This report by the International Energy Agency offers world's first comprehensive roadmap for transitioning to a net zero energy system by 2050. It includes more than 400 milestones that set out how governments and businesses could navigate the rapid transformation of the global economy

In the search for alternatives to fossil fuel-based energy, FAO has been supporting the Zambian Government in developing and integrating sustainable bioenergy in the agriculture sectors The recently published report ‘Sustainable bioenergy potential in Zambia: An integrated bioenergy food security assessment’ documents findings to support policy

In this work present two unit-level decommissioning schedules that are aligned with a Paris Agreement compatible CO2 emission reduction pathway. Both of these schedules require 4.2 GW of coal capacity to be retired each year, and units currently under construction would only be able to operate for four years at the most.

This is the fourth edition of the ground-breaking Chilling Prospects series, which tracks immediate vulnerability due to a lack of access to cooling. The work identifies populations at risk for whom a lack of access to cooling threatens their immediate health and safety.

Widening access to clean, reliable electricity is one of the greatest challenges to sustainable development in Africa. Energy storage, particularly batteries, will be critical in supporting Africa’s progress to full energy access by 2030, enabling off-grid and on-grid electrification.

This paper, based on inputs from key stakeholders on the subject, outlines a phased introduction of MBED with Phase 1 involving only the thermal fleet of NTPC to test the efficacy of the MBED mechanism, identify deficiencies or potential issues that need to be addressed prior to a nation-wide rollout, familiarize all key stakeholders with the fr

This report, a joint study between IRENA and the Korea Energy Economics Institute (KEEI), provides new perspectives on the interconnection potential in Northeast Asia and valuable insights for policy makers and key stakeholders.

In 2015, the Government of India set a target to achieve 175 GW of grid-connected renewable electricity capacity by March 2022. The national target for rooftop solar PV (RTS) is 40 GW and the installed capacity as of 31 December 2020 was around 6 GW.

This study provides a comprehensive overview of India’s Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) mechanism and outlines key trends in its evolution since 2010. RECs are market instruments that allow power distribution companies (disoms) and others to meet renewable purchase obligations (RPO) without buying green power.

Cities are critical to the global energy transition. The most visible energy transitions today occur in major cities. With their comparatively large revenue bases, big cities have the regulatory frameworks and infrastructure to scale up renewables and meet emission reduction targets.
