Fusion makes its introduction in COP24
COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of
the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
(UNFCCC) which commenced in 1994 and has near-universal membership today. The
Conference of the Parties (COP) is the supreme body convention, and it consists
of the representatives of the Parties. The COP takes decisions which are
necessary to ensure the effective implementation of the provisions of the
Convention and regularly reviews the implementation of these provisions. COP24
will take place in Katowice, Poland, from 2-14 December 2018.
Change – The New Economy” is the key publication for COP as it provides the
stage for world leaders, government and NGO representatives to present their
vision, as well as for scientists, experts and companies to offer technological
solutions for the future. The publication is released a few weeks before the
conference. In this year’s edition, Johannes Schwemmer, F4E Director,
advocates in favour of fusion as an “abundant, safe and sustainable
energy for the future”, underlines the importance of ITER as “an essential step
to binging the power of the sun to earth”, and highlights the role of the EU in
the quest for fusion energy.
