The workshop material provides guidance on the development of country-specific emission factors for stationary and mobile combustion sources. These include emission factors for CO2 emissions from coal, natural gas and liquefied natural gas and CO2 emissions from fuel combustion in transportation sectors by transport type (on-road, civil aviation, rail and water borne transport). The material is useful for energy sector inventory compilers from line ministries, representatives from academia and research institutions involved, or responsible for, identification and development of emission factors for stationary and mobile combustion source categories in their respective countries.
This report provides an overview of the state of “Bio-CCS” technologies, which combine sustainable biomass conversion with CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS), as well as its potential to remove CO2 from the atmosphere globally and in Europe, and recommendations for how it can be deployed across Europe at an accelerated rate.
This short brochure outlines IEA’s key messages on carbon capture and storage (CCS), an essential group of technologies to combat climate change. As part of a portfolio of technologies, CCS can help mitigate CO2 emissions from industrial sectors such as steel, cement, chemicals and refining, as well as from electricity production from fossil fuels.
This paper fills a gap in the energy discussion by focusing on low-carbon options: co-generation and renewables, and also on heat. It stresses the low-carbon benefits of both co-generation and renewables as stand-alone technologies and supports the implementation of appropriate policy incentives for both of these low-carbon solutions.
This publication discusses non-traditional measures for governments to promote energy sector decarbonisation, namely voluntary programmes that drive action by businesses, and government shareholder influence over state-owned enterprises. Given the depth of decarbonisation required for a low-carbon future and the central role that businesses will need to play, strengthening these types of measures that complement carbon pricing mechanisms and government regulations to target business engagement can increase emissions mitigation.
This e-Learning course covers the essential aspects of renewable energy and energy efficiency policies and how they can contribute to green growth strategies. It provides an overview of policy instruments used to promote the deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in developing countries. Note: The training is also offered as a facilitated course twice annually with e-Certificates issued upon successful completion. The facilitated version features guidance of an expert facilitator to lead participants through lessons and moderate the ‘peer discussion forum’ where participants interact to share knowledge.
