U.S. Solar Industry Applauds Creation of Global Clean Tech Fund

"America’s solar industry applauds the world’s government and business leaders for their commitment in Paris to funding clean energy research."

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Following is a comment from Rhone Resch, president and chief executive officer of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), on the creation of a multi-billion dollar clean energy fund, announced today at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21).


"America's solar industry applauds the world's government and business leaders for their commitment in Paris to funding clean energy research. While it's clear that more needs to be done to tackle the world's global warming challenge, the formation of this clean technology fund sends an irrefutable message that use of zero carbon energy sources, such as solar energy, must be the norm if we are to take meaningful steps to halt rising temperatures. Solar energy has contributed to lower greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. power sector over the last 10 years. If we are to have a realistic hope of continuing greenhouse gas reduction, greater deployment of 21st century solar technologies - both in the United States and around the world - is absolutely critical. We look forward to working with President Obama, the business leaders who have stepped forward to address global warming, and leaders of all nations as they seek ways to deploy solar energy, and other low and no carbon sources, to reduce carbon emissions while enabling their economies to grow."
