In recent years, governments have increasingly focused on innovation as a means to accelerate clean energy transitions and meet climate targets under the Paris Agreement.

A new UN Environment Programme (UNEP) desk study launched at the 17th African Ministerial Conference on the Environment in Durban, South Africa, calls for urgent action to address the production and consumption of biomass as a source of energy in Africa.

This study aims at supporting decision making in the electricity sector in Kenya by comparing geothermal and coal as two main power generation technologies, and the impact of developing these technologies on generation costs, affordability of electricity, and overall flexibility and reliability of electricity supply.

This report synthesises available analyses on the role and potential of mini-grids in Kenya and explores how this technology can help the country attain its goal of universal electrification by 2022 and also contribute to the achievement of other related development objectives.

Rapid economic and population growth in Africa, particularly in the continent’s burgeoning cities, will have profound implications for the energy sector, both regionally and globally.

Oil and gas finds in Kenya present a unique opportunity that can cement the path towards sustainable development. Enhanced SME engagement in the sector is a critical lever for sustainable development. Together with micro enterprises, SMEs are estimated to contribute about 33.8% to Kenya’s GDP and employ close to 14.9 million Kenyans.

Since 2015, improvements in global energy intensity have been weakening each year. Energy Efficiency 2019 examines the reasons for this slowdown, which has major implications for consumers, businesses, governments and the environment.

Advanced liquid biofuels are a key part of low-carbon transport development to meet emission-reduction targets and international climate commitments. Liquid biofuels, requiring minimal changes to fuel distribution infrastructure or the transport fleet, can be deployed rapidly to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

One of cities hosting China’s Winter Olympic Games in 2022 has turned to renewables to reduce future emissions and address growing energy demand.
