Tracking progress towards Europe’s climate and energy targets. The annual ‘Trends and projections’ report provides an assessment of the progress of the EU and European countries towards their climate mitigation and energy targets. It is based on national data for greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy and energy consumption.

Heating and cooling accounts for almost half of global energy consumption. With most of this relying fossil fuels, however, it contributes heavily to greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution.

The world needs more, better and cheaper technologies to achieve clean energy transitions, despite some progress in recent years. There is an opportunity to strengthen support for clean energy innovation as part of sustainable recovery plans and counteract the potential threats to energy technology development from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Colombia faces a number of challenges including growing need for social housing in metropolitan areas driven by accelerating urbanisation associated with a growing electricity demand as well as increasing hydroelectric uncertainty as a result of changes in the el Niño weather phenomenon.

This report presents the results of the third edition of the Electricity Regulatory Index (ERI) for Africa, covering thirty-six countries. The first edition was published in 2018 and covered fifteen countries. Thirty-four countries participated and were assessed in ERI 2019.

Proposed short-term measures to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping fall into two categories: operational approaches and technical approaches.

Improving building energy efficiency is central to the strategic development of the Republic of Armenia (Armenia). As Armenia’s largest energy-consuming sector, buildings account for nearly 40% of the country’s total electricity demand and more than 25% of its gas demand.

The World Energy Trilemma Index is an annual measurement of national energy system performances across each of the three trilemma dimensions: Energy Security measures a nation’s capacity to meet current and future energy demand reliably, withstand and bounce back swiftly from system shocks with minimal disruption to supplies.

This study assesses the impact of the existing energy efficiency initiatives on household awareness levels, preferences and behaviour concerning efficiency in electricity use.
