This paper synthesizes findings from technology mapping studies of the renewable energy supply, residential and commercial buildings and transport sectors. The objective of the mapping studies was to identify key climate-mitigation technologies and associated goods. This paper also analyses the key drivers of technology deployment, policies and measures that help overcome barriers to renewable energy generation, improved energy efficiency and certain aspects of international trade.
