UNEP report published: Green Technology Choices
The International Resource Panel of the UNEP published its report “Green Technology Choices: The Environmental and Resource Implications of Low-Carbon Technologies“.
This report, the first international assessment of this type, investigates the life-cycle environmental and natural resource implications of large-scale deployment of energy efficiency technologies. The report examines more than 30 demand-side energy efficiency technologies across different technological clusters, including lighting, buildings, information and communication technology, efficient metals processing, high-efficiency co-generation, and transportation. In addition, the combined effects of low-carbon energy supply and deployment of efficient demand-side technologies under the 2 degree and 6 degree Celsius scenarios are assessed.
The report includes essential findings of Dr. Severin Beucker’s article about decentralized energy management in the Journal of Industrial Ecology.
