Innovative ways of combating Climate Change by different Countries


Copenhagen, a city in Denmark started an initiative to plant 100,000 new trees by the end of 2025.

The city invested heavily in wind turbines. All that winds helps to generate the city’s electricity.

Every apartment building has eight separate recycling bins and burns their garbage in a new high-tech incinerator.

For every unit of fossil fuels it consumes it needed to sell units of renewable energy.

Brazilis raising the share of renewable sources (wind and solar power) and increase the share of sustainable bio energy (bio fuels and biomass) and expand the use of non-fossil, renewable energy sources (other than hydro) to at least 23% of the country’ energy mix .

Increasing the energy efficiency in the electricity sector by 10% and promoting clean technology and energy efficiency in the industrial and transportation sectors.

Restoring and reforesting 12 million hectares of forests.

Restoring an additional 15 million hectares of degraded pasturelands by 2030.

Curitiba, a sustainable city in Brazil, is setting an example   for the rest of the country. Curitiba recycles 70% of its waste and has an incentive program where cities can exchange recyclables for bus tickets, foods or books.

3. CHILE:-

Chile is the first country in Latin America to set a binding renewable energy generation target that requires that by 2025 at least 20 percent of the country’s energy will come from renewable sources excluding large hydroelectric plants (solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, biomass, and small-hydro).

 Chile also set an ambitious target to generate 70 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, mainly solar and wind, by 2050, a sevenfold increase from current levels.

 To reduce emissions from power generation, Chile approved a carbon tax on thermal power generators of 50 megawatts or more as part of a broader fiscal reform.

 4. INDIA:-

India has set targets to substantially increase its renewable energy capacity, including increasing Its solar capacity to 100 gigawatts by 2022—a twentyfold increase from current levels of 4 gigawatts and increasing its wind power capacity to 60 gigawatts by 2022 from current levels of 23.76 gigawatts.

India is the first developing country to adopt a market based mechanism, “Perform, Achieve and Trade” (PAT),  to improve energy intensity in industries and aims for an emissions reduction of 26 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2015, thus contributing to the national target, and avoiding CO2 emissions from the equivalent of six power plants annually.
