Energy efficient technologies can be found in all parts of the energy conversion chain: from exploration and production of primary energy resources, to power generation and oil refineries to electricity grids, to the final use in industry, buildings and transportation. But it is not only the technical potential which is crucial for successful introduction of […]
Renewable Energy Sources (RES) offer many benefits, such as CO2 emissions mitigation, fossil fuels import requirement reduction and new jobs creation, just to name a few. The study identifies these challenges and offers solutions based on the experience of industry operators around the world.
Energy systems must be smarter, not just stronger, to withstand the risks from extreme weather events, the energy-water-food nexus and cyber-attacks. The “Road to Resilience” series shows the evolution of these risks, their impact on infrastructure and identifies measures to improve the financing conditions and resilience of global energy systems to cope with these new […]
Electric vehicles will need to increase their combined market share from the current 1% to 16% by 2020 to achieve the aggressive fuel economy standards set by regulators. That’s the conclusion of new WEC report, which states that electric vehicles should be considered central to any policy and technology portfolio designed to lower transport […]
Identifying where to play and how to win in the emerging energy landscape.
The energy sector is facing increasing pressures from climate change. All segments of the industry will be affected by the changing global climate and the policy responses to it. So says a briefing published jointly by the World Energy Council (WEC), the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), the Cambridge Judge Business School, […]
