  • CO2 utilization in the perspective of industrial ecology, an overview

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, July 4, 2016
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Carbon dioxide emissions from anthropic activities have accumulated in the atmosphere in excess of 800 Gigatons since preindustrial times, and are continuously increasing. Among other strategies, CO2 capture and storage is one option to mitigate the emissions from large point sources. In addition, carbon dioxide extraction from ambient air is assessed to reduce the atmospheric concentration of CO2. Both direct and indirect (through photosynthesis) pathways are possible.

  • Developing 2°C compatible investment criteria

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, November 30, 2015

    This report studies the development of criteria for assessing the compatibility of financial investments with the international goal to limit global temperature increase to below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. The findings are intended as a starting point and a key input for a longer term process to develop consensus-based 2°C investing criteria. The focus here is placed on investments in projects and physical assets, in particular of development and climate finance organisations.

  • NAMA Guidebook - Manual for practitioners working with mitigation actions (First Edition)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, October 1, 2014
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Manual for practitioners working with mitigation actions.

    Articles and case studies about NAMAs written by several international research organizations.

  • NAMA Guidebook (2nd edition)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, October 1, 2015
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Articles and case studies about NAMAs written by several international research organizations.

  • NAMA Guidebook (3rd edition)

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

    In the absence of specific guidelines from the UNFCCC on how to develop NAMAs, implementing organizations, donors, and host countries have been formulating NAMAs in a trial-and-error basis. By extracting lessons from these experiences, the previous version of this guidebook introduced basic elements of NAMAs and also different approaches for NAMA-related decisions.

  • A Global Platform for Accelerating Coal Efficiency

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    This is a concept paper on the Platform for Accelerating Coal Efficiency (PACE). The vision of PACE would be that for countries choosing to use coal, the most efficient power plant technology possible is deployed. The overriding objective would be to raise the global average efficiency of coal-fired power plants and so minimise CO2 emissions which will otherwise be emitted while maintaining legitimate economic development and poverty alleviation efforts.

  • The power of high efficienty coal

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    As the Paris Agreement is formalised and NDCs are standardised, it is a fair to assume that other countries will look to HELE coal technologies as part of their emissions reductions plans.

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    Position statement by the World Coal Association for COP 21 in Paris.

  • Carbon capture and storage - the vital role of CCS in an effective COP21 agreement

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    Overview of the World Coal Asssocation's position on the importance of CCS to achieve the required levelsof emissions reduction, whilst supporting coal's significant role in the future energy mix.
