3 Trends in Decentralized Renewables and a Revolution

Interview with Michael Liebreich, Chairman of the Advisory Board and Founder of Bloomberg New Energy Finance

Michael Liebreich, founder of Bloomberg New Energy Finance, praises the Clean Energy Ministerial's (CEM's) Global LEAP initiative and its efforts towards developing energy-efficient appliances to meet the demands of low-income families and those in the off-grid market. Liebreich explains his predictions for the future of decentralized renewables and energy access, and discusses the trends he believes will help establish the new energy-efficient revolution. 

A Cooling Challenge in a Warming World

In a warmer, richer world, the demand for air conditioning will skyrocket. However, improving the average efficiency of air conditioners sold in 2030 by 30% compared to today’s models would reduce emissions of CO2 by up to 25 billion metric tons over the lifetime of the equipment. The Clean Energy Ministerial launched the Advanced Cooling Challenge to inspire governments and industry to make, sell, promote, and install super-efficient air conditioner or cooling solutions that are smart, climate friendly, and affordable.

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results.
