The next decade will be a defining one for climate change, both in mitigation and adaptation. We are determined to use our business to accelerate the transition to renewable energy, while also using our expertise to help with adaptation efforts.
十大靠谱网赌一直在生产可再生能源 一个多世纪以来, primarily through the abundant resource of Norwegian hydropower. 然而, over the last twenty years we have expanded our focus to include wind, 太阳能, district heating and gas across 17 different countries.
Going forward we will use our renewable energy expertise and capitalise on the shrinking costs of 太阳能 and wind to connect more people to renewable energy. We will continue to use our strengths from flexible hydropower to help balance the inherently variable sources of wind and 太阳能 and connect more types of end-users to renewable power sources.
到2025年，十大靠谱网赌将只投资可再生能源, quadrupling our capacities in 太阳能 and wind from 2018 levels.
We have been making clean energy possible for over a century, long before climate change was a crisis – and we’re the only company of our size to invest 100 per cent of our growth entirely in renewables. Pictured is a man with a turbine runner at Aura power plant in 挪威.
让地球的温度保持在临界点以下, 满足日益增长的需求, and close the energy gap for the near one billion people without access to electricity, 可再生能源不能成为解决方案的一部分. 他们一定是解决方案. The energy sector is responsible for around three quarters of global greenhouse gas emissions. Transitioning to a renewable energy system is therefore an imperative part of climate change mitigation throughout the world.
十大靠谱网赌还需要适应气候变化. Our core business activities will be impacted by a changing physical climate and policy landscape. 自然资源可得性的变化(例如.g. precipitation, run-off and wind) can influence the profitability of our assets significantly. Future climate-related regulatory frameworks will also have an impact on our current and future operations and business opportunities.
Although we are a major provider of renewable power and heat, we also directly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, 主要是通过十大靠谱网赌的燃气发电厂. We see gas as an energy source for a transition period, where gas-fired power plants will replace coal and by this be a benefit for the environment. As renewable capacity is further expanded, the need for gas-fired plants will be reduced. We will therefore not expand our gas capacity further.
另外，十大靠谱网赌还有CO2 emissions related to other operation and construction activities. Statkraft has signed the Climate Neutral Now Pledge, an initiative launched by UN Climate Change. 作为其中的一部分, emission reduction targets have been set and unavoidable emissions are offset through certified emissions reductions.
In the future, more extreme weather patterns will place water resources under increased stress. We are therefore working with integrated models for water management to prepare our hydropower installations for expected changes in precipitation and weather patterns. Our water management practices can also help mitigate and manage floods due to extreme weather conditions. We also participate in national and international projects to continuously improve the understanding of how climate change will affect hydrological resources.
气候政策对国家有很大的影响. 十大靠谱网赌遵循国家, European and global climate policy development closely to assess how they will impact us. It is also critical to understand the development of renewable energy and related technologies, as this will impact the pace of the energy transition and our commercial position. 因此, we invest significant resources in market analysis to have a robust basis for future investment and operation decisions.
