中新财经2月9日电 (记者 彭大伟)记者9日获悉，联合国环境规划署(UNEP)和社会阿尔法基金会(SAF)发布的一份最新报告探讨了区块链技术如何加速清洁能源转型并助力发展中国家应对气候变化。专家认为，区块链技术是能源和气候创新的关键，但到目前为止，很少有人关注区块链技术如何在发展中国家得到应用。该报告正致力于改变这一局面并开启新机遇。
Zhongxin Finance, February 9 (Reporter Peng Dawei) The reporter was informed on the 9th that a new report released by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Social Alpha Foundation (SAF) explores how blockchain technology can accelerate the transition to clean energy and improve energy efficiency. Help developing countries tackle climate change. Experts believe that blockchain technology is the key to energy and climate innovation, but so far, little attention has been paid to how blockchain technology can be applied in developing countries. The report is working to change that and unlock new opportunities.
According to reports, blockchain is a decentralized distributed ledger database that helps verify and track multi-step transactions. As the core supporting technology of the digital cryptocurrency system represented by Bitcoin, the term blockchain is gradually known to most people, but in fact, it can be used for everything from tracking the sustainability of products to monitoring pollution in real time. to blockchain technology.
The United Nations Development Programme estimates that achieving SDG 7 on energy will require up to $650 billion in renewable energy financing each year. However, renewable energy projects are often plagued by financing shortages, high investment costs and lack of liquidity. Together, these issues have created a shortage of bankable projects. According to the UNEP/Social Alpha Foundation report, the distributed ledger technology of blockchain could provide an improved solution for renewable energy project developers, investors and buyers to conduct compliance due diligence following established international standards A common platform for investigation and fostering collaboration.
"The world needs to halve its greenhouse gas emissions over the next eight years to ensure that the 1.5°C temperature target can be met, while expanding energy supplies and providing access to electricity for hundreds of millions of people." Mark Marc, head of UN Environment's energy and climate division Radka (Mark Radka) cites data from the 2021 Emissions Gap Report. “Blockchain technology can play a role in enabling more accurate load monitoring, generation and distribution in the grid by using data more efficiently,” he added.
