Before country’s system. Regarding Germany’s status quo,

Before getting intoGermany’s position, this delegate wishes to credit some terms in the agenda. “Renewableenergy” only applies to energy that is replenished faster than it is consumed. Thisdefinition excludes alternative energy sources that are not renewable. Second,this delegate wishes to define what “distribution” entails.

“Distribution” isnot just delivering technology to a certain physical place, but also integrating the technology into a country’ssystem.         Regarding Germany’s status quo, 30% of its energy isgenerated from wind, photovoltaic, and/or biomass energy. However, Germany cangenerate even 78% of its energy from renewable energy, which happened on July25th, 2015. North Germany’s windy weather is perfect for wind energygeneration, and Germany is increasing the number of wind turbines significantly.Sunny conditions in South Germany and Germany technology have combined to raiseGermany as a lead nation in solar energy, and Germany is increasing its solarpanels too. Germany hopes to be almost totally powered by renewable energy by2050.However,Germany’s individual efforts are insufficient, for all nations must cooperate.

Therefore,this delegate proposes that a new UN agency be formed as a donation pool forskills and technology. More specifically, the skills and technology that dealwith renewable energy will be collected and distributed by this new agency,which this delegate wishes to name the UN Pool of Renewable Energy Technology. Themain problem in encouraging nations to use renewable energy is that countries,especially developing countries, are reluctant to “waste” resources onswitching to renewable-energy-based technology. Notonly that, most countries believe that renewable-energy-based technology is lessefficient and will hinder economic development. However, Germany is anexample of how renewable energy sources and economic growth are compatible.

Sincethe severe economic failure after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germany hasundergone a 46% GDP increase, while experiencing a 28% fossil fuel use decline.Yet developing countries still demand to grow economically before switchingtheir energy supply to renewable sources, and this leads to a lack ofcooperation: eco-friendly nations are advising developing nations to usegreen energy while developing nations ignore these recommendations. TheUNPRET is the answer to these problems.

Theskills and technology held by the UNPRET will be supplied by member nations,especially those that excel in renewable energy technology. These will bedistributed to developing nations by the UNPRET, along with experts who willhelp integrate the technology. Moreover, supplicant nations will be making “donations”.Donations can be research results, or actual means of generation (e.g. solarpanels). However, some nations might be reluctant to make donations.

Therefore,this delegate proposes that the UNPRET give proportioned incentives to donors,such as financial rewards or funding for further research. On the otherhand, developing nations will be reluctant to integrate renewable energytechnology, but by using monetary incentives, this delegate believes that theycan be weaned off non-renewable energy. This system is much like theenvironmental goods sector (EGS) in Germany, which receives renewable-energy-basedtechnology (in return for incentives) from private companies to distribute thetechnology to factories and other companies. Considering that the EGS composes5% of Germany’s GDP, this delegate believes that the UNPRET can also besuccessful. Thisdelegate also believes that the UNPRET should set an international limit on CO2emissions. (CO2 emissions show a nation’s reliance on fossil fuels instead ofrenewable energy, and are thus an objective standard).

This limit would be proportionateto countries’ populations; the more people, the more CO2 the country is allowedto emit. However, once the country exceeds the limit, the country will have topay a fine to the UNPRET. If a country wishes to emit more CO2, but avoidpaying the fine, there are two possible paths. If the country is a developednation, it can donate skills or research results that cost less than the finethey would have had to pay instead. If the country is a developing nation, itcan agree to replace a certain percentage of its pre-existing technology withgreen technology provided by the UNPRET instead of paying the fine.

Thisdelegate affirms that this will be adequate incentive for all countries tocooperate with each other and with the UNPRET. Thisdelegate also confirms that Germany will take an active role in the actuationof the UNPRET. Germany will support the cause by donating its advanced solarpanels and wind turbines to the UNPRET. Germany’s research on renewable energyshall be shared with the UNPRET, and Germany will make sure that its donationsare sent to the places where they are most needed.

Germany encourages all othernations to do the same: research how to better use renewable energy, and donateit to the UNPRET. Furthermore, Germany will partner up with one developingnation and help it directly. Finally, Germany will strive to develop moreefficient ways of channeling renewable energy, so using renewable-energy-basedtechnology will not be an obstacle to economic growth. This delegate encouragesall other nations to stand with Germany in this issue.
