Investing in new climate technologies

On December 2, 2010 EU40 and the WWF celebrated their first collaboration with a huge success. More than 200 people witnessed Commissioner Hedegaard passionately defending the necessity to reduce carbon emissions by investing in new climate technologies and watched the WWF and RWE go neck to neck in a debate on how best to set up a climate friendly energy system. That the largest energy producer on the continent and one of the largest green NGOs do not always see eye to eye is obvious; that both managed to agree on elements of a vision for 2050 gives hope.
