Building policies for a better world.
Buildings are a necessity for all people. Having access to safe and stable shelter only becomes more crucial as the effects of climate change are felt around the world. Emissions from the building sector represent nearly 40 percent of global energy and process related emissions. GBPN is leading the way in decarbonizing the building sector by supporting policy reform. Combining global insights with local action, GBPN works with governments to develop and implement energy-efficient building policies.
Global power sector leaders working to power the future of climate neutrality.
There is no question: our dependence on fossil fuels for electricity must end. We are in the age of renewables, and Agora Energiewende and the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP) are supporting policymaking that enables a swift transition to a clean energy grid that is also reliable, affordable, and equitable. Agora Energiewende is a nonprofit think tank and policy laboratory that develops scientifically based, politically feasible approaches for climate neutrality. Agora’s power sector program currently focuses on Poland, Turkey, South Africa, and China, together with country partner think tanks and support from RAP. Building on peer-to-peer relationships, RAP helps decision-makers and stakeholders navigate the complexities of climate and power sector policy, regulation, and markets.
International experts at decarbonizing industry.
Industry is responsible for around 40 percent of global GHG emissions. Creating real change requires fundamentally altering production processes in the sector. Agora Industry, which is part of the Agora Think Tanks, develops scientifically sound and politically feasible strategies for successful pathways to a climate-neutral industry. Agora Industry works on the industrial transformation in Europe, Brazil, Argentina and China as well as within multilateral institutions. With offices in Europe and Asia, Agora Think Tanks bring together decision-makers, stakeholders, scientists, and the media by combining research, dialogue, and outreach.
