Renewable Energy Resource Assessment

  title={Renewable Energy Resource Assessment},
  author={Sven Teske and Kriti Nagrath and Tom Morris and Kate Dooley},
  journal={Achieving the Paris Climate Agreement Goals},
Literature overview of published global and regional renewable energy potential estimates. This section provides definitions for different types of RE potentials and introduces a new category, the economic renewable energy potential in space constrained environments. The potential for utility scale solar and onshore wind in square kilometre and maximum possible installed capacity (in GW) are provided for 75 different regions. The results set the upper limits for the deployment of solar- and… 

The Hydro, Wind and Solar Hybrid Power Generation and Balancing Energy Supply-Demand for Seyemtribua Rural Village in Northern Ethiopia

Background:Ethiopia has a wide range of renewable energy resources for the electrification of rural areas which are often disconnected from the national grid. However, these have not yet been

Powering the next industrial revolution: transitioning from nonrenewable energy to solar fuels via CO2 reduction

Solar energy has been used for decades for the direct production of electricity in various industries and devices; however, harnessing and storing this energy in the form of chemical bonds has

Integrated Solar Energy Application System Development to Catalyze Public Participation Towards Bali Clean Energy Through Crowd-Based Business Models

Through the Minister of ESDM K/20/MEM/2015 and Bali Governor Regulation No. 45/2019, Bali is designated as a clean energy area and has the advanced implementation of the energy transition towards


This paper, using data for the time period 1971-2014, analyzes the relationship between GDP per capita, foreign direct investment, energy use per capita, and environmental degradation measured by the

Automatic dual-axis solar tracker system design

Sunlight is one of the energy that can be used to generate electricity. Converting solar energy into electrical energy required a device called Photo-Voltaic (PV). However, output of PV hardly

Sustainable Valorization of Biomass: From Assisted Phytoremediation to Green Energy Production



Global Energy Assessment: Toward a Sustainable Future

The Global Energy Assessment (GEA) brings together over 300 international researchers to provide an independent, scientifically based, integrated and policy-relevant analysis of current and emerging

Rightsizing carbon dioxide removal

Here, this work focuses on rightsizing the expectations from carbon dioxide removal (CDR), a technology that is mostly in their infancy, yet are increasingly asserted as key to climate policy.

Biomass-based negative emissions difficult to reconcile with planetary boundaries

Under the Paris Agreement, 195 nations have committed to holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and to strive to limit the increase to

The limits to global‐warming mitigation by terrestrial carbon removal

Massive near‐term greenhouse gas emissions reduction is a precondition for staying “well below 2°C” global warming as envisaged by the Paris Agreement. Furthermore, extensive terrestrial carbon

Not carbon neutral: Assessing the net emissions impact of residues burned for bioenergy

Climate mitigation requires emissions to peak then decline within two decades, but many mitigation models include 100 EJ or more of bioenergy, ignoring emissions from biomass oxidation. Treatment of

Does replacing coal with wood lower CO2 emissions? Dynamic lifecycle analysis of wood bioenergy

Bioenergy is booming as nations seek to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. The European Union declared biofuels to be carbon-neutral, triggering a surge in wood use. But do biofuels actually reduce

Quantifying the biophysical climate change mitigation potential of Canada's forest sector

The potential of forests and the forest sector to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is widely recog- nized, but challenging to quantify at a national scale. Forests and their carbon (C)

Opinion: Reconsidering bioenergy given the urgency of climate protection

A major reprioritization of climate-related research, policy, and investment is urgently required, a move away from bioenergy and toward terrestrial carbon management (TCM).
