The empirics of enabling investment and innovation in renewable energy

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. It also assesses how countries’ investment environments interact with climate mitigation policies to influence investment and patent activity in renewable power.

La economía del cambio climático en América Latina y el Caribe: paradojas y desafíos del desarrollo sostenible

En los últimos años, América Latina y el Caribe muestra un crecimiento económico importante que ha derivado en una mejora de las condiciones económicas y sociales. Sin embargo, ello ha tenido también efectos colaterales negativos, tales como una mayor contaminación atmosférica en las áreas urbanas y un deterioro importante de diversos activos naturales, como los recursos no renovables, el agua y los bosques. Además, se observan economías y sociedades con una alta vulnerabilidad ante cualquier tipo de impactos adversos, tales como los efectos climáticos, y con una matriz productiva y de consumo aún proclive a presentar altos niveles de emisiones de carbono.

Beyond The Meter: Planning the Distributed Energy Future, Volume I

The traditional distribution system planning framework is no longer sufficient to ensure grid reliability as distributed energy resource (DER) penetration increases.

Changes are driven by the customer seeking new choices around energy, technological development leading to lower costs and better performance, and new policies and regulatory proceedings. The transition to a higher-DER grid is requiring utilities and utility customers to embrace DERs in many forms.

Beyond The Meter: Planning the Distributed Energy Future, Volume II

A new distribution system planning framework is emerging among utilities seeking to proactively plan for integration as distributed energy resource (DER) penetration increases.

Changes are driven by the customer seeking new choices around energy, technological development leading to lower costs and better performance, and new policies and regulatory proceedings. The transition to a higher-DER grid is requiring utilities and utility customers to embrace DERs in many forms.

World Energy Scenarios 2017 | LATIN AMERICA & THE CARIBBEAN Energy Scenarios

The report ‘LATIN AMERICA &  THE CARIBBEAN Energy Scenarios’ presents three scenarios − Samba, Tango and Rock − as distinct trajectories for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) energy sector to 2060. This report is a first exploration of regional deep-dive scenarios and provides the basis and framework for the LAC region.

The framework which consists of Modern Jazz, Unfinished Symphony and Hard Rock, which have been developed for the report ‘World Energy Scenarios 2016: THE GRAND TRANSITION‘ is used as a lens to test and explore how the key driving forces manifest and to investigate possible development trajectories for the LAC region, resulting into three scenarios: Samba, Tango and Rock. The scenarios identify key areas for action: government policy directions, new energy opportunities, climate-related policies and the need for macro-risk management.
