    Objective: 

    Context

    Belgrade's district heating (DH) system is one of the largest in Europe with a total network length of 1420 km and capacity of over 2800 MW. The majority of the network is run on the natural gas boilers and fuel oil boilers with no waste heat from cogeneration or other sources being used and very little renewables (0,75% of capacity). Energy efficiency of the building stock is quite low, and the intensity of energy consumption is high. The city needs harmonized approaches to efficiency.

    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This review of national greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation planning in the agriculture sector serves two objectives: (1) to provide national policymakers and others in the agriculture sector with an overview of national mitigation planning processes and aid them in identifying the relevance of these processes for promoting agricultural development; (2) to provide policymakers and advisors involved in low-emission development planning processes with an overview of mitigation planning in the agriculture sector and in particular to highlight the relevance of agriculture to national mitigation pla

  • 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

    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.

  • CO2 and Energy Accounting and Reporting Standard for the Cement Industry

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 5, 2011
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Under the umbrella of the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), a number of leading cement companies are collaborating on monitoring and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. One of these issues is the industry"s emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main GHG contributing to man-made global warming. This revised Version 3 of the Cement CO2 and Energy Protocol is published in May 2011 and is intended to be applied for reporting of data starting in the year 2011.
