This report summarizes the Next-Generation Wind and Solar Power study, which was carried out by the International Energy Agency (IEA) as part of its Grid Integration of Variable Renewables (GIVAR) programme.
This publication provides an overview of the activities and recent accomplishments of technology collaboration programmes (TCPs). The 39 TCPs in operation involve about 6,000 experts from government, industry and research organizations in 51 countries.
The Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) works to enable greater dialogue, collaboration and awareness on energy and climate topics. ECPA initiatives include:
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.
This assessment was conducted to identify and understand the degree to which gender considerations have been addressed in energy policies, plans and strategies worldwide.
The objective of this study is to analyse the scale and scope of investments in low-carbon technologies in power generation, transport, buildings and industry (including heating and cooling) that are needed to facilitate an energy transition in a cost-effective manner while also working towards
