Green technology choices

Complete Title: 
Green technology choices : the environmental and resource implications of low-carbon technologies
Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This report provides, for the first time, a comprehensive global-scale assessment of the benefits, risks, and trade-offs of energy efficiency technologies and their combined effects when deployed alongside low-carbon electricity supply technologies. The results of the report show that the majority of efficiency technologies, used for mobility, buildings and industry, bring environmental co-benefits beyond greenhouse gas mitigation, including reduced impacts on the environment, health and natural resources. However, some technologies may generate higher impacts than the baseline technology for certain regions and for certain years. The analysis also sheds light on the interactions between supply-side and demand-side low-carbon technologies since without decarbonizing electricity supply, the benefits of some energy efficiency technologies cannot be realized.
