Educational and Technological Approaches to Renewable Energy

Edited By Walter Leal Filho and Julia Gottwald

This book documents and disseminates a number of educational and technological approaches to renewable energy, with a special emphasis on European and Latin American experiences, but also presenting experiences from other parts of the world. It was prepared as part of the project JELARE (Joint European-Latin American Universities Renewable Energy Project), undertaken as part of the ALFA III Programme of the European Commission involving countries in Latin America (e.g. Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala) as well as in Europe (Germany and Latvia). Thanks to its approach and structure, this book will prove useful to all those dedicated to the development of the renewable energy sector, especially those concerned with the problems posed by lack of expertise and lack of training in this field.

Defining a Mitigation Strategy in a Developing Country Context: The Case od Chile

Extract

Defining a Mitigation Strategy in a Developing Country Context: The Case of Chile R. O’Ryan, M. Díaz, J. Clerc1 Abstract In this paper, we provide a forecast of the evolution of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Chile and evaluate alternative policies and specific instruments to deal with future contingencies the country may face in this area. We focus exclu- sively on emissions resulting from fossil fuel combustion in stationary and mobile sources, and do not consider emissions from industrial processes or from changes in land use and forestry. We identify and assess the main measures for reducing green- house gases in the transportation, commercial, public and residential, industrial, mining, and electricity-generating sectors. We also define economic and regulatory instruments which could help to promote and implement proposed measures. I. Introduction In this paper, we provide a forecast of the evolution of GHG emissions in Chile and evaluate alternative policies and specific instruments for dealing with future contingencies the country might face in this area. We focus exclusively on emis- sions resulting from fossil fuel combustion in stationary and mobile sources, and do not consider emissions from industrial processes or from changes in land use and forestry. We identify and assess the main measures for reducing greenhouse gases in the transportation, commercial, public and residential, industrial, mining, and electricity-generating sectors. We also define economic and regulatory instru- ments which could help to promote and implement proposed measures. For each abatement option, implementation costs and reduction potentials are estimated utilising expert...
