Many of the world’s Small Island Developing States (SIDS) have started to integrate renewables into their electricity supply mix. The expected benefits include reducing dependency on costly, sometimes volatile fossil-fuel imports.

This collection aims to provide a reference for policy makers and practitioners working to scale up bioenergy in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. Energy, agriculture, forestry, environment, finance and business experts all seek for solutions to provide energy and also enhance food security, social welfare and environmental sustainability.

The world is steadily progressively towards universal access to electricity, with access rates in rural areas growing rapidly. Current technologies and the solutions can dramatically accelerate the growth trajectory of electricity access.

Renewable energy has advanced rapidly in the Global Cooperation Council (GCC) countries since 2014.

Predominantly known for power generation and district heating, geothermal energy can also be used in its primary form (i.e. heat) in the agri-food sector – for instance in greenhouses or for food drying and processing.

Renewable Energy: A Gender Perspective provides new insights on women’s role in renewable energy employment and decision-making globally. This key report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) aims to help fill the knowledge gap in this field.

Aware that the growing deployment of renewables has set in motion a global energy transformation with significant implications for geopolitics, Adnan Z.

Developing cities seeking to assess their policy and financing options for rooftop photovoltaic (PV) power generation can benefit from the increasing sophistication of rooftop PV simulators.

In many countries, the production of off-grid electricity from renewables is largely unrecorded, but is believed to be expanding rapidly. This trend has been driven by numerous factors, including falling costs, innovation and supportive public policies.

Cities account for the bulk of global energy use. With the urban population growing everywhere, measures at the municipal level are a crucial element in the shift to sustainable, renewable energy sources.
