As delegates gather at climate talks in Poland this week, the Spanish will have a new trophy in their hands: a renewable energy super plan that seeks to reverse years of ever rising emissions. Spain’s proposals, set to be taken on by the cabinet in coming weeks, spell out an ambitious target to draw 100 per cent of the whole country’s electricity from renewable’s by 2050. The plan also aims to cut emissions by more than 90 per cent over the same period. “We are a government convinced of the importance of working on positive, co-operative multilateralism, and also taking our share of responsibly on domestic action,” says Teresa Ribera, minister for the ecological transition. Climate change already poses a direct physical threat to Spain. She states that the new government, which came into power in June, aims to decarbonise the economy.
