This PricewaterhouseCoopers analytical report reviews G20 carbon intensity levels between 2000-2008 and the distance to go to 2050, underlining case for an ambitious deal in Copenhagen and emphasises the key role of China, US, EU and India.

The greening of economic growth series ESCAP, its partners and Asia-Pacific countries have advocated "green growth" as a strategy to achieve sustainable development in the resource-constrained, high-poverty context of the Asian and the Pacific region.

The economic policy reform in respect of Indian cement industry, during the early 80

This collection of articles captures and disseminates some perspectives on climate change from the Indian context. Starting from an argument on a new climate deal to highlighting the importance of the small-scale industrial sector within climate change debates,this includes concerns and convictions of India

China's boom of coal-fired power plants is likely to slow after next year as excess capacity and then expanding renewable and nuclear energy sources kick in, a senior energy policy analyst said in an interview.

China might extend through 2020 its goal of improving energy efficiency, the official China Daily reported on Friday, citing sources involved in a government discussion.

The government failed to meet its yearly reduction target of 4 percent in 2006 but has retained an overall 20 percent reduction goal for the five-year period ending in 2010.

Norway opened a 560 kilometre (350 mile) "hydrogen highway" on Monday with more than a dozen hydrogen-powered cars rallying along a scenic route between its capital city Oslo and North Sea oil hub Stavanger.

Energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions are closely linked. This paper reviews agricultural options to reduce energy intensities and their impacts, discusses important accounting issues related to system boundaries, land scarcity, and measurement units and compares agricultural energy intensities and improvement potentials on an international level.

This study analyzes the role of energy intensity improvement in the short term (to the year 2020) and midterm (to the year 2050) in the context of long-term greenhouse gases (GHG) stabilization scenarios. The data come from the latest Emissions Scenarios Database and were reviewed in the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases, China and the US, are showing positive signs of greening.
