IEA OPEN Energy Technology Bulletin - 0 views

  • When it comes to energy use there is nothing quite as unpredictable as human behaviour. Understanding the complex range of factors that influence energy end-use behaviour will be the focus of a new two-year project to be undertaken by the Demand-Side Management Programme
  • Making the switch to the large-scale renewable energy systems required to combat climate change will require public and private capital investment on a massive scale.

The cost of fossil fuel subsidies: $557bn | FT Energy Source | FT.com - 0 views

  • Thirty-seven of the world’s biggest developing countries are spent $557bn subsidising fossil fuels that year, according to new estimates by the IEA seen by the FT.

Sectoral Approaches in Electricity : Building Bridges to a Safe Climate « RFF... - 2 views

  • Electricity accounts for more than 40 % of global energy-related CO2 emissions. This issue is most pressing for developing countries where growth in power demand is particularly high, fueling the risk of irreversible investment in CO2-intensive capacity, the so-called “carbon lock-in”.

    Sectoral Approaches in Electricity – Building Bridges to a Safe Climate shows how the international climate policy framework could effectively support a transition towards low-CO2 electricity systems in developing countries. Sectoral approaches are intended to address sectors that require urgent actions, without waiting for countries to take nation-wide commitments.

IEA report puts doubt into carbon capture - 1 views

  •  
    If a report released Tuesday by the International Energy Agency is correct, then the $2 billion committed by the Alberta government toward the development of carbon capture and storage is nothing more than a drop in the bucket.

    The IEA estimates it will cost as much as $10 trillion U.S. between 2010 and 2030 for the world to keep carbon dioxide emissions below 450 parts per million and temperatures from rising more than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

    While that level of investment might be enough for even the most ardent climate change advocate to throw their hands up and surrender, there's a little bit of good news to be found in the report.

Half of Global Electricity To Come From Renewables IEA Says - 0 views

  • Nearly 50% of global electricity supplies must come from renewable energy sources in order to cut CO2 emissions in half by 2050, the International Energy Agency (IEA) says in its latest study, “Deploying Renewables: Principles for Effective Policies.”

International Energy Agency - Energy Publications - 0 views

  • Improvements in energy efficiency over the past three decades have played a key role in limiting global increases in energy use and CO2 emissions. For IEA countries, energy efficiency gains since 1990 have led to annual energy savings of more than 16 EJ in 2005 and 1.3 Gt of avoided CO2 emissions. However, the recent rate of efficiency improvement has been much lower than in the past. The good news is that a large potential remains for further energy and CO2 savings across all sectors. In industry alone, the application of proven technologies and best practices on a global scale could save between 1.9 Gt and 3.2 Gt of CO2 emissions per year. In public power generation, if all countries produced electricity at current best practice levels, CO2 savings would be between 1.8 Gt and 2.5 Gt.

Wind Power Need Not Be Backed Up By An Equal Amount Of Reserve Power - 0 views

  • The production of wind power varies and is harder to forecast than the fluctuations in electricity demand.
  • The results indicate that the frequently stated claim of wind power requiring an equal amount of reserve power for back-up is not correct. A substantial adjustment tolerance is already built in to our power network, and the impacts of wind power fluctuations can be further balanced through a variety of measures.
  • The impact of a large share of wind power can be controlled by appropriate grid connection requirements, extension and enforcement of transmission networks as well as integration of wind power production and production forecasts into system and market operation. The state-of-the-art report presents the assessments of the impact of wind power on the reliability and costs of the power system conducted in different countries.

      And some people are still talking about electricity for free...

      Today, the price of oil is almost passing the $100 a barrel - it reached $97,86 yesterday.
      And our energy needs will grow by 50% in the coming 23 years.

      Impressive... and maybe worrying...

IEA Photovoltaic Power Systems Programme - 0 views

  • This report presents the results of the eleventh international survey. It provides an overview of PV power systems applications and markets in the reporting countries at the end of 2006 and analyzes trends in the implementation of PV power systems between 1992 and 2006.
