Rapid economic and population growth in Africa, particularly in the continent’s burgeoning cities, will have profound implications for the energy sector, both regionally and globally.

Cities have a unique role to play in accelerating the sustainable energy transition. Crisscrossed with transport systems and home to a variety of energy-intensive end-use sectors like heating and cooling, cities are a prime playing field to transition to sustainable energy.

This paper explores the range of approaches and emerging program designs currently used in the United States to match EV loads and renewable energy, with an emphasis on methods that more closely link the timing and location of the EV demand with renewable energy supply.

One of cities hosting China’s Winter Olympic Games in 2022 has turned to renewables to reduce future emissions and address growing energy demand.

India is committed to reducing GHG emission intensity up to 33-35% by 2030 from the 2005 level and set the target of 40% non-fossil based electricity generation in the energy mix. This will require scaling up of share of renewable energy (RE) considerably beyond the present target of 175 GW by 2022.

Utilisation levels of many thermal power plants would fall to 35-40% if the country sets up 130 gigawatt (GW) of renewable energy capacity by 2022, a latest report by KPMG India has pointed out.

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.
