RENEWABLES 2018 GLOBAL STATUS REPORT (2018) (External Content)

Renewable power accounted for 70% of net additions to global power generating capacity in 2017, but global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose 1.4% in 2017, after three years of holding...

RENEWABLES 2018 GLOBAL STATUS REPORT (2018) (External Content)

Renewable power accounted for 70% of net additions to global power generating capacity in 2017, but global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions rose 1.4% in 2017, after three years of holding steady. The increase in carbon emissions was the result of r ...

Hydrogen from renewable power: Technology outlook for the energy transition (External Content)

As the world strives to cut carbon emissions, electric power from renewables has emerged as a vital energy source. Yet transport and industry will still require combustible fuels for many purposes. Such needs could be met with hydrogen, which itself can b ...

Synergies between renewable energy and energy efficiency 2017 (External Content)

A working paper based on REmap Energy-related emissions represent two-thirds of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Immediate action is needed to start putting the world on a path to net-zero emissions, as per the Paris Agreement. Renewable energy and energy ...
Biofuel potential in Sub-Saharan Africa: Raising food yields, reducing food waste and utilising residues 2017 (External Content)

Biofuel potential in Sub-Saharan Africa: Raising food yields, reducing food waste and utilising residues 2017 (External Content)

Sub-Saharan Africa possesses considerable resources to produce sustainable liquid biofuels, based on biomass feedstocks that would neither conflict with food supplies nor add to carbon dioxide emissions.  Fulfilling the region’s biofuel potential would de ...

Turning to renewables: Climate-safe energy solutions 2017 (External Content)

The Paris Agreement has called for reducing carbon emissions worldwide. But to sufficiently limit the rise in global temperatures, energy use would have to be completely decarbonised in less than 50 years, even amid the expected tripling of the world’s ec ...
Global Landscape of Renewable Energy Finance 2017 (External Content)

Global Landscape of Renewable Energy Finance 2017 (External Content)

Massive flows of finance are needed to accelerate renewable energy investments. More investment in renewables would reduce energy-related carbon emissions, a key element in efforts to limit global warming. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) ...

District Energy Systems in China 2017 (External Content)

China’s district heat network is the world’s largest. In 2015, it consumed more energy than the entire United Kingdom. While progress is being made, the total impact of energy use and emissions from district heating and even district cooling – on the Chin ...
