No silver bullet to combat climate change: IEA chief

Mandil set a target of an early cut of a billion tonnes of emissions per year and said a full range of measures — which he said included renewable energy, carbon storage, nuclear power and energy efficiency — should be harnessed.

Mandil said that to avoid one billion tonnes of greenhouse gases a year, the world would need to replace 300 convention coal-fired power plants with zero emission electricity generation every year, or build 150 one-gigawatt nuclear power plants.

That is also the equivalent of multiplying the United States’s current solar power capacity by about 1,300 every year or 200 times the US wind farm capacity.
