The webinar will showcase the use of blockchain technologies in development and cooperation projects with a focus on sustainable energy (SDG#7). Speakers will present how alternative finance can leverage public-private partnerships on renewable energy projects in Moldova, how a community is empowered through peer-to-peer energy trading in Thailand, and how blockchain-based applications can bring societal benefits and support the achievement of SDG#7.
Arab countries are putting in place numerous energy efficiency measures in all sectors to save energy, reduce emissions and fulfill their climate goals. The case of Tunisia strikes to be progressive due to its structure and projects that support energy efficiency in the country.
The IEA estimates that by 2050 energy demand from space cooling will triple. Entering into force in 2019, the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol seeks to reduce the global warming impacts of air conditioners and refrigerators through reducing the use of refrigerants with strong global warming effects. Such a shift in refrigerant offers a great opportunity for energy efficiency improvements during appliance re-engineering.
La actual situación energética en los países de la América del Sur necesita un cambio radical: aumentar el uso de fuentes de energía renovables y tener un uso más eficiente de la energía, también alineándose con los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible 7, 8 y 13. Una de las soluciones más interesante (y necesaria) es el desarrollo de sistemas urbanos eficientes para calefacción y refrigeración, a través de proyectos de energía distrital.
Among the various transport modes, shipping is one of the most efficient cargo transport. Yet, the significant growth of seaborne trade increased the energy consumption of shipping, despite of the improvement in the energy efficiency of shipping engines. According to the International Maritime Association, global fuel shipping consumption increased from 291 to 298 million tonnes (+2.4%) from 2013 to 2015. Thus, the global shipping emissions amplified quantitatively.
