  • Carbon Value Analysis Tool

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday, June 1, 2008

    The Carbon Value Analysis Tool (CVAT) is a screening tool to help companies integrate the value of carbon dioxide emissions reductions into energy-related investment decisions. The tool is used to test the sensitivity of a project’s internal rate of return to carbon value and to facilitate the development of emissions reduction strategies by developing a Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) across a portfolio of projects.

  • Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment Programme's Renewable Energy Resource Explorer

    Type: 
    Publication

    The Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment Programme's Renewable Energy Resource Explorer (RREX) is a web-based map viewer that displays data from SWERA, the UNEP renewable resource assessment program. The viewer allows you to click the map for any location in the world, and displays annual average estimates for the solar and wind resource and climate data at the location. Downloadable monthly average data is also available for each location along with information about the data sources.

  • Model for Energy Supply System Alternatives and their General Environmental Impacts

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, December 1, 2007

    MESSAGE combines technologies and fuels to construct so-called "energy chains", making it possible to map energy flows from supply to demand. The model can help design long term strategies by analyzing cost optimal energy mixes, investment needs and other costs for new infrastructure, energy supply security, energy resource utilization, rate of introduction of new technologies (technology learning), environmental constraints, etc.

  • Model for Evaluating the Regional and Global Effects of GHG Reduction Policies

    Type: 
    Publication

    MERGE quantifies alternative ways of thinking about climate change. The model is sufficiently flexible to explore views on a wide range of contentious issues: costs of abatement, damages of climate change, valuation and discounting.

  • REN21 Renewables 2012 Global Status Report: Asia and the Pacific

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, September 5, 2012

    With a focus on Asia and the Pacific, this webinar—part of a series—presents the findings of REN21’s Renewables 2012 Global Status Report, which addresses the cumulating effect of steady growth in renewable energy markets, support policies and investment over the past years.

  • IRENA Portal for Studies on Renewable Energy Potential

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, November 1, 2012

    This portal provides access to over 10,000 existing references of studies on renewable resources and potentials available worldwide. The information on this portal is presented using interactive flash maps with color codes that indicate the number of references available by country. Renewable energy resources considered include biomass, geothermal energy, hydropower, marine, solar and wind energy.

  • Sustainable Energy Regulation Network (SERN) Policy Database

    Type: 
    Publication

    This database provides energy information for countries throughout the world, including Africa; the Baltic States, Central Europe, and Eastern Europe; Latin America and the Caribbean; the Middle East; Russia and FSU; South Asia; South East Asia; and the Pacific Region. For each country, the database provides information on energy sources, reliance, electrification expansion, capacity concerns, renewable energy, energy efficiency, ownership, competition, framework, national energy priorities, the role of government, and regulation.

  • Clean Energy Info Portal: reegle (Website)

    Type: 
    Publication

    This database provides global information on renewable energy, energy efficiency, and climate change, including country energy profiles, a list of key global stakeholders, policy and regulatory overviews, an energy and climate change glossary, a clean energy Web search, geobrowsing features, and a clean energy blog.

  • Project Outputs Database (Website)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, March 1, 2012

    This web-based database provides detailed project output documents from Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) projects. The database contains output documents from specific types of energy access, energy efficiency, and renewable energy programmes. These documents can be searched based for certain technologies or particular countries. Output documents are in English, Spanish, Chinese, French, and Portuguese. REEEP projects aim to improve access to clean and reliable energy in developing countries.

  • Policy and Regulatory Overviews (Website)

    Type: 
    Publication

    reegle's policy and regulatory overviews provide country highlights for a variety of policies and regulations relating to energy, energy efficiency, fuels, standards and labeling, incentives such as feed-in tariffs for renewables, national targets, and other national strategies for low-carbon development.
