- DocumentNorwegian University of Science and Technology, 2016The main objective of this study was to quantify the impacts of climate change on hydropower resources in East Africa thereby providing a basis for integrating the impact of Climate Change in hydropower development in the region.DocumentClimate and Development Knowledge Network, 2017Geothermal development is on the rise in many regions of the world. However, the high costs of field development, coupled with the high risks associated with resource exploration and drilling, still pose a significant barrier to private sector financing.Insurance can mitigate the risks to investors and increase flows of private finance to the industry.Document
Report on the nationally determined contributions survey conducted by the Nairobi Framework Partnership in 2016United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, 2017Countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean urgently need financial support to green their power sectors and thereby implement their national climate action plans under the Paris Climate Change Agreement.DocumentPractical Action [Intermediate Technology Development Group], 2015The productive use of electricity can support sustained poverty reduction by enabling the creation and improvement of income generating activities. However, in order to realise these positive impacts, the level of electricity access must be sufficient and enabling conditions beyond the electricity supply itself must be in place.DocumentInternational Renewable Energy Agency, 2015Renewable energy offers an immediate means to decarbonise the global energy mix. Doubling the share of renewable energy by 2030 could deliver around half of the required emissions reductions and, coupled with energy efficiency, keep the average rise in global temperatures below 2 °C and prevent catastrophic climate change.DocumentBanco Interamericano de Desarrollo / Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), 2015The surge in US natural gas production from the shale boom is transforming global gas markets. Less than a decade ago, with natural gas production on the decline, the United States was expected to become a major importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and a “last resort” market for surplus cargos around the world.DocumentInstitute of Development Studies UK, 2016The importance of ensuring that African countries can meet their rising energyneeds in a low-carbon way that also benefits the poor, is widely accepted.OrganisationArc Finance is a global non-profit that brings together practitioners, funders, pro-poor enterprises, and end-users to develop solutions for access to finance for clean energy and water.OrganisationThe International Energy and Environment Foundation (IEEF) is an independent, non-governmental, non-profit international organisation, which aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, research andDocumentClimate Policy Initiative, 2012This paper analyses the challenges for designing Indian national policy to attract investment in wind and solar energy at a reasonable cost. It also examines the impact of national and state policies on various classes of renewable energy investors, as well as the overall relative costs or benefits of policies on the final cost of renewable energy projects.
