Japan aspires to reduce its greenhouse emissions (GHG) by 26 % in 2030 compared to 2013 levels and by 25.4 % compared to 2005 levels. Japan is the only G20 member to have defined a quantified target[...]
Chile, with less than 18 million inhabitants, is becoming a strategic actor in the world energy transition thanks to its Northern Atacama Desert that contains great mineral wealth, mainly copper and lithium[...]
Accounting for over 29 % of Norway’s overall CO2 emissions, transport-related emissions have fallen sharply since 2012. This trend is mainly due to the fact all stakeholders made significant [...]
Compared to the progress made in the Energy Transition (Energiewende), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport have been on the rise since 2010 making the transition to green mobility (Verkehrswende) unce[...]
With an average growth of 5% since 2013, Ghana has one of the most dynamic economies on the planet. The Ghanaian rate of electrification is one of the highest in Sub-Saharan Africa and the country became an export[...]
"The 21st of April 2017 marked the first time since the start of electrification where the United Kingdom went an entire day without depending on coal for electricity generation."
This paper presents air transport's two major characteristics: a strong growth in emissions that the technological and organisational progress is currently unable to contain and secondly, the fact that international air tr[...]
Rapidly evolving over the past decade, international maritime transport contributes significantly to global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, exceeding those of the civil aviation sector.
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) prevents the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere by recovering carbon dioxide at the emitting facilities and then storing it or using it, possibly after tran[...]
The category of fugitive emissions covers a vast number of poorly controlled emissions: accidental, diffuse or unproductive. Fugitive emissions represent a significant proportion of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissio[...]
Globally, rail is a mode of transport that does not emit much in the way of greenhouse gases. This paper demonstrates how the rail sector seems to be a relatively low GHG emitter but that the reality is still quite different....
An efficient transport system is crucial for India as it witnesses rising demand for transport services and related infrastructure.
