    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 7, 2008
    Objective: 

    The handbook contains 31 articles by individual authors covering the following issues: policies and legislation on F-gases and related issues (Part 1), safety concerns and means to overcome (Part 2), a technical assessment of natural refrigerants in different applications (air conditioning, commercial and industrial refrigeration and heat pumps) (Part 3) and case studies by manufacturers and end-users providing insights into market developments and examples of successful conversions to natural refrigerants (Part 4).

  • National Integrated Mitigation Planning in Agriculture

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, March 31, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This review of national greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation planning in the agriculture sector serves two objectives: (1) to provide national policymakers and others in the agriculture sector with an overview of national mitigation planning processes and aid them in identifying the relevance of these processes for promoting agricultural development; (2) to provide policymakers and advisors involved in low-emission development planning processes with an overview of mitigation planning in the agriculture sector and in particular to highlight the relevance of agriculture to national mitigation pla

  • Invention and Transfer of Climate Change Mitigation Technologies on a Global Scale: A Study Drawing on Patent Data

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 2, 2010
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This paper uses the EPO/OECD World Patent Statistical Database (PATSTAT) to provide a quantitative description of the geographic distribution of inventions in 13 climate mitigation technologies since 1978 and their international diffusion on a global scale. Statistics suggest that innovation has mostly been driven by energy prices until 1990. Since then, environmental policies, and climate policies more recently, have accelerated the pace of innovation. Innovation is highly concentrated in three countries--Japan, Germany and the USA--which account for 60% of total innovations.

  • International Renewable Energy Agency Renewable Energy Country Profiles

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    The IRENA Renewable Energy Country Profiles combine elements of IRENA analysis with the latest information available from a vast array of sources in order to give a brief yet comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the situation of renewable energy that includes energy supply, electrical capacity, energy access, policies, targets, investment climate, projects and endowment in renewable energy resources. Because of the different timelines of these sources, data presented here refer to years between 2008 and 2012.

  • International Carbon Flows: Aluminium

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 5, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Approximately one-third (28 per cent) of aluminium emissions cross a border embodied in commodity aluminium. Half of this trade is contained within regions, and the other half between regions. The 10 largest inter-regional flows of carbon embodied in traded aluminium and other non-ferrous metals are illustrated above, with the most significant being from the CIS (ex-Soviet Union Commonwealth of Independent States) to Europe, China to the rest of Asia and Australia to Asia.

  • Industry, Energy and Transportation: Impacts and Adaptation

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This chapter reviews literature addressing the potential impacts of climate change on the energy, industry and transportation sectors and the associated capacity for adaptation. The chapter begins by considering broad issues relating to impacts and adaptation in the three sectors. It moves on to a more precise definition of the sectors, identifying their economic importance and the more important climate sensitivities. There follows a general overview of the different types of studies that have been conducted and the range of methodologies that have been used.

  • Global Wind Potential Supply Curves by Country, Class and Depth

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, December 7, 2012
    Objective: 

    This is on global wind potential supply curves by country, class and depth (quantities in GW).

  • Global Non-Ferrous Scrap Flows 2000-2011

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The goal of this report is to provide an understanding of global non-ferrous metal scrap flows in the context of non-ferrous industry developments over the 2000 to 2011 period. The focus of this study is on copper and aluminium as the two largest non-ferrous metals in terms of both material tonnages and market value. The report consists of four chapters. The first chapter, presented here, provides a brief backdrop to the analysis on non-ferrous scrap flows. It outlines growth in metal demand and the underlying reasons for this growth.
