New 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.
New paper from ICCT examines certification procedures for commercial hybrids and other vehicles
Commercial vehicles are a growing contributor to air pollution, fuel consumption, and global-warming emissions in the on-road transportation sector worldwide. A new paper from ICCT outlines holistic approaches to testing and certifying power-train systems and complete heavy duty vehicles. As with passenger vehicles, a variety of fuel, engine, and powertrain technology options exist for trucks and buses that can reduce pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions.
China's new five-year plan aims to meet ambitious climate and energy targets
With the adoption of China’s 12th Five-Year Plan, China’s leaders have declared that reducing greenhouse gas emissions is an integral part of their economic strategy. “The Race Is On: China Kick-Starts Its Clean Economy,” the latest ClimateWorks Network Knowledge Series, outlines the steps China is taking to meet its climate and energy targets, and suggests ways to address the challenges.
Analysis of the American Power Act
This analysis illustrates national impacts of the American Power Act of 2010 as introduced in draft form on May 12, 2010 by U.S. Senators Kerry and Lieberman. This is the second in a series of forthcoming analyses ClimateWorks is conducting to assess current climate and energy bill proposals in the United States Congress. The aim of this analysis is to provide a detailed, consistent fact base by quantifying the economic impact of policy options and providing a common analytic approach for assessing those options. ClimateWorks takes no position on legislation.
