Transport is a significant emitter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and air pollutants in most cities in Ghana. Road transport alone contributes 45.4% to total fuel combustion emissions and accounts for 13% of the overall national GHG emissions in 2016, showing a rising trend of 42% in the last ten years. Of the total road transport GHG emissions of 6,051.4 […]

We are observing a significant increase in the deployment of large scale solar and wind technologies in the global south, and it is therefore a strategically and academically important focus of inquiry to understand context-specific spaces for locally-embedded actors to initiate energy transitions. This paper examines the linkages between the energy transition and economic development, and has attempted to do […]

The renewable-dominated power system has a high proportion of renewable generation, which promotes the achievement of the carbon peak and carbon neutrality objectives in the power industry. However, renewable generation is dependent on volatile and unpredictable natural resources. Moreover, the renewable resources and load demands are inversely distributed in some countries such as China. Besides, renewable generation is not in […]

The increasing investment in renewable energy (RE) in Africa has been accompanied by the establishment of a number of local RE component-manufacturing facilities across various African countries. The local manufacture of RE components presents an interesting opportunity for achieving sustainable industrialization in Africa. However, limited research has been devoted to analysing the factors enabling and impeding the localization of RE […]

This review article analyses the interconnectedness of different fields of social practice. Our aim is to understand if and how the literature using social practice theory addresses these interrelations and how this is linked to questions of sustainability transformations. Based on our review, we suggest a framework that conceives everyday-life practices of working, dwelling, mobility, eating, and recreation as closely […]

Buildings are responsible for 38% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and, therefore, pathways to reduce their impact are crucial to achieve climate targets. Building stock energy models (BSEMs) have long been used as a tool to assess the current and future energy demand and environmental impact of building stocks. BSEMs have become more and more complex and are often […]

The application of hierarchical control to complicated systems can considerably simplify the complexity of system control. The multi-energy system can be divided into superior control (such as load forecasting), intermediate control (dispatch control of each subsystem), and subordinate control (equipment operation control under each subsystem), and a realisation path for the theory of overall control strategy based on hierarchical control […]

Ghana is one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, with the transport sector playing a key strategic role in its growth and development. Despite the steady economic growth over the last two decades, Ghanaian cities, in particular, seem not to have benefited from the full dividends that accrue to the urbanization process. This may be due to challenges associated with the current […]
