East and Southern African countries possess vast potential for renewable energy development. Co-ordinated regional plans will play a vital role in scaling up the use of renewables for power generation, strengthening regional power supplies, meeting national climate commitments and ensuring energy security.

The Standing Committee on Energy, present this Seventeenth Report on ‘Action Plan for achievement of 175 Gigawatt (GW) Renewable Energy Target' relating to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy. A potential of 1490.73 GW has been estimated from various renewable energy Sources i.e.

DRE livelihood applications can be defined as applications powered by renewable energy - solar, wind, micro-hydro, biomass & their combinations, which are used for earning livelihoods directly such as solar dryer, solar mills, solar or biomass powered cold storage/chiller, solar charkha and looms, small-scale biomass briquette/pellet-making

Populations in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) living on the fringes of forests indubitably rely on them for income and subsistence. But unsustainable practices can lead to resource degradation and depletion, threatening the very basis of their livelihoods.

Methanol is essential for the chemical industry and represents an emerging fuel for a wide range of uses. Although largely produced from fossil fuels, it can also be made from sustainable, renewable-based energy sources.

The Southern Region (SR) leads renewable energy (RE) deployment in India, having an installed capacity of about 43 GW as of December 2020. Recognising the immense RE potential of this region, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India, has set an ambitious RE target of 59 GW for SR by 2022.

Japan has long been a major energy importer, relying heavily on fossil fuels to meet household and community electricity needs as well as transport and industrial energy demand.

This study focuses on the ex-situ crop residue management and examines the economics of crop residue supply chain in Punjab. It compares the delivered cost of various types of biomass products such as bales, briquettes, and pellets to end-users.

Gasification is a flexible thermal conversion process with wide-ranging applications in sectors such as heat and power generation, transport fuel and chemicals production. This report, developed by IEA Bioenergy provides a closer examination of a number of emerging gasification technologies, i.e.

States in sub-Saharan Africa have begun to explore the benefits of expanding the bioeconomy and using various biofuels. This report examines the use of Croton megalocarpus Hutch in Kenya and its potential to improve farmers’ livelihoods and contribute to a range of economic sectors.
