This work analyses 39 smart city projects that have implemented smart grid technologies in order to make their electricity generation, distribution and consumption more sustainable and efficient. In this first report, six “lighthouse” cases are analyzed in detail.
The objective of this study is to identify (1) how renewable power-to-gas technologies might contribute to the decarbonisation of the non-individual transport sector, (2) the possible limitations on electricity supply and (3) the policy instruments that would most efficiently support market uptak
This online data base collects information on international climate mitigation initiatives in operation that (1) have potential to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, (2) are international in scope or have the potential for significant impact at global scale, and (3) are dialogues,
This report explores potential for urban communities to scale-up renewables by 2030, based on estimated energy use in 3,649 cities around the world. The authors find that every city has massive potential to cost-effectively boost renewable energy use at the local level.
This book steps into the new world of broad-scale and locally relevant policy experimentation. Chapters focus on the political economy of clean energy transition and emphasize specific issues encountered in both developed and developing countries.
This paper explores the extent of alignment between the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and climate agendas in a concrete way—by demonstrating that climate actions communicated in the Intended Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement have the potential to generate mutua
This report informs policymakers and other stakeholders in the energy sector about the technology developments in renewable mini-grids. It also discusses how these technology developments could enable faster commercialization and large-scale deployment of renewable mini-grids.
The collection of case studies from different geographies highlights challenges, breakthrough solutions, project outcomes and the learning from project implementation.
This report examines the technologies, current markets and relative costs for heat and cold energy production using biomass, geothermal and solar-assisted systems. It evaluates a range of national case studies and relevant policies.
