Concrete solutions for a clean future
"The Malaysian Photovoltaic Industry Association (MPIA) is proud to announce that we fully support the FutureIsClean campaign. The Solar Impulse plane project had managed to show the world what the clean energy is capable of when it made long distance trips powered by solar alone. In another development, Cochin International Airport in India had become the world's first ever airport to be powered by solar technology. Indeed 2015 had been a very exciting year for all of us. We hope all these effort will be able to convince the world leaders who gathered at COP21 to make the right decision." Lionel Yap, MPIA Secretary
Since its inception in 2007, MPIA had been pushing for the adoption of solar in Malaysia. We had engaged and partnered with various government bodies, NGOs, businesses and the public to promote solar with many success stories to date. We had seen how the public who at first are skeptical about solar are becoming adopter of solar themselves. At the national level, the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) had also approved 500MW worth of quota for the Net Energy Metering program due to start in 2016. This is an exciting piece of news for Malaysia as through this program, the public will be able to generate their own electricity through solar. This only serve as proof as to how much solar had made progress in this part of the world.
Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg are attempting the first round-the-world solar flight, an adventure to promote the use of clean technologies.
Clean technologies used on the solar aircraft could be used on the ground and reduce 50% of our world’s energy consumption... as of today. But for this, we need political courage and pioneering spirit.
We launched the #futureisclean initiative to create a federation of organizations pushing the replacement of old polluting devices by existing clean technologies.
Just like onboard Solar Impulse, solutions already exist to reduce energy consumption. We have gathered 357 organizations around this initiative. Some of them sent the solutions they wanted to promote at COP21.
The vote is now over, here are the top 5 solutions you voted for!
