While fossil fuels will inevitably play a major role in expanding on-grid energy supply, this CEPS’s study shows that renewable energy sources – and especially small decentralised solutions – have huge potential for providing reliable, sustainable and affordable energy services for the poor, particularly in rural areas of developing countries

This OECD report outlines a number of steps to be considered when building capacity for greening national development planning, national budgetary processes and key economic sector strategies.
The purpose of this study is to bridge this gap in policy analysis by engaging with relevant stakeholders from the public, private, academic and civil society sectors in the developed and developing world (with a focus on India and Germany) to determine how NAMAs and carbon markets can be combined to enhance mitigation in developing countries…

This SEI’s working paper explores what historical patterns of investment reveal about the potential for the private sector to play a significant role in raising and delivering climate finance, specifically in the context of the adaptation needs of developing countries.
This UNCTAD report identifies key issues in technology and innovation capacity for developing countries in this area, and proposes concrete recommendations for the wider use of renewable energy technologies for sustainable development and poverty reduction
The challenge of providing poor people with access to energy services requires a broader and more ambitious approach, according to this new working paper from the IDS-based STEPS Centre
Most future growth in energy use is forecast to come from the developing world. Understanding the likely pace and specific location of this growth is essential to inform decisions about energy infrastructure investments and to improve greenhouse gas emissions forecasts
In a world where the prospects of a global agreement to control greenhouse gas emissions are bleak, the idea of using trade policy as an implicit regulation of foreign emission sources has gained many supporters in countries contemplating unilateral climate policies…
In this working paper, six developing countries with possible domestic ETS are analysed : Brazil, China, India, Kazakhstan, Mexico, and South Korea.
Sustainable Cooperation in Global Climate Policy: Specific Formulas and Emission Targets to Build on Copenhagen and Cancun
The authors offer a framework to assign quantitative allocations of emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), across countries, one budget period at a time…

An ESMAP report on policy options for power sector market structures
This WRI’s report makes the business case for private sector adaptation to climate change in ways that build the resilience of vulnerable communities in developing countries
The objective of this ESMAP’s paper is to shed some light on the benefits of improved access to electricity supply, specifically the benefits referred to as, ‘consumer’s surplus’, which is the difference between what customers are willing to pay for the utilities associated with electricity access and the price that they actually pay.
