This paper examines energy efficiency's role in boosting economic growth and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This journal article brings together 50 “new-governance” instruments to understand better new governance for low-carbon buildings and what may be expected from it. The authors find that new-governance instruments fall short in exactly the same areas as do traditional instruments.
This paper describes current carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology, its capacity to address emissions reductions, and challenges associated with the technology.
This report, an annual global review of project development and its drivers, serves as a reference point for the broader carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) community in understanding the "state of play" in the development of CCS activities and projects globally.
This report analyses institutional models and practices that have proved effective in promoting energy efficiency (EE) investments.
This report assesses experience to date in developed Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) economies regarding the interaction of environmental regulations with deployment of clean coal technology.
This "information paper" is directed toward countries that are developing or considering developing near-term regulatory approaches to facilitate carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) demonstration efforts or need comprehensive regulatory frameworks for the large-scale deployment of CCS.
This report discusses the value of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies for developing countries and identifies financial approaches for CCS demonstration. It also addresses a major barrier of CCS development: high-capital cost and energy penalties.
