Dept. of Energy unveils plans to jumpstart clean energy in the developing world December 14, 2009 GreenBeat December 14, 2009 | Camille Ricketts By far, the most controversial issue at the U.N.’s climate talks in Copenhagen is how the developed world will help industrializing nations reduce greenhouse gas emissions while not sacrificing growth. Most believe this can’t be done, causing countries like China and India to balk at a binding international treaty. Today, the U.S. used the summit’s spotlight to announce its own $85 million plans for bringing advanced and efficient green energy to the developing world under the banner of the Renewables and Efficiency Deployment Initiative (Climate REDI).

As can be expected, the strategy — to be executed in tandem with other developed nations — is wide-ranging and multi-tiered. But the key takeaway is that Climate REDI is designed to help companies in the U.S. — including many in the Silicon Valley — while bringing affordable, clean energy to countries that will be able to compete with coal and oil.
