  • Southeast Asia Energy Outlook

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 9, 2013
    Objective: 

    The 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are--along with China and India--shifting the centre of gravity of the global energy system to Asia. Southeast Asia is an extremely diverse set of countries with vast differences in the scale and patterns of energy use and energy resource endowments. Since 1990, the region's energy demand has expanded two-and-a-half times.

  • SE4ALL Global Tracking Framework

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, May 28, 2013
    Objective: 

    This report is the first of a series to monitor progress towards the three objectives of the Sustainable Energy for All initiative. It puts numbers to each objective, identifies what needs to change and outlines how progress can be made.

  • Same Energy, More Power: Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Asia

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

    This report examines prospects for Asian Development Bank (ADB) to ramp up efforts in the region for greater utilization of demand-side energy efficiency (DSEE), the most cost-effective source of energy supply. DSEE (or end-use EE) relies on improved efficiencies at the point of final energy consumption--for example, when operating buildings, tools, products and machinery. The report further identifies global and regional trends that are driving Asia's energy demand and the resulting policy and regulatory environment for energy efficiency.

  • Renewable Energy Toolkit (REToolkit)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 1, 2011
    Objective: 

    REToolkit provides a broad set of tools to assist bank staff and country counterparts in improving the design and implementation of renewable energy (RE) projects, incorporate best practices and lessons learned from RE projects supported by the World Bank Group and other institutions and is operationally oriented to address practical implementation needs at each stage in the RE project cycle.

  • Renewable Energy Technologies Cost Analysis Series: Solar Photovoltaics

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 6, 2012
    Objective: 

    Renewable energy technologies can help countries meet their policy goals for secure, reliable and affordable energy to expand electricity access and promote development. This paper on solar photovoltaics is part of a series on the cost and performance of renewable energy technologies produced by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The goal of these papers is to assist government decision-making and ensure that governments have access to up-to-date and reliable information on the costs and performance of renewable energy technologies.

  • Renewable Energy Country Profiles for Asia: January 2013 Edition

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

    International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) renewable energy country profiles take stock of the latest developments in the field of renewables at country level around the world. Each profile combines analysis by IRENA's specialists with the latest available country data and additional information from a wide array of sources. The resulting reports provide a brief yet comprehensive picture of the situation with regard to renewable energy, including energy supply, electrical generation and grid capacity and access.

  • Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Foam Blowing Sectors Technology Roadmap

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, October 1, 2012
    Objective: 

    The roadmap developed by Proklima incorporates 15 years of experiences by Proklima and other implementing agencies that have been active in the field, mainly under the Montreal Protocol but also under the UNFCCC (e.g., CDM). Mitigation strategies for both direct and indirect emissions of the refrigeration, air conditioning and foam blowing sectors have been utilised to develop low carbon strategies up to 2050. The establishment of an enabling environment is presented as an integral part of the technology roadmap.

  • Rainfall Shocks, Food Prices Vulnerability and Food Security: Evidence for Sub-Saharan African Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 10, 2012
    Objective: 

    This conference paper explores food market vulnerability and security as related to rainfall shocks across Sub-Saharan Africa by applying econometric methods across a wide range of developed and developing countries. The paper is focused on methods of improving access to affordable food supplies for developing countries during times of dire need.

  • Policies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Industry--Successful Approaches and Lessons Learned: Workshop Report

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2003
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The industry sector is an important direct and indirect source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Annex I countries. Emissions from the industry sector are expected to draw increasing attention by policymakers as they look for means to reduce domestic GHG emissions. For this reason, the Annex I Expert Group (AIXG) on the UNFCCC decided to hold a workshop in Berlin on 2-3 December 2002 to discuss the range of policies to reduce GHG emissions in industry, with a focus on voluntary approaches (VAs), taxes and trading.

  • Policies and Practices for Low-Carbon Green Growth in Asia: ADB-ADBI Study on Climate Change and Green Asia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 4, 2012
    Objective: 

    This book is based on the recognition that low-carbon green growth is an imperative for developing Asia. The study aims to share with developing nations the experiences of advanced Asian economies and the lessons they have learned, while widening and deepening actions in both. The study reviews and assesses the low-carbon and green policies and practices taken by Asian countries while identifying gaps and examining the new opportunities for low-carbon green growth. This study recognizes low-carbon green growth as an imperative not an option for developing Asia.
