      Critical Materials For The Energy Transition: Lithium

      This paper discusses the global lithium industry structure and major players while reflecting on current costs changes and their further implications, the role of the governments could play to de-risk lithium supply and the opportunities innovation can play in reducing demand growth.

    • Critical Materials For The Energy Transition: Rare Earth elements

      The technical paper on Critical Materials for the Energy Transition emphasises that an accelerated energy transition requires a growing supply of critical materials, with Chapter 7 of the IRENA’s World Energy Transition Outlook 2022 further elaborating on these materials. IRENA continues to publish technical papers on groups of critical materials: the first one focuses on lithium and this second paper focuses on rare earth elements.

    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Kiribati

      Kiribati has identified a need for clear medium-term targets for fuel import reduction, and to complement these by scaling up renewables in its energy mix. Small scale off-grid solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have been in use since the 1970s, but experience in large-scale grid-connected solar PV applications is limited, necessitating capacity building for Kiribati’s move towards energy independence.

    • Renewables Readiness Assessment: Ghana

      Ghana has one of Africa’s highest rates of access to electricity. In 2014 this was estimated at 72%, with over 87% in urban areas and nearly 50% in rural areas. The country also exports power to its neighbours, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. The Ghanaian power industry is unbundled, comprising generation utilities, transmission and distribution companies, and independent power producers.
