  • report - December 2, 2015

    The transition from fossil fuels to cleaner, safer energy technologies is underway and offers hope for limiting warming to 2°C. This study by ClimateWorks, New Climate Institute, Ecofys, and Climate Analytics compares past projections with actual developments in renewable energy, coal consumption, and passenger vehicles.

  • report - April 20, 2017

    Meeting the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature limit requires a decarbonization of the global energy system by mid-century. This report looks at the technology trends driving decarbonization in three sectors—power, transportation, and buildings—along with empirical evidence on what can drive these rapid transitions.

    Through our partnership with the System for Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Removals Estimates (SEEG), a platform developed by a consortium of Brazilian NGOs under the umbrella of the Brazilian Climate Observatory, we have expanded Carbon Transparency Initiative modeling to Brazil.

    To download the CTI Brazil model, please follow the download link, which will ask for a name and email address. As it is a macro-enabled workbook, you will receive security prompts from Excel when opening it and will need to enable the use of macros for it to function properly. From this page one may also download the full site data in order to make your own comparisons to the other CTI geographies.
