The workshop material provides guidance on the development of country-specific emission factors for stationary and mobile combustion sources. These include emission factors for CO2 emissions from coal, natural gas and liquefied natural gas and CO2 emissions from fuel combustion in transportation sectors by transport type (on-road, civil aviation, rail and water borne transport). The material is useful for energy sector inventory compilers from line ministries, representatives from academia and research institutions involved, or responsible for, identification and development of emission factors for stationary and mobile combustion source categories in their respective countries.
2: Identifying Mitigation Options in the Energy Sector
This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum reviews how changes to the centralized electricity grid (e.g., deployment of disruptive technologies, development of new electricity generators, and overall changes to market dynamics) are being rolled out in six countries to identify how these factors are disrupting the current market. While countries are taking reactive measures to integrate new technologies in the system, the presentation shows how these measures are not occurring rapidly enough to support technology innovation, highlighting important considerations for planning transitions towards a sustainable grid system.
This presentation provides an introduction to smart grid, technology systems of smart grid, and an example of a micro grid in Korea.
This presentation given at the 2015 Asia Clean Energy Forum explains why an integrated system for renewable energy sources like wind and solar can offer significant cost-reductions compared to a purely distributed approach—increasing supply and demand diversity factors, which will reduce the need for costly storage, and allowing more accurate forecasting for better planning and operational decisions.
This webinar covers the basics of distributed generation, with an emphasis on renewable generation technologies and their benefits. The webinar answers questions about applications of different technologies, financing and management of distributed generation systems, as well as economic and social benefits.
This publication provides an overview of key energy storage technologies developed to date, as well as their associated benefits, problems and possible future impacts.
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.
