  • Policies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Industry--Successful Approaches and Lessons Learned: Workshop Report

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2003
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The industry sector is an important direct and indirect source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Annex I countries. Emissions from the industry sector are expected to draw increasing attention by policymakers as they look for means to reduce domestic GHG emissions. For this reason, the Annex I Expert Group (AIXG) on the UNFCCC decided to hold a workshop in Berlin on 2-3 December 2002 to discuss the range of policies to reduce GHG emissions in industry, with a focus on voluntary approaches (VAs), taxes and trading.

  • Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme (PVPS): Annual Report 2012

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, April 30, 2013
    Objective: 

    2012 has been a very dynamic and challenging year for the photovoltaic sector: The rapid cost reduction of photovoltaic power systems has continued throughout the year, leading to the emergence of new markets and market models. The market has continued to grow but at a slower pace than in the years before. At the end of 2012, about 100 GW of photovoltaics were installed worldwide, with contributions up to 6% of the electricity supply of some countries.
