Solar Power Forecasting for Grid Operations: Evaluation of Commercial Providers

For grid operators, accurate solar power forecasting promises to increase the efficiency of tasks such as unit commitment and dispatch, trading, and ancillary service provision while facilitating further integration of renewables.




Mini-Grid Policy Toolkit

This Mini-Grid Policy Toolkit therefore provides much-needed orientation and guidance for policymakers and assists in shaping the policies needed to effectively promote mini-grid deployment. The Toolkit is a tangible result of the Africa-EU Energy Partnership (AEEP), which was funded under the Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme (RECP). The African Union Commission (AUC) has been providing political leadership in the AEEP. The RECP is thus proving an important complementary initiative to the African priority agenda, the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA). While PIDA focuses on large-scale power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure, the RECP provides highly appreciated and valuable support to the development of opportunities in the field of small- and medium-scale renewable energy.



Sustainable Banking Network – Global Progress Report

The report presents a systematic view of progress toward sustainable finance among the emerging economies represented by SBN. It is based on a unique measurement framework to assess sustainable finance initiatives across emerging markets. The Global Progress Report was informed by country progress reports that were prepared for 15
SBN members implementing sustainable finance policy initiatives. Country specific reports detail each country’s good practice and highlight areas of focus to support and encourage members to further accelerate efforts in sustainable finance. With $38.3 trillion in banking assets, these 15 member countries account for more than 76 percent of emerging market banking assets.




Electric Buses in Cities: Driving Towards Cleaner Air and Lower CO2

Cities around the world are introducing electric buses, driven by growing concerns over urban air quality, carbon emissions and potential operational cost savings. The timing is now right for cities to start shifting to electrified transport but there are still several barriers to widespread adoption.



Consumption based GHG emissions of C40 cities

New research by C40 Cities, the University of Leeds, University of New South Wales, and Arup examines the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with goods and services consumed by residents of cities such as food, clothing, electronic equipment, airplane travel, delivery trucks and construction industries. The findings reveal a detailed picture of the supply chains and sphere of impact that mayors, businesses and citizens can potentially influence with their climate action.
