Greenhouse gas emissions could be halved in the next decade if a small number of current technologies and behavioural trends are ramped up and adopted more widely, researchers have found, saying strong civil society movements are needed to drive such change.

A new paradigm for power sector reform emerged during the 1990s, under the influence of the Washington Consensus, and began to spread across the developing world.

China’s internet data center industry emitted an estimated 99 million tonnes of CO2 in 2018, new research from Greenpeace East Asia and the North China Electric Power University shows. Researchers found that increasing the sector’s renewable energy intake by 7% over the next five years would reduce carbon emissions by 16 million tonnes.

Global investment in new renewable energy capacity over this decade — 2010 to 2019 inclusive — is on course to hit USD 2.6 trillion, with more gigawatts of solar power capacity installed than any other generation technology, according to new figures published.

Tamil Nadu has been ranked tenth in the State Rooftop Solar Attractiveness Index (SARAL), below other key States. Karnataka has been given the first rank in the index, followed by Telangana, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh.

This study examines the drivers of both the previous decline in global energy-related CO2 emissions, and their subsequent growth in recent years (in the EU, US, India and China), and argues that this trend was in neither case a good indicator of climate policy effort or effectiveness.

The Rajasthan government has released a draft of new hybrid policy titled, ‘Rajasthan Wind and Wind-Solar Hybrid Policy, 2019’. The largest state in the country, Rajasthan has come up with a draft of the solar-wind hybrid policy that aims to achieve 2000 MW Wind Power capacity.

Hydrogen has emerged as an important part of the clean energy mix needed to ensure a sustainable future. Falling costs for hydrogen produced with renewable energy, combined with the urgency of cutting greenhouse-gas emissions, has given clean hydrogen unprecedented political and business momentum.
