Renewable power generation costs in 2012: an overview
Renewable power generation costs in 2012: an overview

1st January 2013

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

This report provides analysis of the costs and performance of renewable power generation technologies. The results are based on analysis of 8 000 medium-to-large scale commissioned or proposed renewable power generation projects from a range of data sources. The intent is to inform the debate on renewable power generation and to assist governments and private sector investors in their decision‑making.

The report highlights that renewables are increasingly becoming the most competitive option for new grid supply and swift grid extension. Where electricity systems are dominated by oil‑fired plant, cheaper—sometimes significantly cheaper—renewable generation choices are available. For off‑grid power supply, renewables are already the default economic solution.

Preliminary analysis of the jobs and economic impacts of renewable energy projects supported by the §1603 Treasury Grant Program
Preliminary analysis of the jobs and economic impacts of renewable energy projects supported by the §1603 Treasury Grant Program

1st April 2012

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

This report estimates the jobs and economic impacts resulting from the total investment in projects supported by the United States’ §1603 Treasury grant program. Although the primary intent of the program was to minimize the impact of the weakened tax equity market on renewable project development, by providing project developers with an alternative way to recoup the value of the tax incentives, it ensured that development of renewable energy projects, and the jobs and economic benefits associated with those projects, were not hindered by weak tax equity markets.

EU energy in figures: statistical pocketbook 2012
EU energy in figures: statistical pocketbook 2012

1st January 2012

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

Energy drives modern economies and is key to the development of our society. This publication provides an overview of the most relevant annual energy-related statistics on the European Union and on each one of its 27 Member States.

The content of this pocketbook is based on a range of sources, including European Commission services, international organisations, such as the European Environment Agency and the International Energy Agency, and where no data were available, on the European Commission’s own calculations. Indicator calculations follow the methodology established by the European Commission’s Energy DG.

The publication consists of four main parts:
  1. An overview of the energy sector at world and EU level, including the main policy indicators.
  2. A comparative analysis of the main energy indicators, for the EU and its Member States.
  3. A brief analysis of environmental data and of the impact of the energy sector on the environment.
  4. A section presenting the main energy indicators country by country.
The annexes include a detailed overview of the energy industry in the EU as well as a selection of macro-economic indicators.

Connecting Europe: the energy infrastructure for tomorrow
Connecting Europe: the energy infrastructure for tomorrow

1st January 2012

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

The EU’s energy infrastructure is ageing and, in its current state, not suited to match future demand for energy, to ensure security of supply or to support large-scale deployment of energy from renewable sources. This brochure gives an overview on the elements of the 'Energy Infrastructure Package', the new priority corridors and areas for the decade up to 2020 and beyond, across the whole energy infrastructure sector.

Prospects for the African power sector: scenarios and strategies for Africa Project
Prospects for the African power sector: scenarios and strategies for Africa Project

1st January 2012

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

This paper provides early insights for the power sector in Africa. This analysis for Africa’s power sector focuses on the period to 2030, with an outlook to 2050 to examine long-term issues that have an impact on investment decisions in the near future.

Other IRENA work projects, such as those on renewable power generation costs, are essential inputs into the analysis presented here.

Two scenarios are analysed: the Reference scenario and the Renewable scenario. The Reference scenario explores a continuation of ongoing energy sector trends while the Renewable scenario examines the impact of policies in Africa to actively promote the transition to a renewable-based electricity system.

Low-carbon Africa: leapfrogging to a green future
Low-carbon Africa: leapfrogging to a green future

1st November 2011

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

This report presents the case for a low-carbon Africa that is able to deliver clean and sustainable energy to millions of energy-poor people across the continent, and to drive a productive green economic expansion for the region to deliver a higher sustainable standard of living well into the future. Energy diversity, local resources and sustainable long-term supply from low-carbon energy will help to deliver modern energy to the people, services and industry where it is needed, and to stimulate greater economic growth and energy security in the region.

2050 pathways analysis: response to the call for evidence. Part 1
2050 pathways analysis: response to the call for evidence. Part 1

1st March 2011

Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

In July 2010, the Government published its 2050 Pathways Analysis work. The analysis explored a range of potential pathways, choices and trade-offs for achieving long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction target and ensuring the UK’s energy needs are met.

The 2050 Pathways Analysis was published as a Call for Evidence, running from 27th July to 5th October 2010. The questions on which evidence was sought are set out in Annex A. The United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) published the analysis as a Call for Evidence in order to test with a wider range of experts and stakeholders whether the assumptions and data underpinning the model were considered to be sound and based on the best available evidence.

The response to the Call for Evidence was very positive. The overwhelming opinion was that the 2050 Pathways Analysis was a valuable tool and a useful contribution to the debate about the United Kingdom’s energy future.

This report sets out how DECC revised the model, and the evidence and assumptions that underlie the changes they made (see Part 2A).
