Earth Day is celebrated today, April 22, 2011, in the world and is a good cause for trend analysis and action undertaken on a global level with the aim of reducing the negative effects on the environment of society in general.
Over the past year, Energis followed the development and investments inÂ renewable energy as one of the most efficient tools for positive action onÂ climate change and these observations were presented in the framework of theÂ first year of Energis. Renewable energy is the fastest growing energy sector andÂ one of the areas which is least affected by economic crisis in 2010.
Remarkable development of almost all renewable energy sources in the pastÂ year shows that the race for the “free” energy global priority. Thus,Â in the European Union new installed capacity of renewable energy is over 60% ofÂ the total installed capacity of all energy sources in 2010 while otherÂ countries such as China and the United States showed significant results.
We are observing individual energy sources; wind power is significantlyÂ leading to a new installed capacities with a total of 38 GW. China aloneÂ installed over 33% of the total global installed wind power in the past yearÂ that was a record year for solar energy with new 7 GW of installed capacity, ofÂ which half is installed in Germany. All other sources, particularly biomass and
biogas, recorded significant growth particularly in regions with favorableÂ natural and economic conditions for the development of these energy sources.
Very little has been done in this potentially very lucrative field inÂ Bosnia and Herzegovina in the past year. The Federation adopted a Decree on theÂ Use of Renewable Energy and Cogeneration, which was changed by amendments inÂ March 2011 and will come into force in early May this year. This regulation isÂ a good basis for the development of this sector in BiH. Center Energis willÂ make considerable efforts for the current year to become the year of renewableÂ sources in BiH.
Renewable energy sources can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissionsÂ and therefore has a direct positive effect on climate change. In theÂ celebration of Earth Day, the emphasis placed on promoting the use of energyÂ from renewable sources which are supported by members of the European Union asÂ well as all other Annex 1 Parties of the Kyoto Protocol.
Earth Day is the name of two holidays that are marked in spring and to 20Â March and 22 April. The purpose of celebrating Earth Day is to draw attentionÂ to global environmental problems with the possibility of action to reduce humanÂ impact on the planet and to introduce measures that will ensure sustainableÂ development. This year’s Earth Day marks the fortieth anniversary of the largeÂ number organizations worldwide to pressure on the governing structure with theÂ aim of passing legislation that will address in a comprehensive, fair andÂ realistic way to work on improving the global environmental situation.
