  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Market Potential of Innovative E-Waste Recycling Technologies in Developing Countries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This paper presents the analysis of the market potential of innovative technologies for the e-waste recycling sector in selected developing countries. Criteria to compare and select innovative technologies are grouped along the elements of sustainability. The analysis rated a few technologies to have an innovation potential for developing countries. Based on a selection of developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the study suggests that all countries would have a potential for the adaptation of the mentioned pre-processing technologies.

  • "Climate-Smart" Agriculture: Policies, Practices and Financing for Food Security, Adaptation and Mitigation

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 1, 2010
    Objective: 

    The authors of this paper outline the changes that agriculture will have to see until 2050 in the face of both climate change and rapidly growing demand. While agricultural efficiency has grown significantly in a very short period of time, the authors stress that there is much more to the problem than simple increases in acreage for production.

  • 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.

  • Understanding Integration Aspects: Renewable Power and Energy Fractions

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, January 1, 2017
    Objective: 

    This paper introduces the Renewable Power Fraction and Renewable Energy Fraction as self-defining metrics to quantify and visualise the performance of renewable generators versus the total load, and show how corresponding Fossil or Demand Side Management Power and Energy Fractions can similarly be defined.

  • mfarmPay: Driving Climate Financing to Rural Smallholder African Farmers

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 8, 2019

    Smallholder farmers and lenders with smallholder lending portfolios ( which according to CGAP currently account for about USD 50 billion globally) are highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. mfarmPay, a novel parametric lending solution driving financing to African farmers, offers innovative data-driven solution to reducing climate risk in lending portfolios and incentivising the adoption of climate-smart farming approaches by smallholder food producers.

  • Renewable Energy Technologies Cost Analysis Series: Hydropower

    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 hydropower 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.

  • International Renewable Energy Agency Renewable Energy Country Profiles

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

    The IRENA Renewable Energy Country Profiles combine elements of IRENA analysis with the latest information available from a vast array of sources in order to give a brief yet comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the situation of renewable energy that includes energy supply, electrical capacity, energy access, policies, targets, investment climate, projects and endowment in renewable energy resources. Because of the different timelines of these sources, data presented here refer to years between 2008 and 2012.
