As distributed energy resource technologies proliferate on the grid, resulting changes to the grid will make it more efficient and reliable, and will provide end users with the opportunity to more proactively use energy and reduce the cost of services.
This webinar provides an overview of implementing a renewable energy zone (REZ) for integrated transmission and generation planning.
This fact sheet describes how countries that want to foster sustainability and low emission development are establishing renewable energy targets for their electrical supply.
This report examines how ten countries have switched, or are planning to switch, from traditional fuels such as wood, coal, charcoal, animal waste and kerosene, to LPG as a cooking fuel.
This paper describes Africa’s wind energy markets have evolved over the years and the structural characteristics affecting the development of wind energy projects on the continent.
The authors of this study analyse the California electric vehicle market in 2015 to discern best-practice policy and promotion activities that might be emulated elsewhere.
recommend policy changes as well as financing instruments.
Article abstract: "This document reports on the methods used in Phase 1 of The World Bank wind mapping project for Ethiopia. The interim mesoscale modelling results were calculated from the output of simulations using the Weather, Research and Forecasting (WRF) model.
This publication examines the sectors, technologies and policy measures that will be central in the transition to a low-carbon energy system.
