The Economics of Renewable Energy

The history of industrial civilization is a history of energy transitions. In less developed, agrarian economies, people’s basic need for food calories is provided through simple forms of agriculture, which is essentially a method of capturing solar energy for human use. Solar energy stored in firewood or other biomass energy meets other basic needs for

Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investment 2017

In 2016, the advance of renewable energy slowed in one respect and speeded up in another. Investment in renewables excluding large hydro fell by 23% to $241.6 billion, but the amount of new capacity installed increased from 127.5GW in 2015 to a record 138.5GW in 2016. Together, the new renewable sources of wind, solar, biomass


Rural Electrification Concessions in Africa: What Does Experience Tell Us?

To extend the educational, economic, and health-related benefits of electricity to more people, African governments are working to increase the scale and pace of rural electrification, often in partnership with international donors guided by the international Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative.

Confronting the Food-Energy-Environment Trilemma

Economic, agronomic, and biophysical drivers affect global land use, so all three influences need to be considered in evaluating economically optimal allocations of the world’s land resources. A dynamic, forward looking optimization framework applied over the course of the coming century shows that although some deforestation is optimal in the near term, in the absence


Oil Price Volatility, Economic Growth and the Hedging Role of Renewable Energy

This paper investigates the adverse effects of oil price volatility on economic activity and the extent to which countries can hedge against such effects by using renewable energy. By considering the Realized Volatility of oil prices, rather than following the standard approach of considering oil price shocks in levels, the effects of factor price uncertainty
