An electric vehicle (EV) battery uses up just 30kg of raw materials with recycling compared to the 17,000 litres of petrol burned by the average car. That’s according to a new study that shows Europe’s current crude oil dependency far outweighs its need for battery raw materials.

Sustainable Development Goal 7 on energy (SDG7) outlines clear targets for universal access, increasing renewable energy and improving energy efficiency, while Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement provides a basis for limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

This study, jointly produced by Climate Policy Initiative and Vivid Economics maps the ‘greenness’ of these fiscal stimulus measures and their contribution towards country-level climate objectives.

Recent studies analyzing India’s decarbonisation efforts using external data do not confirm the achievements stated in India’s country reports submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Convention.

Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement requires increased global climate action, especially towards the transition of the energy sector.

The key objective of this SDG 7 roadmap is to assist the Government of Georgia to develop enabling policy measures to achieve the SDG 7 targets. This roadmap contains a matrix of technological options and enabling policy measures for the Government to consider.

If ASEAN is to support the achievement of the SDG 7 target to double the rate of energy intensity improvement, much more aggressive measures are needed than the path set by current policies. Enabling all of these SDG 7 objectives is investment in clean energy, which is falling well short of required levels.

Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy (RISE) 2020 monitors and assesses policy and regulatory support for sustainable energy to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy while expanding access to electricity and clean cooking fuels.

The Climate Change Performance Index compares 57 countries and the EU in the areas of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Renewable Energies, Energy Use and Climate Policy, thus providing a comprehensive overview of the current efforts and progress of the countries analyzed.

This study’s primary aim is to explore ways to reduce heating-related residential sector emissions using a scenario analysis approach as the basis of a roadmap for Kazakhstan. The purpose of this roadmap is to help Kazakhstan formulate a policy framework and conditions to enable a household energy-use transition.
