Ghana is currently at the crossroads of planning and implementing sustainable mass transit solutions to deal with growing congestion, poor air quality, and global warming. As a fast-growing economy in sub-Saharan Africa, Ghana’s transport sector contributes to 47.7% of energy-related emissions. The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions are projected to reach 74 MtCO2e by 2050 in the Business-As-Usual (BAU) scenario compared […]

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 […]

While services are an essential element in the global production, trade and consumption of manufactured goods, limited research has been conducted on the role of services in studies of global value chains (GVCs). Recently, however, an emerging literature on the ‘servicification’ of manufacturing in GVCs has evolved, most of which involves aggregate-level analyses of countries and sectors based on trade […]

The power system with high penetration of wind power faces a great challenge for system dispatch due to the high volatility and intermittency of the wind power. This work proposes a day-ahead optimal dispatch model which is formulated for a power system with thermal power, hydropower, and controllable load as dispatchable resources. According to the anti-peak regulation, the system dynamic […]
