The Policy Brief 2020: Advancing SDG7 in Asia and the Pacific was prepared by ESCAP in collaboration with the Asian Development Bank and the custodian agencies for the SDG 7 indicators.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has transformed the energy landscape and the priorities of governments around the world. The Global Commission's work has been sharply focused on this new reality.

Fully decarbonizing global industry is essential to achieving climate stabilization, and reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050–2070 is necessary to limit global warming to 2 °C. This paper assembles and evaluates technical and policy interventions, both on the supply side and on the demand side.

The Energy Transition Index (ETI) is a fact-based ranking intended to enable policy-makers and businesses to plot the course for a successful energy transition.The year 2020 marks the beginning of the “decade of delivery” on energy transition.

This report was prepared by an Expert agency PWC Ltd, who was engaged by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) for independent verification to assess the resultant annual savings in energy as well as CO 2 emissions through various initiatives in India.

The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federal program administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It provides funding to reduce the costs of energy bills, relieve energy crises, and, depending on the state, complete weatherization upgrades.

This paper highlights the environmental significance of recent changes to the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS), approved by members of the World Customs Organization in early 2020.

Rural and small-town energy use, access, and costs present a major challenge for state policymakers and program administrators, but also an opportunity for investment and economic development by leveraging energy efficiency, fuel production, and energy-generating technologies, and inclusive policy making to reduce the household, agricultural, an

Europe has seized its ‘man on the moon’ moment, inspiring the seemingly impossible to become possible. In setting out a bold vision to become the first climate neutral continent, the EU is looking to inspire a global ‘space race’ to net zero emissions. One of the mission critical pathways to reach this goal is through Europe’s buildings.

Electrification, hydrogen, enhanced efficiency, and other technological innovations are essential for long term greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in the industrial sector (Rissman, et. al. 2020).
