Our publications, reports and research library hosts over 500 specialist reports and research papers on all topics associated with CCS.
The report is an update of Greenpeace’s How Clean is Your Cloud? from 2012. This update examines 19 global information technology companies that are leading the sector’s move to the cloud. These companies, while less well-known than branded giants like Google or Amazon, operate the data centers behind much of the Internet.
This is the fourth edition of the 'Global Wind Energy Outlook'. The report looks at scenarios projecting to 2020, 2030, and 2050. The scenarios include development paths for the industry: the International Energy Agency’s ‘New Policies’ scenario, the Global Wind Energy Outlook Moderate scenario, and the Global Wind Energy Outlook Advanced scenario; and measures them against two different demand scenarios to define a range of possible futures for the sector, both regionally and globally.
The China Wind Energy Outlook 2012 is the fourth edition in the series, following the 2007, 2008 and 2010 editions jointly published by the Chinese Renewable Energy Industry Association, Greenpeace, Global Wind Energy Council and the Chinese Wind Energy Association. This edition takes stock of the Chinese wind energy market, providing a comprehensive outlook on the status of the industry with prospects for the future.
The Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace International present this 3rd edition of the Global Wind Energy Outlook for 2010, the successor to the Wind Force 10 and Wind Force 12 series which began in 1999. This report seeks to answer questions including: what role will wind power play in the coming two decades and beyond, how much of the global electricity demand will it cover, and how much CO2 will be saved by wind power in 2020 and in 2030? The report presents three scenarios for the development of the sector, and enacts them against two scenarios for electricity demand development to come up with a range of possible futures for the sector.
The authors of this paper discuss mitigation and financing potentials of China’s electricity sector. It is a very large emitting sector, and there are many technologies available for improving emissions performance. They believe there are significant potential benefits both for sustainable development in developing countries and for the global atmosphere. However, they emphasise that theirs is a proposal for a voluntary mechanism, therefore countries must be convinced that it is in their best interests in order for it to proceed.
This report aims to compile a detailed quantitative knowledge base, coupled with clearly defined and realistic assumptions from which extrapolations could be made on the likely development of the solar electricity market up to 2030 and beyond.
This EPIA/Greenpeace report looks forward to what solar power could achieve - given the right market conditions and an anticipated fall in costs - over the first three decades of the twenty-first century. As well as projections for installed capacity and energy output, it makes assessments of the level of investment required, the number of jobs which would be created, and the crucial effect which an increased input from solar electricity will have on greenhouse gas emissions.
The Global Wind Energy Outlook 2008, published by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Greenpeace International, examines the global potential of wind power up to 2050. The report concludes that wind energy could play a key part in achieving a decline in emissions by 2020 as per the IPCC specifications. This report seeks to answer questions about the global wind industry including how important a role it will play, and what share of the global electricity ‘pie’ can and will wind occupy in the future.
