Vom 11. bis 13. September 2017 fand in Mexiko City die Mexico International Renewable Energy Conference (MEXIREC) statt. Auf der MEXIREC treffen Minister, Entscheidungsträger, Experten, Spezialisten und Vordenker auf Vertreter aus der Privatwirtschaft und der Zivilgesellschaft, um über Visionen, Erfahrungen und Lösungen zu sprechen, die den weltweiten Anschub von erneuerbaren Energien beschleunigen sollen. Die Konferenz wird alle zwei Jahre von unterschiedlichen Regierungen gemeinsam mit dem Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21) organisiert. Auf dieser Seite sind Infoblätter zusammengestellt, die einige Themen der Konferenz aufgreifen.

  • Sustainable Housing in Mexico

    The residential, public and commercial buildings are responsible for approximately 15% of Mexico’s total energy consumption. In 2012, the National Housing Commission CONAVI developed the world’s first National Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) in the sector to address this problem. A NAMA Support Project combines technical assistance to CONAVI (technical cooperation component) as well as financial incentives and project-related technical support.

  • Mobilising Finance for Mitigation and Climate Change Adaptation

    Developing countries in particular face enormous challenges in mobilising financial resources and using funding for the necessary climate change adaptation and mitigation measures. The mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, the preservation of natural carbon reservoirs and adaptation to the impacts of climate change all require financial resources. The Global Climate Partnership Fund (GCPF), facilitated by the International Climate Initiative (IKI), is an instrument for mobilising public and private capital for investment in climate change mitigation in developing and emerging countries.

  • Supporting innovative Technologies: Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)

    Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) is an innovative technology that countries with appropriate solar conditions can use to decarbonise their economic development. Through the International Climate Initiative (IKI), the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) funds eight projects supporting CSP technologies in partner countries around the world and has committed more than 81 million euros for technical and financial support. The factsheet presents selected highlights from these projects.

  • Saving Energy by Replacing Inefficient Energy Systems – New Pathways towards Energy Efficiency in Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

    Across the world, large numbers of small and mediumsized supermarkets, restaurants and other commercial businesses rely on refrigeration technology and other electrical appliances. These are frequently inefficient, with the result that many businesses face high energy bills. Help is at hand, however, with micro-credits for the purchase of efficient electrical appliances increasingly becoming available worldwide.

  • Energetic Use of Palm Oil Residues in Indonesia and Thailand

    The energetic use of biomass is one of the key measures used in efforts to mitigate climate change. Vast supplies of agricultural residues make Southeast Asia one of the most important regions in the world when it comes to tapping unharnessed bioenergy potentials. Since Indonesia and Thailand are among the world’s biggest palm oil producers, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) supports both countries in their mitigation efforts

  • From Fossil Fuels to Renewable Energies – Transforming the Energy Sector on Islands

    Small Island Development States (SIDS) share characteristics that make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Many SIDS are still heavily dependent on imported fossil fuels for the majority of their energy needs. A number of IKI-funded projects support the countries' efforts for a transition of the energy sector towards a low-emission and more sustainable future.

  • The Mexican-German Climate Alliance: Contributing to Coherent Energy and Climate Policies

    Germany and Mexico are among the world’s top ten emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG). Similarly to Germany, Mexico has set itself ambitious mitigation and adaptation goals and has assumed a pioneering role among developing countries in terms of climate policy. The International Climate Initiative is supporting Mexico’s climate change and sustainable energy efforts through the “Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance”.

  • Dissemination of Solar Water Heating in Brazil and Mexico

    The use of fossil fuels for cooking and water heating represents a major source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Latin America. One of the most technically viable and economically attractive ways of reducing fossil fuel consumption in home systems is solar water heating (SWH). The International Climate Initiative (IKI) supports projects aiming to foster the use of SWH systems on rooftops as a sustainable alternative to conventional water heating technologies.

  • Renewable Energies, Emission Reduction and Sustainable Economic Growth in Chile

    In recent years, the expansion of renewable electricity generation capacities in Chile has experienced rapid growth. More than 40% of the Chilean electricity is currently produced by renewable energies, of which one third comes from wind and solar energy. Latest potential analyses show that Chile could cover its electricity demand more than a hundred times with renewable energy sources.

  • Promotion of a Carbon-Neutral Water Sector

    The water sector is highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Droughts, intense rainfall and mudslides affect drinking water and wastewater services, decreasing the availability and quality of water and damaging the utilities’ infrastructure. At the same time, water and wastewater utilities in emerging countries are among the major consumers of energy, emitting significant amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, primarily nitrous oxide and methane, which have much more significant multiplier effects on global warming. The need to find solutions to combat climate change is therefore a central challenge for the water sector.
