Auctions for renewable energy support allocation are on a triumphant global advance. We compare performance of renewable energy auctions in terms of effectiveness (realisation rate and period) and efficiency (price outcomes) from two world regions: South Africa and European countries (Germany, France, the Netherlands). We develop an assessment framework for compliance incentivisation in auction design, covering qualification criteria, penalties, and […]

Buildings play a key role in the transition to a low-carbon-energy system and in achieving Paris Agreement climate targets. Analyzing potential scenarios for building decarbonization in different socioeconomic contexts is a crucial step to develop national and transnational roadmaps to achieve global emission reduction targets. This study integrates building stock energy models for 32 countries across four continents to create […]

This study aims to identify the combined role of environmental pollutants and atmospheric variables at short term on the rate of incidence (TIC) and on the hospital admission rate (TIHC) due to COVID-19 disease in Spain. This study used information from 41 of the 52 provinces of Spain (from Feb. 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021). Using TIC and TIHC […]

Despite abundant rainfall occurring in two seasons per year in most of Uganda, and over 70% of houses with hard roof surface across the country, the adoption of rooftop rainwater harvesting (RRWH) technology is very low. Very few houses have provisions for channelling and storing rainwater for future use. This is owing to limited awareness, information gaps about the tech-nology, […]

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 […]

Given the crosscutting character of climate change, improving our understanding of its integration into sectorial policy domains is relevant. We contribute empirically with a case study in Mexico where we analyze climate policy integration in terms of policy outputs and processes. Firstly, we adapted an approach to measure events of regulatory output change and applied it to our original dataset […]
