Retrofitting an existing building can often be more cost-effective than building a new facility.Publications
Buildings hold a sizeable share of total energy consumption and therefore make a significant contribution to CO2 emissions. This is made worse by the characteristically inefficient utilisation of energy.Publications
Liberalization of the electricity markets will facilitate competition in generation; it will lead to reflection of all the cost components in the electricity tariffs; it will drive performance improvements and will pave the way for regional power markets interconnection and trading which will further enhance Renewable penetratPublications
Electricity interconnection between markets allows the efficient dispatch of resources and reserves across wider geographical areas and takes advantage of differences in instantaneous demand, renewables output, and plant availability.Publications
The attainment of the Paris Agreement climate goals depends on the extent of decarbonisation of the energy system, which is directly and indirectly responsible for 2/3 of all carbon dioxide emissions. Therefore the replacement of fossil fuel electricity generation with Renewables is imperative.Publications
