  • Energy supply from waste

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    The most commonly used conversion methods – combustion of waste to produce heat or electricity; anaerobic digestion to produce methane for heat or power production etc. all are well-established and commercial technologies. A further set of conversion processes – for example, the production of liquid fuels from cellulosic materials by biological or thermochemical conversion processes, such as pyrolysis – are at earlier stages of commercialisation or still under development.

  • Geothermal electricity

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Geothermal electricity is electricity generated from geothermal energy. Inside the Earth's crust there are several reservoirs with hot water which can be used for heating buildings and/or production of electricity. The process causes relatively little CO2 emissions (from the steam), which could potentially be reinjected in the earth's crust through carbon capture and storage. Contrary to conventional geothermal power plants, present generation plants re-inject the condensated steam or hot water into the underground acquifer so that the reservoir capacity could remain intact.

    Type: 
    Event
    Date:
    Thursday, December 3, 2015 - Thursday, December 3, 2015 Europe/Paris

    The UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) provides technology transfer assistance in response to developing country requests. Several cases of implemented technical assistance offer an opportunity to discuss the potential for private sector participation.  The CTCN has already quickly mobilized its global Network of climate technology experts from among finance and private sectors, as well as research and NGO institutions.

    Developing countries are successfully using Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) as an instrument to contribute towards national sustainable development and also towards closing the pre-2020 ambition gap.

    NAMA Day aims to showcase NAMAs that are contributing towards moving developing countries along a low-emissions development trajectory and to inspire further transformational action on the ground.

    CTCN staff will be on hand to discuss how the CTCN can assist countries with developing and utilising their NAMAs at the Poster Exhibition.
