Trump says U.S. could go back in Paris Agreement

20180111

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that Washington could "conceivably" re-enter into the global Paris climate agreement, from which he announced the withdrawal last year. At a news conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, Trump said: "We could conceivably go back in." However, he insisted that Paris Agreement, which the international community signed in 2015 with the aim of combating climate change by limiting global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius, was "a bad deal" and "very unfair" to the United States. "The Paris Accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we"re not going to let that happen. I"m not going to let that happen," he added. Trump"s words may mean that his position was actually unchanged from a year ago. Trump"s decision in June last year to pull the United States out of the landmark global accord has sparked a wave of anger and dismay at home and also a chorus of disapproval abroad.

As a fundamental rule, electricity supply and demand must be balanced at all times. Traditionally, this has been achieved by adjusting electricity supply to match demand that varies at different times of the day. But this poses a problem as the share of power generation from variable renewables such as wind and solar PV rises. Demand-side response is one of ...
