The Sustainable Energy Marketplace is a virtual platform that gathers renewable energy actors and IRENA's expertise and work to pursue together the deployment of renewable energies in developing countries.
This working paper undertakes econometric analysis to assess the impacts of climate mitigation policies and the quality of the investment environment on investment and innovation in renewable power in OECD and G20 countries.
Rising global population numbers and economic development could likely cause an increase in natural resource demand over the coming decades, while at the same time climate change might lead to lower overall water availability.
This report highlights the paths—in some cases accelerated—that the European Union, United States and other “solar-friendly” countries have chosen to reach their goals of growing the solar market, combatting climate change and creating jobs and economic opportunities through 2020.
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.
A modified engineering model is proposed to estimate standby power and energy losses in households. The modified model accounts for the randomness of standby power and energy losses due to unpredicted user appliance operational behavior.
This paper describes current carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology, its capacity to address emissions reductions, and challenges associated with the technology.
This report provides insights into how countries can address lack of electricity access in slums. It includes examples of approaches taken in the Philippines, South Africa, Brazil, and India.
This task of the International Energy Agency is a broad, systematic examination of the potential for demand-side management (DSM) to provide cost-effective benefits for electricity networks.
