Thanks Mr Gasparatos and Good morning-Ruth Spencer from Antigua and Barbuda-a small Caribbean SIDS , We have the high and hot temperatures perfect for the transition but it is not a just transition since regulatory processes are not transparent and approval conditions for RE systems getting more and more difficult . In additon each year we are faced with hurricanes and storms which are increasing in frequencies and intensities so RE systems must be designed as flexible systems that can be put up and down in a short time interval.
Alexandros Gasparatos responded
Thanks for the comment Ms Spencer. I completely agree with your point. This reflects very well the point I tried to made about the need for context-specific understanding of the possible impacts and solutions.
