Philippines Delegation Leader Yeb Sano Speech

Of course, the Philippines have just been hit by the strongest storm in human history, Typhoon Hayan. That gives a lot of urgency to his statement.

As for the substance, he said that the Philippines wants to double their renewable capacity until 2020, and triple it until 2030.

Meanwhile, the coalition talks in Germany between the CDU/CSU and the SPD seem to result in a slowdown. Germany will probably not double capacity until 2020. I will have more to say about this once the results are official.

Just as a preliminary comment: They should be ashamed of themselves, thinking about saving some marginal cost in the short term right after this historical typhoon hit.
