Selon une nouvelle étude, l'Allemagne aurait investi 37 milliards EUR, soit 1,5 % de son PIB, pour réduire l'impact du changement climatique

-- En 2012, les entreprises et les ménages allemands ont contribué à hauteur de 95 % du financement total lié au climat en Allemagne. KfW Bankengruppe et les incitations gouvernementales ont joué un rôle fondamental.

BERLIN, 30 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) a publié aujourd'hui une nouvelle étude qui offre la première vue d'ensemble complète sur la manière dont les entreprises, les ménages et le gouvernement allemands financent l'énergie renouvelable et l'efficacité énergétique. Le rapport intitulé « The German Landscape of Climate Finance » (Contexte du financement lié au climat en Allemagne) montre qu'en 2012 l'Allemagne a investi 1,5 % de son PIB, soit 37 milliards EUR, dans des mesures visant à réduire l'impact du changement climatique.

Les capitaux privés contribuent considérablement aux investissements liés au climat en Allemagne. En 2010, la majorité du financement lié au climat (22 milliards EUR) provenait d'entreprises issues de tous les secteurs de l'économie, notamment des agriculteurs, des services publics liés à l'énergie et des entreprises industrielles et commerciales. Les ménages ont investi la somme considérable de 14 milliards EUR.

D'après CPI, les incitations gouvernementales contribuent significativement à débloquer des capitaux privés au profit du financement lié au climat en Allemagne. Près de la moitié des investissements privés liés au climat (16,5 milliards EUR) ont été appuyés par des prêts à faible taux d'intérêt offerts par des banques publiques comme KfW ou Rentenbank.

« Il incombe au gouvernement de créer un contexte favorable aux investissements des entreprises et des ménages dans l'énergie renouvelable et l'efficacité énergétique. En effet, les prêts à faible taux d'intérêt garantis par le gouvernement et des politiques telles que la tarification incitative semblent avoir considérablement contribué à encourager ces investissements privés », a déclaré Barbara Buchner, directrice de CPI Europe.

Le gouvernement allemand est déterminé à réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 80-95 % d'ici 2050 et à supprimer progressivement l'énergie nucléaire d'ici 2022. Ces objectifs font de l'Allemagne un leader mondial en matière d'efforts d'atténuation des changements climatiques nationaux, mais exigent également des investissements significatifs qui vont au-delà des fonds publics disponibles. Par conséquent, la part importante du financement privé peut être interprétée comme un signe positif dans la stratégie de l'Allemagne visant la réduction des émissions de carbone.

Le rapport a également examiné l'utilisation du financement lié au climat en Allemagne, et présente le montant des investissements de capitaux totaux dans l'énergie renouvelable et les investissements différentiels dans l'efficacité énergétique. La génération d'énergie renouvelable représentait la majorité des investissements allemands liés au climat en 2010, avec 26,6 milliards EUR. Les projets d'énergie renouvelable à petite échelle, tels que des installations solaires photovoltaïques résidentielles, constituaient 75 % des investissements dans l'énergie renouvelable, alors que le 25 % restant était composé de projets à grande échelle. Les investissements dans l'efficacité énergétique s'élevaient à 7,2 milliards EUR, dont 3,3 milliards EUR étaient destinés à d'autres investissements spécifiques liés au climat.

Le rapport « The German Landscape of Climate Finance » est à ce jour l'analyse des flux de financement liés au climat la plus exhaustive en Allemagne, et jette les bases des discussions autour du financement allemand lié au climat et de l'efficacité du cadre politique actuel sur le climat. Le rapport souligne également des lacunes au niveau des données et des rapports quant au suivi du financement national lié au climat. Par exemple, les besoins de financement globaux de l'Allemagne restent indéterminés et il n'est pas clair si le niveau de financement actuel est suffisant pour atteindre les objectifs de l'Allemagne en matière de climat et d'énergie.

« Si nous souhaitons que la transition énergétique de l'Allemagne soit réussie, et que d'autres pays apprennent de notre expérience, nous devons mieux comprendre les flux de financement actuels ainsi que l'impact des politiques en place sur les investissements », a précisé Ingmar Juergens, directeur adjoint de CPI Berlin.

Le rapport « German Landscape of Climate Finance » s'inscrit dans les efforts du Climate Policy Initiative visant à suivre le financement lié au climat dans le monde. Une autre étude de CPI intitulée « The Global Climate Finance Landscape 2012 » (Contexte mondial du financement lié au climat en 2012) qui sera publiée le 3 décembre 2012 offre une évaluation complète des flux de financement lié au climat à l'échelle planétaire.

Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) est un organisme mondial d'analyse et de conseil consacré à l'efficacité des politiques publiques, dont la mission consiste à évaluer, à identifier et à appuyer les efforts des pays pour parvenir à une croissance à faible intensité de carbone. Climate Policy Initiative est un organisme indépendant à but non lucratif  bénéficiant du soutien de longue date de George Soros. CPI a son siège social à San Francisco et possède des bureaux régionaux à Berlin, Beijing, Hyderabad, Jakarta, Rio de Janeiro et à Venise.

Les auteurs du rapport sont disponibles pour des entretiens à Berlin et à Doha.

Digitization is driving a fundamental change in society that is transforming the way businesses work with their customers, their supply chains and their people. Digital transformation leverages DevOps best practices, such as Agile Parallel Development, Continuous Delivery and Agile Operations to capitalize on opportunities and create competitive differentiation in the application economy. However, information security has been notably absent from the DevOps movement. Speed doesn’t have to negat...
Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS - software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance? You and all technical teams across the organization – application, network, operations, among others, as well as, those outside the organization, like ISPs and third-party providers – are called in to solve the problem.
While DevOps promises a better and tighter integration among an organization’s development and operation teams and transforms an application life cycle into a continual deployment, Chef and Azure together provides a speedy, cost-effective and highly scalable vehicle for realizing the business values of this transformation.

As applications are promoted from the development environment to the CI or the QA environment and then into the production environment, it is very common for the configuration settings to be changed as the code is promoted. For example, the settings for the database connection pools are typically lower in development environment than the QA/Load Testing environment. The primary reason for the existence of the configuration setting differences is to enhance application performance. However, occas...

Analysis of 25,000 applications reveals 6.8% of packages/components used included known defects. Organizations standardizing on components between 2 - 3 years of age can decrease defect rates substantially. Open source and third-party packages/components live at the heart of high velocity software development organizations. Today, an average of 106 packages/components comprise 80 - 90% of a modern application, yet few organizations have visibility into what components are used where.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
Throughout history, various leaders have risen up and tried to unify the world by conquest. Fortunately, none of their plans have succeeded. The world goes on just fine with each country ruling itself; no single ruler is necessary. That’s how it is with the container platform ecosystem, as well. There’s no need for one all-powerful, all-encompassing container platform. Think about any other technology sector out there – there are always multiple solutions in every space. The same goes for conta...
