The restart of Japan’s nuclear power reactors is “critical” to the success of the country’s energy policy, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). However, it says nuclear power can only be restored provided that the highest safety standards can be met and public trust regained.

Medellín wins global award for its commitment to sustainable mobility
Medellín draws the attention of the world for its development of multimodal public transport. What began in November 1995 with the opening of Metro, became a firm intention of moving towards an innovative mobility that includes marginalized populations, gathers other transport systems and advance to be a sustainable city.
That was how after Metrocables, the escalators in the commune 13, the BRT system (Metroplús), the tram Ayacucho and public bike system EnCicla arrived to the city.
According to the organizers of the Mobiprize Award, “it was key to have made a joint application between several entities, which was a sign of good articulated mobility between different systems.” Besides the integration through the Civica card, the technological advances in railways and the social impact they have had on citizens also influenced the decision.
In a ceremony in New Delhi on March, 2016, Medellín will be publicly rewarded. A video that was used to compete for this honour and commits more the city to continue taking steps towards sustainable mobility will be shown.
#ClimateChange ==> “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed.”

Building on the momentum created by last December’s Paris Climate Change Summit, France’s minister of Ecology and Energy recently announced plans to pave 1000 kilometers (621 miles) of road with solar panels over the next five years. These solar roads will be able to provide enough electricity for about 8 percent of the French population, or over 5 million people. They could also power street lights and electric cars.
Denmark has set a new world record for wind energy generation with nearly 40 per cent of its overall electricity covered by wind power
With power outages on the rise, and more extreme weather events, the U.S. electrical grid is showing its age and vulnerability. New York state is pushing to upgrade its grid and one project is a statewide competition to develop community microgrids.
