  • The Political Economy of Clean Energy Transitions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, July 21, 2017

    This book steps into the new world of broad-scale and locally relevant policy experimentation. Chapters focus on the political economy of clean energy transition and emphasize specific issues encountered in both developed and developing countries. The authors contribute diversity of experience drawn from all major regions of the world, representing a compendium of what has been learned from recent initiatives—mostly at the country level—to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Capturing the Multi-Dimensionality of Energy Access

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, May 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    This brief publication describes how a multi-tier approach to measuring energy access proposed in the SE4ALL Global Tracking Framework of 2013 introduces a five-tier measurement methodology based on various energy attributes, such as quantity, quality, affordability and duration of supply. According to the authors, the approach makes it possible to compute a weighted index of access to energy for a given geographical area.

  • The State Energy Efficiency Scorecard

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    The State Scorecard assesses state policies and programs that improve energy efficiency in our homes, businesses, industries, and transportation systems. It considers the six policy areas in which states typically pursue energy efficiency: utility and public benefits, transportation, building energy codes and compliance, combined heat and power (CHP), state government–led initiatives around energy efficiency, and appliance and equipment standards.

    Publication
    Objective: 

    The Institute for Industrial Productivity’s database provides information on industrial energy efficiency and greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation policies.

  • Clean Energy Policy Resources - By Technology

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    These pages provide access to technical clean energy resources -reports, data, and tools- for a wide range of technologies, covering energy efficiency, renewable energy, clean transport and more.

  • Industrial Efficiency Program Database (IEPrD)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    This database contains information about energy management and utility obligation programs, and includes program descriptions, evaluations and assessments.

  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.
