ABOUT THE EQUINOX COMMUNIQUÉ
Born from a unique, international energy summit of scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and future leaders from around the world, the Equinox Communiqué offers visionary proposals for transformative action on reducing the electricity-related emissions that drive climate change.
The Equinox Communiqué is a brief snapshot of the ideas and visions developed by the Summit participants, who aimed to address the great complexity of transitioning to low-carbon electricity production. It provides a series of immediate, concrete opportunities for action by industry and governments, both locally and internationally.
The preliminary report was released shortly after the conclusion of the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 on June 9, 2011 as a precursor to the more detailed Equinox Blueprint: Energy 2030.
The Equinox Blueprint, to be released in the near future, is aimed at exploring these significant climate and energy issues in depth while offering recommendations for investment and focus, and for the coordination of national and international scientific and engineering efforts which may, over the next 20 years, help address energy challenges in a meaningful way.
