  • Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2016

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, March 1, 2016
    Objective: 

    In 2015, global investment in renewables grew about 5 percent relative to the previous year and reached an all-time high of US$ 286 billion (bn). And there are more interesting trends: Investment in renewables’ based electricity generation capacity in 2015 has been more than double the investment in the major fossil fuels (renewables: US$ 266 bn versus US$ 130 bn for coal and gas stations). This also leads to added capacity in terms of Gigawatts in 2015 in renewables (134 GW) outstripping all other technologies combined (conventional coal, gas, and nuclear).

  • Exploration Risk for Geothermal Power Investments - Approaches across the globe

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, February 1, 2016
    Objective: 

    Generating electric power based on geothermal energy is attractive (i) because of the low CO2 emissions and (ii) because electricity can be produced constantly, independent of the availability of wind or sunlight. These characteristics make geothermal energy an important option for safe, cost-effective and climate friendly power production. The main caveats are that geothermal energy is not available everywhere and that it is uncertain whether the resource will actually be found at a given site.

  • Covenant of Mayors: A path towards energy efficiency and climate protection in municipalities

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, June 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    The demand for energy across the globe continues to grow. Cities account for approximately two thirds of energy consumed worldwide and 70 % of the greenhouse gas emissions related to people. Energy prices have experienced nothing but growth for years now. Even in places where prices for electricity and heating appear low from a customer standpoint, subsidies actually end up footing the bill in many cases, which are in turn covered by national budgets that are funded by tax payers.

  • Low-carbon, cost-efficient, cosy: Efficient lighting for public buildings

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, June 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    In public buildings lighting accounts for about 40% of the electricity costs. If you multiply this figure by the number of kindergartens, schools and universities, town halls, local government buildings and government departments, libraries, swimming pools and hospitals, then the total is enormous. Lighting in public buildings is currently consuming far more energy than necessary, with all the negative side-effects such as high running costs, electricity bottlenecks and damage to the climate. That can easily be changed.
