Accelerating the Energy Transition through Innovation
Technological breakthroughs are needed to reduce carbon emissions in the energy sector. Even with economically viable and scalable renewable-based solutions available for around two-thirds of the world’s energy supply, population growth and rising energy demand could outpace energy decarbonisation without urgent investments in research and development (R&D).

Biofuel potential in Southeast Asia: Raising food yields, reducing food waste and utilising residues
Southeast Asia has considerable resources to produce liquid biofuels sustainably, using biomass feedstocks that would not cause carbon-dioxide emissions or interfere with food supply. Fulfilling the region’s biofuel potential would depend on increased residue collection from food crops and forest products, intensified cultivation of farmland, and reducing waste and losses in the food chain.

Adapting Market Design to High Shares of Variable Renewable Energy
Liberalised power markets require timely adaptation to support higher shares of solar and wind energy and distributed power generation. A study from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) examines the adaptation process for such markets as these variable renewable energy sources increase. It sets out to inform policy makers, regulators and system operators on the options available
