The recent power sector decarbonisation report states that it is possible for South Africa to decarbonise its economy and assesses ways to ensure a just transition that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
This consultant study introduces a partial equilibrium model to project the mix of renewable fuels most likely to be used to comply with the Commission’s set of proposed targets for the road and aviation sectors.
This report uses four case studies from across the globe to draw lessons on how cities and regions can equitably manage the decline of major industrial and mining activities and minimize disruption to local economies.
Corporate procurement of renewable energy has played an important and growing role in decarbonizing global power systems over the past decade. Now, the growing urgency for climate action is motivating leading firms to consider advanced procurement strategies that can accelerate progress toward a carbon-free electricity grid.
This report released by REN21 Secretariat, shows that governments need to give a much harder push to renewables in all sectors, It advocates for the establishment of renewable shares as key performance indicators for both private and public decision-making processes as well as key measures for progress towards climate and energy goals
Border carbon adjustments imply that high-income countries set taxes on energy-intensive imports that are proportional to the carbon content of these imports, to match their own carbon taxes. This paper considers the impacts of such a policy on exporter countries, many of which have no or very low carbon taxes today.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) regularly conducts in-depth peer reviews of the energy policies of its member countries. This process supports energy policy development and encourages the exchange of international best practices and experiences.
This paper outlines design considerations for an effective low-carbon cement standard in the United States, including how to set benchmarks and stringency, how to address leakage and competitiveness, and how to structure cost containment policies.
