The 2010 edition of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) provides updated projections of energy demand, production, trade and investment, fuel by fuel and region by region to 2035. It includes, for the first time, a new scenario that anticipates future actions by governments to meet the commitments they have made to tackle climate change and growing energy insecurity.

Putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions is a cornerstone policy in climate change mitigation. To this end, many countries have implemented or are developing domestic emissions trading systems.

A GEF-STAP (Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel) Advisory Document entitled 'Advancing Sustainable Low-Carbon Transport Through the GEF' has been published.

With India looking at a $1-trillion investment in the infrastructure sector during the Twelfth Plan period, the challenge of a low-carbon economy would become tougher, since the sector contributes 58 per cent to the country

The information and communication technology (ICT) industry and its individual providers are at an important juncture.

This report examines how low-carbon technologies have been introduced, adapted, deployed, and diffused in three greenhouse gas-intensive sectors in China: supercritical/ultrasupercritical (SC/USC) coal-fired power generation technology; onshore wind energy technology; and blast furnace top gas recovery turbine (TRT) technology in the steel sector.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) considers carbon capture and storage (CCS) a crucial part of worldwide efforts to limit global warming by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. The IEA has
estimated that the broad deployment of low-carbon energy technologies could reduce projected 2050 emissions to half 2005 levels

Leading Indian companies are demonstrating global best practices in disclosing their carbon emissions and setting performance targets for mitigation of GHG emissions. 51 Indian companies have responded to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) this year.
