- DocumentAssociation for International Water Studies, Norway, 2010The debate about hydropower has recently been revitalised in the context of climate change and the large unmet demand for energy in many countries. This study is a contribution to the debate about hydropower development, indigenous rights, and the rights of affected communities in the face of development projects, presenting Guatemala as a case study. Main findings include:DocumentTrade Knowledge Network, 2010Mozambique is endowed with a considerable hydropower potential and is rich in modern energy resources. However, more than 80% of the country’s population is not connected to the national grid.Document
Regional energy security dynamics in Southern Africa: electricity mixes in the context of global climate change mitigation pressuresTrade Knowledge Network, 2010Southern Africa is experiencing widespread power shortages. This report looks at the main drivers of electricity generation in the region and evaluates the challenges that the region is likely to face as it seeks to expand its power generating capacity.DocumentTrade Knowledge Network, 2010The energy sector and the provision of electricity for South Africa’s population and industries already comprise a complex issue without including the influence of climate change to the equation. This paper presents the tensions between the country’s energy and climate policies and their implications for the region.DocumentTrade Knowledge Network, 2010Electricity consumption in Argentina has grown at a rate well above the net GDP in the last years, whereas capacity increase has been slower than consumption increase. This report deals with the problem of energy security in Argentina, which implies many challenges for the country.DocumentTrade Knowledge Network, 2010South America has vast energy resources, but countries in the region are unable to guarantee adequate energy security levels for their consumers. This paper argues that the potential economic benefits from the process of South America’s regional energy integration are high, though national regulations impose strong barriers to such a process.DocumentTrade Knowledge Network, 2011Electricity security is central to empowering and sustaining economic development in any country or region. This cross-regional report focuses on electricity supply and the extent to which it is traded within Southern Africa and South America, and the resulting state of electricity supply security in these two regions.OrganisationEnergy Policy is established worldwide as the authoritative journal addressing those issues of energy supply, demand and utilisation that confront decision makers, managers, consultants, politicianDocumentChatham House [Royal Institute of International Affairs], UK, 2009Energy generation, extraction, refining, processing and distribution require a multifaceted global infrastructure. However, much of that infrastructure lies in areas that may become increasingly physically unstable owing to changes in the environment. Of particular concern are disruptions caused or exacerbated by climate change.DocumentSpringerlink, 2008This paper discusses the potential contribution of industrial energy-efficiency technologies and policies to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The article provides a review of the trends, opportunities, and policy options to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the industrial sector.
