The different energy outcomes that countries desire from COP28 negotiations
Carbon Brief has published a list of delegates’ positions on various issues that will be discussed at COP28. Since phasing out fossil fuels and ramping up renewable energy are hot topics at this year’s COP; we will look at some of the takes on various energy issues.
On the first day of COP28, we saw the Indian government insist that coal will remain India’s main source of energy for years to come. Almost three-quarters of India’s electricity generation comes from coal, and currently, 17 gigawatts of coal-based power generation capacity are being added. Vinay Mohan Kwatra, India’s foreign secretary has said that “Coal is, and would, remain an important part of India’s energy needs”. [iii]
