This study underscores how improved access to rural energy services can create multiple benefits for rural life, from income and labor productivity to education and women's health.
This calculator translates carbon dioxide emissions quantities into easy to understand terms, such as the "equivalent of the carbon dioxide emissions of 183,000 cars annually." It is designed to facilitate communication of greenhouse gas reduction targets, strategies, and successes of various in
This calculator accounts for capital costs, operations and maintenance, performance, and fuel costs to estimate the levelized cost of energy, expressed in cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), for both utility-scale and distributed generation renewable energy technologies.
Small, modular biomass gasifiers are an emerging technology for enhancing the economic productivity of small agricultural-based communities, especially when combined with the “multi-function platform” concept.
This study examines the opportunities and constraints associated with the development of second-generation biofuels in the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) region, based on a review of existing environmentally sound technologies that can be accessed by small and medium ent
This presentation shows the results of the Institute for Building Efficiency's 2012 energy efficiency survey. The institute surveyed nearly 3,500 decision makers in a variety of sectors who are responsible for energy use in buildings—examining trends in priorities and practices.
The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. We need a transformation of the UK economy while ensuring secure, low carbon energy supplies to 2050, and face major choices about how to do this.
