(Nota di lavoro ; 2013.100) http://www.feem.it/userfiles/attach/201311271530174NDL2013-100.pdf Authors’s abstract : Although CO2 emissions stand for most of greenhouse...

How capital-based instruments facilitate the transition toward a low-carbon economy : a tradeoff between optimality and acceptability

This World bank paper compares the temporal profile of efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions induced by two mitigation strategies : a regulation of all emissions with a carbon price and a regulation of emissions embedded in new capital only…

National greenhouse gas emissions baseline scenarios : learning from experiences in Developing countries

This report reviews national approaches to preparing baseline scenarios of greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions. It does so by describing and comparing in non-technical language existing practices and choices made by ten developing countries – Brazil, China, Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam…

Unburnable Carbon 2013: Wasted capital and stranded assets

Using all fossil fuels will breach the global carbon dioxide budget In 2010, governments confirmed in the Cancun Agreement that emissions should be reduced to avoid a rise in global average temperature of more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels, with the possibility of revising this down to 1.5°C. The modelling used in previous analyses by Carbon Tracker and the IEA showed that the carbon budget for a 2°C scenario would be around 565 – 886 billion tonnes (Gt) of carbon dioxide (CO2) to 2050. This outcome assumes that non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. methane and nitrous oxide) remain high…

Energy Efficiency and Conservation: New Tools and Opportunities

Many new and ambitious energy efficiency and conservation laws are being enacted at all levels of government – and with greater financial incentives than provided previously. These innovations are intended to overcome or minimize a variety of market barriers. These innovations, including public-private partnerships, also require significant legal input and creativity to reap the often remarkably large energy and cost savings. This article reviews a range of these tools, especially financial legal mechanisms, that could help significantly reduce U.S. energy consumption.

Energy+ : Opportunities, Challenges and Options

This study was prepared at the request of the Government of Norway (GoN) to support its new climate finance initiative, Energy+. The purpose of that new endeavor is to expand use of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures to increase energy access in the least developed countries and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries.
