    Governing clean development in least developed countries: do CDM rules promote renewable energy in Ethiopia?

    Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, 2012
    The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has mobilised significant investment in renewable energy technology around the world. Yet there is a pressing need to reform CDM rules to incentivise renewable energy investment in low-income countries, this paper concludes. The theoretical approach of this study to analysing climate governance processes is grounded in sociological institutionalism.

    Water for electricity: resource scarcity, climate change and business in a finite world

    Stockholm Environment Institute, 2012
    This report examines the potential impact of low carbon electricity generation technologies on water resources and how these water considerations might shape renewable generation choices. 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.
