Energy

The world’s energy appetite is growing, leading more nations to seek a technology mix that simultaneously lowers greenhouse gas emissions and enables economic growth. Meanwhile, new energy investments are expected to continue to provide affordable and reliable energy services and expand them to populations that currently lack access to these services. The search for efficient, low-carbon energy sources involves a realistic assessment of the benefits and constraints of existing and new technologies, as well as their socioeconomic implications. Our studies inform decision-makers, enabling them to make sound, forward-looking choices from an expansive menu of technology and policy options aimed at lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
