  • 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.

    Knowledge Partner

    The Carbon Trust was incorporated in 2001. The organization conducts studies and research as they relate to Climate Innovation Centres, renewable energies, energy efficiency, and policy planning. Moreover, Carbon Trust works on reduction, resource efficiency strategies and commercialising low carbon technologies. They have both domestic and global profile some of which involved transferring experiences of industrialized countries to developing countries at both policy and enterprise level.

  • Global Action to Advance Carbon Capture and Storage

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, January 4, 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Representing one-fifth of total global CO2 emissions currently, industrial sectors such as cement, iron and steel, chemicals and refining are expected to emit even more CO2 over the coming decades. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is currently the only large-scale mitigation option available to cut the emissions intensity of production by over 50 per cent in these sectors. To achieve decarbonisation goals, policymakers must pay more attention to industrial applications of CCS, while not undermining the global competitiveness of these sectors.
