This report describes an in-depth study conducted by the Department of Sustainable Development of the Executive Secretariat for Integral Development of the Organization of American States, on the energy sector in Belize.
The study provides a baseline analysis of Belize’s energy sector. It outlines a preliminary draft of Belize’s energy policy, including priority areas, broad goals and specific objectives for the development of the energy sector linked to security of supplies, environmental protection and competitiveness.
This paper reviews Germany’s Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), focusing on its costs and the associated implications for job creation and climate protection. The authors argue that German renewable energy policy, and in particular the adopted feed-in tariff scheme, has failed to harness the market incentives needed to ensure a viable and cost-effective introduction of renewable energies into the country’s energy portfolio.
This strategy document explains how the UK Government will radically increase its use of renewable electricity, heat and transport to meet its legally-binding target to ensure 15% of its energy comes from renewable sources by 2020. The document describes how the United Kingdom will tackle climate change, reducing emissions of CO2 by over 750 million tonnes between 2009 and 2030. It will also promote the security of the UK’s energy supply, reducing overall fossil fuel demand by around 10% and gas imports by 20–30% against what they would have been in 2020. And it outlines opportunities for the UK economy with the potential to create up to half a million more jobs in the UK renewable energy sector resulting from around £100 billion of new investment. In parallel with energy saving, nuclear and carbon capture and storage, this is a key element of the nation’s overall transition plan for setting the UK on the path to achieve a low-carbon, sustainable future that helps address dangerous climate change.
