eC2: Estimating Current and Diachronic Charcoal Production and Consumption Trends

Deadline: 21-May-2017 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) index

The objective of this work is to undertake the logistical and administrative aspects of a study to examine the production and consumption of charcoal in Haiti. The study will attempt to answer the following questions: (1) How much charcoal is consumed annually in the capital city of Port-au-Prince; (2) Which geographical regions produce the charcoal consumed in the capital; (3) How do these production areas variably supply charcoal consumption depending on seasonal demand fluctuations; and (4) In what ways has charcoal consumption in Port-au-Prince changed over time? The results of this study will produce important and up-to-date data that may inform policy decisions related to tree-planting, land and landscape management, and agricultural projects targeted toward Haiti’s majority, who live in rural areas and rely on agricultural production activities for their livelihoods.

Global Tracking Framework 2017 – Progress Toward Sustainable Energy

STORY HIGHLIGHTS pub-page-cover
  • Pace of progress on sustainable energy goals on energy access, renewable energy and energy efficiency fell short of what is needed to meet global objectives by 2030.
  • But in just about every area of sustainable energy, some countries are outperforming the world, indicating that greater policy focus could result in significant payoffs.
  • Progress on energy efficiency is gaining momentum, thanks to decreasing intensity of final energy consumption in industry, agriculture, services, and transport.

eC2: Feasibility study (Regulatory and Market analysis) for a 500 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine

Deadline: 03-Apr-2017 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) gas.jpg
The Feasibility Study (the Study) shall be comprised of the Regulatory and Market Analysis. It shall be performed by extensive research of publicly available information, regarding the Albanian and regional markets, on regulatory and market developments and assessment of those markets. The results of the Regulatory Analysis will be synthesized in plausible regulatory cases for Albania within the region depending on the withdrawal of coal fired capacity, in RES and sustainability obligations; the gas market developments and; the degree of harmonization of cross-border trading. The Study will also develop plausible macroeconomic scenarios for Albania and the region but with granularity of assumptions on a country by country level. The macroeconomic scenarios will be combined with the regulatory cases to produce combination of scenarios which will then form the basis of the subsequent Market Analysis.
