More on this equity

The third and final panel at the inaugural Edison Growth Conference 2024 covered decarbonisation. The need to fund the decarbonisation of the global economy is a critical issue. The requirement for this remains strong; in a recent survey, only 6% of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists believed the Paris climate agreement target of 1.5 degrees in global warming would be met (with half anticipating at least 3 degrees). The panel discussed issues including the current markets, policy initiatives, the difference of price versus public valuation and the challenges of funding the growth needed. They drew on contributions from a broad section of the renewables industry, including wind (Ørsted), solar (Foresight Solar Fund), Marine Fuels additives (SulNOx) and broader sector investment (Premier Miton Global Renewables Trust).
