The Energi21 board presents in this document the third national strategy for research, development, demonstration and commercialisation of new climate-friendly energy technology. The strategy is targeted towards value creation and efficient utilisation of resources in the energy sector through investment in R&D activities and new technology to benefit society as a whole. Trade and industry has played a leading role in the strategy processes, and close cooperation with universities and research institutes has been emphasised
As the global population moves toward 10 billion—a level experts anticipate we’ll hit by 2050—designers worldwide are using their skills and talents to imagine, design, and create a better world where everyone can live well and live within the limits of our planet.
The World Bank is applying to transport initiatives a new and distinctive method of greenhouse gas (GHG) analysis as part of its comprehensive GHG accounting policy
Actions to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to stabilize warming at 2°C, as agreed by the international community in 2009, will fall short if they do not include the transport sector
The world faces two urgent challenges: eradicating poverty through economic development, and tackling climate change. Sustainable transport is crucial to both. In August 2014, the UN Secretary General established a High-Level Advisory Group on Sustainable Transport to make policy recommendations that “promote accelerated implementation of sustainable transport.”
Megacities in developing countries suffer from serious traffic congestion, high levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and heavy air pollution. These urban areas face a stark dilemma: economic expansion attracts more people and vehicles; but the resulting traffic and pollution hinder further growth while reducing the quality of life for their citizens
Initiatives which catalyse climate action are now recognised increasingly as playing an important role in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and bridging the global emissions gap. The number and range of these initiatives is growing rapidly. There are several open questions about these initiatives at a global scale, including what contribution they can make to closing the emissions gap, but also what makes a successful initiative and how can this be replicated and scaled up. This paper focuses on the first of these questions
