    Wednesday, January 6, 2010
    Objective: 

    This document provides an overview of hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) technology, including progress, performance, cost, potential and barriers. The document discusses various business models that have been designed to encourage the deployment and use of HEVs, such as battery leasing. It also summarizes technical performance, environmental impact and cost data for various HEVs.

  • Guidelines for Climate Proofing Investment in the Energy Sector

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 5, 2013
    Objective: 

    These guidelines aim to present a step-by-step methodological approach to assist project teams to assess and incorporate climate change adaptation measures into energy investment projects. The technical note encompasses lessons learned and good practices identified through several completed and ongoing ADB energy projects.

  • Grid-Connected Renewable Energy: Wind Power Technologies

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    This presentation provides information on the following aspects of wind power: the resource; wind technology; global status and costs; wind technology manufacturing; policies promoting wind development; project development issues; benefits of wind power; challenges to wind power development and best practices. Policies described include feed-in tariffs; mandatory renewable energy targets (portfolio standards); government auction or resource concessions; financial incentives (loans, wire charges); developer tax incentives and green power markets.

  • 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 Technology Roadmap for CCS in Industry Sectoral Assessment: Refineries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 7, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides an overview of the potential application of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to refineries. It describes the industry today, including its CO2 emissions and goes on to analyse various ways in which CO2 capture technology could be applied. It looks at legislative influences and costs and concludes by identifying challenges and recommended next steps. Transport and storage aspects of CCS are only touched upon as they are common with other industries.

  • 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.

  • Global GHG Abatement Potential for the Nitrogen Fertilizer Industry up to 2030

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 11, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This dissertation studies the global greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement potential of the nitrogen fertilizer industry up to 2030. During the study, a database of the major nitrogen-producing countries that make up 80 per cent of global production was created. The database focused on energy use, energy intensities, GHG emissions and intensities of the three major fertilizers: ammonia, urea and nitric acid.

  • Global Anthropogenic Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions: 1990-2030

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 12, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides historical and projected estimates of emissions of non-carbon-dioxide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from anthropogenic sources. It provides a consistent and comprehensive estimate for 92 individual countries and 8 regions. The analysis provides information that can be used to understand national contributions of GHG emissions, historical progress on reductions and mitigation opportunities. Although this document is being published by the U.S.

  • Global Action to Advance Carbon Capture and Storage

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 4, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Representing one-fifth of total global CO2 emissions currently, industrial sectors such as cement, iron and steel, chemicals and refining are expected to emit even more CO2 over the coming decades. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is currently the only large-scale mitigation option available to cut the emissions intensity of production by over 50 per cent in these sectors. To achieve decarbonisation goals, policymakers must pay more attention to industrial applications of CCS, while not undermining the global competitiveness of these sectors.

  • Free Access Climate Change Data of Worldbank

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    Freely available climate and climate-related data is essential to catalyze the changes in policies, investments and technologies that will be needed if we are to move towards a climate-smart future. The Climate Change Knowledge Portal is a central hub of information, data and reports about climate change around the world. With this portal you can query, map, compare, chart and summarize key climate and climate-related information. Open data: all of the climate data featured on the Climate Change Knowledge Portal has been published as open data resources.
