Onyejelam Emem The role of Law in promoting renewable energy development in Nigeria

The energy crisis in Nigeria is such that has brought about development setbacks, environmental degradation, increased poverty rate,etc and these must be addressed to bring about socio-economic development.The key to improving energy access lies in the ability of the government to include renewable energy sources like solar, wind energy, geothermal energy,biomass, as part of the nation's energy mix. However, the government can only achieve this feat where private investors (domestic and foreign) are actively involved. The Renewable energy industry in Nigeria is driven by Policies and most recently, the National Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Policy, 2015. Policies in Nigeria have been criticised for lacking in implementation, consistency, stability and lacking binding effects.These factors send the wrong signals to potential investors who need to be assured of security over investments made. Thus, it is therfore pertinent to have a legislation on renewable energy that would complement already existing policies and guarantee justice in event of a breach. The law can create an enabling environment for potential investors to drive renewable energy development in Nigeria.

Endale Tsegaye Mohammed Jatropha Biofuels in Tanzania

The global energy supply is currently based mainly on fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas, and coal. These fossil fuels cause serious environmental, political and social problems. Therefore, it is imperative to look for more sustainable energy sources that may solve the abovementioned problems. For several decades, (inter)national governments have made plans to reduce the economy's dependency on fossil fuels by the substitution of alternative energy sources such as renewable energy sources. The Technological Innovation Systems approach is most suitable for the analysis of the development and diffusion of renewable energy sources, because it focuses on a particular technology and it includes factors that are specific to the technology studied. In this research work we have presented the relation between the way in which System Functions are being fulfilled and how they contribute to the development and diffusion of biomass energy particularly Jatropha biofuels in Tanzania, since the technology is locally so novel that it will require substantial experimentation in order to be commercially viable and applicable on a larger scale.

Today they amount for about 15% of the total primary energydemand, with biomass and hydro-power having with 10% and 5% the biggest shares. All theother renewable energy sources, as wind power, solar heat and photovoltaic, play a minor rolesince they don't even cover 1% of the primary energy demand. Renewable energy sourcescould solve both major problems of the energy sector, since they are carbon neutral and bydefinition renewable. The drawbacks are that at the moment most renewable sources are notcompetitive and need to be subsidized by governments and the technical challenge of storingthe produced energy.It is easy to understand that the future of the energy sector is highly uncertain and that toolsthat are extrapolating past trends are of no use under these circumstances. In the last yearsseveral energy scenarios have been conducted, trying to display the major uncertainties. Notsurprisingly the results are strongly varying, leading to question of the characteristics and thequality of scenarios.

The recent rise to prominence of renewable energy and energy efficiency has been driven by their potential to lower the environmental impacts of energy use. As these technologies mature they must demonstrate not only their environmental benefits, but also their economic competitiveness. The relative costs and benefits of each potential project, whether large or small, must be systematically modelled and assessed before they can be financed and implemented. Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency: Assessment of Projects and Policies deals with the appraisal of such projects against financial and non-financial criteria, illustrating the assessment tools necessary to make appropriate, evidence based decisions as efficiently as possible. The most important technologies are first described, stressing their economic and performance characteristics. Key project appraisal concepts are then introduced, approaches to modelling the cash flows in energy projects are described, and the issues of uncertainty and optimisation are fully discussed. These financial concepts, together with methods for estimating greenhouse gas emissions, are extended to address aspects of energy policy. Illustrated with many case studies this is an ideal introduction to financial and non-financial appraisal techniques as applied to energy efficient and renewable energy technologies.

Salena Sangachhe Wind Energy for a Sustainable Future

In the present context of blackouts and severe power shortage it is only explicable that Nepal, among other alternative energy sources, is trying to develop its own wind power. However, lots of factors seem to be impeding its development. Therefore, in order to understand and explore the possible routes to success for the wind power development in Nepal, this book looks into the close neighbor, India and investigates its relative success in Wind Industry. Upon analysis on Indian success on wind technology with regard to the contribution of low carbon technology transfer, it was observed that India effectively assimilated wind technology from abroad following a range of initiatives. Further, exploring the issues related to wind power development in Nepal, illustrated that similar initiatives are required in Nepal as well. Meanwhile, one could also agnize the potential of Nepal-India collaboration in the development process of wind technology in Nepal. This book is thus expected to be useful to wind energy developers and promoters trying to bring wind technology into mainstream in the developing countries and also to low carbon technology transfer advocates.

In their book Nicola Armaroli, Vincenzo Balzani and Nick Serpone uncover the background details associated with a transition to sustainable energy production that are routinely swept under the table in public discussions. They are not only concerned with the (alleged) advantages and disadvantages of any one energy generation technology from a technical viewpoint, but also with the ecological, economic, political and social consequences of an inevitable transition. In a highly readable manner aimed at an international audience, the authors introduce the often misused and sometimes abused term 'energy' and give a lucid account of the development of energy production from timber to nuclear energy and renewable energies. They compare various energy generation methods with respect to their efficiency and practicability for large-scale implementation and examine if, and how, these methods live up to the expectations and promises their proponents make. In addition, the authors juxtapose the political and economic prerequisites in different regions of the world that advance, or hinder, an energy turnaround. They round off their book by debunking the seventeen most popular myths often cited in discussions on energy issues. As a result, the authors provide ammunition for debate, underpin (and unsettle) opinions using facts, and challenge comfortable and popular chains of reasoning.

Based on a detailed examination of major UN global climate change and sustainable development negotiated outcomes over the course of several decades, this book argues in a powerful and insightful manner that intergovernmental negotiated outcomes aimed at solving the climate change and energy access challenges have been restricted by being placed in different negotiating silos. This “siloization” or compartmentalization has resulted in separate tracks of negotiated outcomes on two inextricably linked global development challenges; and, has thereby hindered prospects for integrated action. This book points out that the existence of these two silos is especially hard to ignore in light of the urgent UN-led quest for an integrated and universal post-2015 development agenda anticipated to be anchored by new sustainable development goals on energy access and climate change. By addressing the heavy reliance on inefficient and polluting energy services which result in indoor air pollution and short lived climate pollutants that tragically impact millions of poor people, this book highlights the unique importance of integrated action on the energy-poverty-climate change nexus in the UN’s post-2015 development era.
