The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

In this edition, some controversial topics are discussed. According to the IEA ¨rising incomes and population will push energy needs higher¨ and ¨some key trends are pointing in worrying directions: CO2 emissions rebounded to a record high, energy efficiency of global economy worsened for the 2nd straight year and spending on oil imports is near record highs¨ On a more positive note, the IEA states that ¨new efficiency policies bring results, but the savings potential remains large even in 2035.¨

The European Solar Days successfully promote the use of a free unlimited renewable energy source available everywhere to everyone to generate electricity as well as heating and cooling: the SUN. The organisation of annual "Solar Day" events on a national level aims to raise public awareness of intelligent energy solutions and behaviours, particularly for Solar Thermal and Photovoltaics.

"Our vision is for this tool to become a dynamic 'Google' of material properties, which continually grows and changes as more users come on board to analyze the results, verify against experiments and increase their knowledge," says Kristin Persson, a Berkeley Lab chemist and one of the founding scientists behind the Materials Project. "So many scientists can benefit from this type of screening. Considering the demand for innovative clean energy technology we needed most of these materials yesterday."

New materials are crucial to building a clean energy economy—for everything from batteries to photovoltaics to lighter weight vehicles. This project will create a database identifying precise properties of hundreds of thousands of compounds (metals, ceramics, plastics, etc.), an index that could significantly reduce product development times and increase the success rate of data mining, leading to better products.

Achim Steiner, the German-Brazilian head of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), has warned of a lack of bold political leadership in the run-up to the Rio+20 conference on sustainable development. Speaking after the successful conclusion of the UN's COP10 conference of the Basel convention on hazardous waste in the Colombian city of Cartagena, Steiner said that "if the conference is going to be a success, it will above all require commitment and movement from political leaders, presidents and prime ministers", which had so far not been forthcoming.
