An Economically Viable 100% Renewable Energy System for All Energy Sectors of Germany in 2030
To be able to fulfil the Paris Climate Agreement and keep global warming with reasonable confidence at a maximum of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels, Germany must set an end to all greenhouse gas

PV battery systems will form a central pillar of the power system in China due to the system’s low cost, sustainability, scalability, and distributed resource availability across the entire country, according to Lu et al. (3).
A Review of Small–Medium Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technologies and Their Role within the 100% Renewable Energy Systems Scenario
The energy transition towards a scenario with 100% renewable energy sources (RES) for the energy system is starting to unfold its effects and is increasingly accepted. In such a scenario, a
Renewable Energy Transition for the Himalayan Countries Nepal and Bhutan: Pathways Towards Reliable, Affordable and Sustainable Energy for All
An energy transition towards a sustainable and secure energy system for all by 2050 is well possible in Nepal and Bhutan only through 100% renewable sources and it is both technically and economically feasible despite having substantial limitations in infrastructure and economic development currently.


On the Techno-economic Benefits of a Global Energy Interconnection
1. Motivations underlying the research The global energy supply in the coming decades is framed by several challenges. Climate change mitigation requires defossilisation of energy supply by mid-21st
A low energy demand scenario for meeting the 1.5 °C target and sustainable development goals without negative emission technologies
Scenarios that limit global warming to 1.5 °C describe major transformations in energy supply and ever-rising energy demand. Here, we provide a contrasting perspective by developing a narrative of
The influence of the energy transition on the significance of key energy metrics
Global Transportation Demand Development with Impacts on the Energy Demand and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Climate-Constrained World
The pivotal target of the Paris Agreement is to keep temperature rise well below 2 °C above the pre-industrial level and pursue efforts to limit temperature rise to 1.5 °C. To meet this target, all

Energy security and affordability have represented for a long time central issues for all countries in the world. Nevertheless, the continuing increase of energy use, the related CO2 emissions and
Future challenges for photovoltaic manufacturing at the terawatt level
To meet the target set by the Paris agreement in 2015 to keep the Earth average temperature rise to less than 2 °C (or even 1.5 °C), the best choice is to transition the energy economy to 100%
