A Critical Decade for Climate Policy: Tools and Initiatives to Track Our Progress
The last five years have seen significant advancements in policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, monitoring and evaluating policy progress over the next decade is vital to ensure that the expected greenhouse gas emissions reductions are fully realized. Analyzing the effectiveness of policies being implemented and developed, as well as related risks and uncertainties, can also help build political momentum and spread learning.
Study by LBL shows much higher potential for wind energy in India than previously estimated
A new assessment of wind energy in India by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has found that the potential for on-shore wind energy deployment is far higher than the official estimates. The new research shows that the potential is about 20 times--and, in places, up to 30 times--greater than the current government estimate of 102 gigawatts. This landmark finding may have significant impact on India’s renewable energy strategy as it attempts to cope with a massive and chronic shortage of electricity.
The Life and Death of Urban Highways: New report from ITDP and EMBARQ questions role of highways in cities
As cities in developed countries continue tearing out urban highways, a new report from ITDP and EMBARQ seeks to re-appraise the specific conditions under which it makes sense to build a new urban highway and when it makes sense to tear one down.
Shift to energy efficiency in India could end blackouts, save money, and boost GDP
ClimateWorks’ Network partners have come up with a solution that could eliminate India’s crippling blackouts, boost its GDP by roughly half a trillion dollars, slash its greenhouse gas emissions, and save money for consumers. “The Hundred Billion Dollar Bonus: Global Energy Efficiency Lessons From India” explains how shifting to currently available energy efficient appliances and other technologies could help India achieve these gains in just a few years.
