committee refrained from giving a concrete prediction of the mandate’s financial impact over the 12 next years, based on the many unknown factors.

The JLBC's impact assessment largely deferred to other studies, with the committee writing that the proposition’s “fiscal impact is difficult to quantify in advance, especially since it would not be fully implemented until 2030.”

That’s not exactly true, at least from the perspective of the utilities, because each year's new and higher standard under Prop 127 would need to be fully implemented in that year.

Take Tucson Electric Power, for example. According to spokesperson Joseph Barrios, the southern Arizona utility currently gets about 14 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources. That puts the utility at the required threshold through 2021.

Should intellectual property rights be stripped to stop global warming?

No. Nothing should be done about global warming, especially not taking away people's rights. Any warming is because of fewer sun spots on the sun (sun spots give off less radiation).
