The aim of the professional meeting was to assess how the knowledge concentrated in the higher education institution, especially the meteorological, climatological and energy geographic skills, can be utilized in strategic planning.
According to him, in order to achieve the complete climate neutrality set for 2050, it is essential to implement such developments as the green vision of the Mátra Power Plant, which includes the most significant Hungarian climate protection and regional development project.
The encouragement of the further expansion of renewable energy sources and the modernization of the energy efficiency and heating systems of buildings also deserve increased attention. The capacity of the 6,000-megawatt solar power plant, originally planned for 2030, will be available within two years, and more than double the previously agreed capacity may be available in the next decade, writes MTI.
According to László Palkovics, the use of nuclear energy is also essential for achieving climate policy goals. The Ministry is already dealing with the possibility of further extension of the operating time of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant, which could be related to increasing the efficiency of the facility and introducing new energy storage solutions.
The Green Bus Program aims to improve the quality of life
One of the cornerstones of a radical reduction in CO2 emissions is the greening of transport, which is responsible for a fifth of greenhouse gas emissions. The Green Bus Program launched under the Climate and Nature Conservation Action Plan, together with the removal of the best polluting buses as soon as possible, also aims to improve the quality of life in the city.
More than 50,000 of the green license plates now run on domestic roads, most of them purely electric. The head of the ministry called it an important result that a new decision was made not to phase out internal combustion engines for new cars in 2035, because the principle of carbon neutrality can also be met with alternative combustion engines running on alternative fuels, MTI writes according to a TIM statement.
