Concrete solutions for a clean future
«World Bioenergy Association (WBA) is glad to support the global campaign FutureIsClean. It is imperative to showcase the success of renewable energy technologies on a global and region levels, and the solar impulse flight is a significant achievement. All the renewable energy technologies including solar, wind, bioenergy, geothermal, hydro etc. should come together to ensure a positive outcome is achieved at COP21. We wish the campaign a success.» - Dr Heinz Kopetz, President of WBA
The World Bioenergy Association (WBA) is the global organization dedicated to supporting and representing the wide range of actors in the bioenergy sector. The purpose of WBA is to promote the increasing utilization of bioenergy globally in an efficient and sustainable way and to support the business environment for the bioenergy. Since its foundation in May 2008, WBA has been working to address a number of pressing issues including certification, sustainability criteria, standardization, bioenergy promotion, and the debates about bioenergy's impact on food, land-use and water supply.
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!
