- DocumentOverseas Development Institute, 2017Ending subsidies to fossil fuel production is often a missing piece of comprehensive climate action plans.OrganisationThe Ministry of Power started functioning independently with effect from 2nd July, 1992. Earlier it was known as the Ministry of Energy sources.Document
Global energy markets: What do African resource finds mean for global energy supply in relation to demand in coming years?Economic and Private Sector PEAKS, 2012This paper explores the significance of recent African fossil fuel reserve discoveries in the context of future world energy demand.DocumentEcologic Centre for International and European Environmental Research, Berlin, 2012Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) are seen as a pivotal means for enhanced mitigation in developing countries, but the design and implementation complexities of NAMAs are still unclear. This paper sheds light on how carbon markets can be utilised to support NAMAs in developing countries, trying to find out an optimal combination of NAMAs and carbon markets.Document
Ethanol production and fuel substitution in Nepal - Opportunity to promote sustainable development and climate change mitigationScience Direct, 2010This paper explores the potential for ethanol production and fuel substitution in Nepal based on established sugarcane production, installed capacity for sugar and ethanol production, economic opportunities for the national economy and the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is based on extensive research on the change in fossil fuel sales from 1996 to 2007, patterns of passengeDocumentSpringerlink, 2010Set against the backdrop of the challenges that exist at the interface of energy, environment, and development, this paper presents the different perspectives on ‘peak oil’ - the point where global petroleum production will peak and then begin to decline.DocumentScience Direct, 2011This paper discusses the competition for land resources and the issue of land-use change due to the rising demand for food and energy, specifically for the transport sector. The linkages between land, food, and energy become particularly complex within the context of climate change.DocumentEconomics Web Institute, 2010This paper outlines a scheme for the financial mobilisation of a ‘Green Fund’ with the capacity to raise resources on a scale proportionate with the Copenhagen Accord (USD 100 billion a year by 2020).DocumentWorld Bank, 2011Fossil fuels remain a vast energy resource, are widely distributed around the world, and remain heavily relied upon for energy generation. Reducing local pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the combustion and processing of these fossil fuels is set to be one of the world’s biggest challenges in the years ahead.Document2007Central American states are aware of the implications of the climate change challenge and are attempting to combat it through the use of the abundant renewable resources of the region for energy generation and fossil fuels substitution. At the international level, the markets for greenhouse gas emission reductions and renewable electricity certificates have been fragmented.
