At EXPO 2017, UN agencies highlight benefits of clean energy for all

13 June 2017 – Showcasing the centrality of the energy sector to global sustainable development challenges, United Nations agencies in Kazakhstan at the EXPO 2017 have urged the global community for new momentum to clean energy.

“I hope EXPO 2017 will advance dialogues between governments, climate scientists and engineers to find practical solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions while generating energy,” said Cihan Sultanoðlu, the UN Commissioner-General for the Organization of Participation at the EXPO, currently underway in the Kazakh capital, Astana.

“We need to maintain, strengthen and support the transition in all possible ways,” she added.
They have also installed interactive models of energy and irrigation systems that are powered by hydro-, solar and the wind power for visitors to get a first-hand experience on how these work.
