This report identifies useful regulatory practices for the era of rapidly improving renewable energy technologies. It draws key insights from experiences with integrated resource planning (IRP) in South Africa and the US.
As the first global, comprehensive analysis of corporate sourcing of renewable electricity, this report highlights the latest trends and provides recommendations to more fully exploit such potential.
Panama has vast potential to develop renewables. The National Energy Plan suggests that as much as 70% of the country’s energy supply could be renewable by 2050.
Panamá tiene un gran potencial para desarrollar energías renovables. El Plan Nacional de Energía sugiere que hasta un 70% del suministro de energía del país podría ser renovable en 2050.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) produces comprehensive renewable energy statistics on a range of topics. This publication presents renewable power generation capacity statistics for the last decade (2008-2017).
This study describes Finland's approach to sustainable biomass supply based on forest wood resources, offering insights to other countries on how to develop forest bioenergy.
This study analyses the prospective impact of renewable energy deployment, along with recently mandated changes to power plant cooling systems, on water use in India’s electricity sector.
This report highlights the latest trends for each of the main renewable power technologies, based on the latest cost and auction price data from projects around the world. Among the report’s key findings: Renewable power generation costs continue to fall and are already very competitive to meet needs for new capacity. Auctions are rapidly driving down costs in...
This report evaluates Thailand’s options for power generation, transport development, thermal and bioenergy use, and identifies the key challenges in scaling up renewables.
This study shows that battery electricity storage systems offer enormous deployment and cost-reduction potential. By 2030, total installed costs could fall between 50% and 60% (and battery cell costs by even more), driven by optimisation of manufacturing facilities, combined with better combinations and reduced use of materials.
