One of the aims of the DiaCore project is to improve the conditions for financing RES (renewable energy sources) investments. This DiaCore report is the first to estimate the costs of capital for onshore wind energy projects across the 28 EU Member States. It finds the weighted cost of capital significantly varying.

The report Analysing the status quo of CDM projects concludes that under current market conditions, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is currently not able to provide sufficient incentive for the continuation of mitigation activities and identifies a general risk of mitigation activities to discontinue.

A new paper discusses the current and potential interaction between nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs).

The study “Electricity Costs of Energy Intensive Industries” examines, in detail, the composition of electricity prices in Germany and ten other countries: the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Denmark, Canada, the United States, China, Korea and Japan.

This report was compiled by Ecofys to support The New Climate Economy (NCE) and the publication of a report on the role of international collaboration in climate action, which provides ten recommendations to catalyse international climate action.

This study focuses on the efficient market integration of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in order to provide flexibility to the power system.

This index report ranks countries based on their economic output per unit of energy consumed. Commissioned by Philips, the energy productivity index was authored by The Lisbon Council, Ecofys and Quintel Intelligence.

The purpose of this study is to compare the energy efficiency and CO2-intensity of fossil-fired power generation for Australia, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway aggregated), South Korea, United Kingdom and Ireland (aggregated), and the United States.

This report investigates to what extent different definitions of ‘Primary energy factors’ can have implications on EU energy policy. Primary energy factors (PEF) have been developed as a form of comparison and a number of EU directives refer to the implementation of primary energy factors in setting energy and climate targets.

This Climate Action Tracker update shows that current emissions and policies - and future emission trends - are likely to lead to higher 21st century emission levels than previously projected. This, in turn, implies a higher level of warming by 2100.
