An electric vehicle (EV) battery uses up just 30kg of raw materials with recycling compared to the 17,000 litres of petrol burned by the average car. That’s according to a new study that shows Europe’s current crude oil dependency far outweighs its need for battery raw materials.

The International Renewable Energy Agency's (IRENA) transforming energy scenario identifies the course the world should pursue to create a sustainable future energy system. To achieve this goal, profound changes will be required to convert the present system from dependence on fossil fuels to greater reliance on renewable energy.

Reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations is among the most cost-effective and impactful actions that governments can take to achieve global climate goals.

In 2006, Uganda’s hopes of developing an oil industry were boosted by the confirmation of “commercially recoverable” quantities of oil in the Albertine Basin. By 2013, three international oil companies were lined up to develop the oil fields with first oil expected in 2018.

Reform of support for fossil fuels is often identified as a priority for a country’s fiscal consolidation efforts and for climate action to align financial flows with low-carbon pathways.

This briefing assesses the recent climate change announcements from six European oil & gas majors. This briefing paper provides provisional Carbon Performance assessments for the six European integrated oil and gas companies covered by TPI following the disclosure of new targets by BP, Eni, Repsol, Shell and Total in the last six months.

The Covid-19 crisis is affecting the entire world economy and that of Africa. Some key sectors of the African economy are already experiencing a slowdown as a result of the pandemic. Tourism, air transport, and the oil sector are visibly impacted.

This publication assesses the potential of carbon dioxide-enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) technology to mitigate climate change in Indonesia. Although the technology was designed to rejuvenate oil production in mature oilfields, its value in permanently storing CO2 has recently attracted global interest.

Oil and gas finds in Kenya present a unique opportunity that can cement the path towards sustainable development. Enhanced SME engagement in the sector is a critical lever for sustainable development. Together with micro enterprises, SMEs are estimated to contribute about 33.8% to Kenya’s GDP and employ close to 14.9 million Kenyans.

Major oil and gas companies have invested $50bn (£40.6bn) in fossil fuel projects that undermine global efforts to avert a runaway climate crisis, according to a report.
