  • Industrial Efficiency Financing Database (IEFD)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    This database identifies vehicles and programs that have successfully delivered industrial energy efficiency financing.

  • Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    The database describes energy efficiency policies and measures carried in about 90 countries throughout the world.

  • Global Protocol for Community-Scale GHG Emissions (GPC)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    A framework for accounting and reporting city-wide greenhouse gas emissions. It offers guidance to cities on developing a comprehensive greenhouse gas inventory, including establishing the base year for the inventory, setting emissions reduction targets and tracking cities’ performance. The tool also allows for aggregation of the estimates at the subnational and national levels.

  • Tool for Rapid Assessment of City Energy (TRACE)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    This tool is a decision-support tool designed to help cities quickly identify under-performing sectors, evaluate improvement and cost-saving potential, and prioritize sectors and actions for energy efficiency (EE) intervention. It covers six municipal sectors: passenger transport, municipal buildings, water and waste water, public lighting, solid waste, and power and heat.

  • Energy Efficiency (Policies and Measures Database)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    The Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures database provides information on policies and measures taken or planned to improve energy efficiency. The database further supports the IEA G8 Gleneagles Plan of Action mandate to “share best practice between participating governments”, and the agreement by IEA Energy Ministers in 2009 to promote energy efficiency and close policy gaps.

  • Green Resources & Energy Analysis Tool (GREAT)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    The GREAT Tool for Cities is an integrated bottom-up, energy end-use based modelling and accounting tool for tracking energy consumption, production and resource extraction in all economic sectors on a city, provincial or regional level. The model uses the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning System (LEAP) software developed by the Stockholm Environmental Institute and includes a national average dataset on energy input parameters for residential, commercial, transport, industry and agriculture end-use sectors.

  • Commercial Building Analysis Tool for Energy-Efficient Retrofits (COMBAT)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Objective: 

    The Commercial Building Analysis Tool for Energy-Efficiency Retrofit (COMBAT) is created to facilitate policy makers, facility managers, and building retrofit practitioners to estimate commercial (public) buildings retrofit energy saving, cost and payback period. Common commercial building models area created, and the retrofit measures and their effects are pre-computed by EnergyPlus by taking different building types and measures interactions into account.

  • Hydrological Zoning

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 25, 2017
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Hydrological zoning (or simply zoning) is an approach to divide land into different zones based on their hydrological properties. Typically, each type of zone has different land use and development regulations linked to it. This land and water management method aims to protect local water sources from risks of over-abstraction, land salinization, groundwater pollution and waterlogging by managing land use activities based on the assigned hydrological zones.  For example, zones with a high groundwater table, large amounts of surface water (e.g.

  • Communicating Extreme Weather Event Attribution: Research from Kenya and India

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

    Climate change attribution analysis assesses the likelihood that a particular extreme weather event has been made more or less likely as a result of anthropogenic climate change. Communication of extreme event attribution information in the immediate aftermath of an extreme event provides a window of opportunity to inform, educate, and affect a change in attitude or behaviour in order to mitigate or prepare for climate change.

  • Keep climate change top of the global agenda

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

    Climate change is happening now and its effects are felt most by the world’s poorest and most marginalised communities. Please share to keep climate change top of the global agenda.
