This paper evaluates the market-based approaches adopted in the MEI projects in Kenya and Burkina Faso. It articulates how such commercial strategies can be applied to the delivery of energy in displacement settings and compares this to real world examples.
This International Energy Agency analysis uses the latest monthly and annual data available from national statistical offices, energy ministries and international organisations to build full energy balances by region.
Key Facts:Electricity emissions contribute a third of Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions. The Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit requires that coal fired electricity be phased out by around 2030 in developed countries including Australia. Coal accounts for 62% of electricity generation in Australia, helping...
Australia’s newest coal plants, including ‘supercritical’ or so-called ‘High Efficiency, Low Emissions’ generators, have higher breakdown rates per gigawatt than older power stations, according to this research from the Australia Institute.
New Zealand’s electricity is secure and affordable. Renewable energy has flourished in a system that for more than 30 years has operated at arm’s length from elected governments – until now. This report outlines what New Zealand should do – and what it must avoid...
The development of hydrogen energy has been promoted as a lower-emissions alternative to Australian coal and gas exports. However, there is a significant risk that the promise of hydrogen as a low-carbon alternative, for domestic use and export, could backfire. The development of Australia’s hydrogen...
America has entered the “coal cost crossover” where existing coal is more expensive than cleaner alternatives. This report shows that today, local wind and solar could replace 74 percent of the U.S. coal fleet at an immediate savings to customers. By 2025, this number grows...
This report looks at the world’s progress towards global energy targets on access to electricity, clean cooking, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Seven million people in the Pacific have no electricity. Those who do are largely reliant on expensive, diesel-fuelled power. This report argues that Australia’s new commitments to the region should focus on this challenge, and that doing so can provide new economic opportunities for Australia’s...
There are plenty of arguments for states pursuing their own renewable energy targets, not least because they can fill the policy vacuum left at the national level.
