The report argues that water requirements for power generation depend on generation technology, type of cooling technology used in thermoelectric power generation and electricity demand itself.DocumentWorld Bank, 2011In many developing countries, the poor are still using biomass energy to meet their household cooking needs. This report examines the lessons learned from cookstove campaigns, policies and programmes and the potential of advanced biomass cookstoves as 'game changers'.DocumentWorld Bank, 2011Scaling-up adoption of renewable energy technology, such as solar home systems, to expand electricity access in developing countries can accelerate the transition to low-carbon economic development. Using a purposely collected national household survey, this study quantifies the carbon and distributional benefits of solar home system programs in Bangladesh.DocumentWorld Bank, 2012This study uses a gendered dynamic CGE model to assess the implications of biofuels expansion in a low-income, land-abundant setting. It compares scenarios with different gender employment intensities in producing jatropha feedstock for biodiesel.OrganisationThe Global Network on Energy for Sustainable Development (GNESD) is a UNEP facilitated knowledge network of Member Centres of Excellence and Associates, and network partners worldwide.
