This publication provides an overview of key energy storage technologies developed to date, as well as their associated benefits, problems and possible future impacts.
Renewable Energy / Clean Energy Promotion
This technology roadmap examines the consequences and opportunities of the power sector transformation. A range of measures support the integration of higher shares of variable renewable energy in the power, sector, including interconnectors, demand response, smart grid technologies and new pricing mechanisms. Energy storage is also explored as one of many options to increase system flexibility.
This presentation presents an overview of renewable energy sources, as well as electricity generation, electricity measurement, technology overview, and power system operations with a high share of renewables.
This presentation focuses on regulatory mechanisms and business models which drive the development of renewables and energy efficiency. It defines different types of mechanisms (i.e., green certificates, white certificates, reverse auctions and competitive procurement), interactions between green and white certificates, examples of reverse auctions in Brazil, examples of competitive procurement in developing countries, and assessment of effectiveness.
This presentation covers production-based renewable incentives, the design of Feed-in-Tariffs (FiT), how to set the right level of FiT support, and related policy implications.
This presentation covers trends in renewable energy and renewable energy policy, as well as lessons learned. It also addresses the scale of the challenge to transform the energy system to meet the climate goals.
This presentation provides an overview of global renewable energy trends, policy instruments for renewable energy (including regulations and standards, quantity instruments, price instruments, procurement policies, and auctions), as well as renewable energy policy design and lessons learned.
