In this paper, the Working Group on Mitigation Instruments (WGMI) provides a framework to choose the appropriate mitigation instruments for India’s transition to a low-carbon economy.

The study, undertaken in collaboration BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) and supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, presents a framework to assess the costs and benefits to distribution companies (Discoms) from increasing rooftop solar (RTS) installations.

This report, in collaboration with the SELCO Foundation and supported by the Good Energies Foundation, analyses the financiers’ perspective in lending for solar-powered livelihood appliances in India. It generates evidence on the impact of solar-powered productive-use technologies on the net incomes of end-users and their loan repayments.

This brief analyses four key sectors of the manufacturing industry: iron and steel, cement, ammonia and chemicals (primarily petrochemicals), which have the highest emissions intensity of production. The analysis reveals that the opportunities to decarbonise the manufacturing sector are aplenty.

This brief demonstrates that the energy transition in the countries in which energy demand is accelerating is constrained by availability and affordability of finance. It examines the demand for capital in emerging economies and their current political economy and investment landscape.

Transparency in climate actions and support is an important pillar on which climate negotiations rest. This study presents an assessment tool – Capacity Building Assessment Matrix (CBAM) – to help quantify capacity building efforts and the gaps therein, with regards to climate transparency.

This report discusses the risks constraining renewable energy (RE) investments in Indonesia. Part of a series, which assesses barriers to the flow of capital into RE markets in emerging economies, it focuses on solar and wind energy, which are the major drivers of global RE investments.

This report, part of a series which assesses the obstacles to the flow of capital into renewable energy markets in emerging economies, investigates risks considered important by stakeholders in South Africa’s renewable energy market.

This study presents a proposed solution to the risk of renewable energy (RE) curtailment – a grid integration guarantee (GIG), which offers cover against tail-end curtailment risk with market-reflective pricing.

This report discusses the issues that impede the development of wind energy in India and undertakes a systematic analysis to propose pathways and interventions to achieve the national target.
