Climate Change - International
Climate Change and Energy - research into methods for assessing the potential for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and developing national action plans, and training for experts on the subject in over 40 developing countries.
Climate Change and Forestry - develop methods and tools for assessing GHG mitigation potential and costs in selected tropical countries and develop a global model of land use change and forestry. Including developing a model for estimating carbon emissions and sequestration from forest use (COPATH), as well as a model for comprehensively assessing mitigation options (COMAP). Other activities include identifying land use issues and suggesting innovative options that address the concerns of industry, farmers, environmental organization and other stakeholders.
Global Greenhouse Gas Emission Analysis - research analyzing national and global energy consumption, efficiency trends, and carbon flows; analyzing the potential for improving efficiency and storing carbon; and supporting international climate change studies such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessments.
IPCC Support - the International Energy Studies Group provides ongoing guidance in support of the United Nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Tasks include reviews, lead and convening authorship, section leadership of IPCC reports and technical contributions to the UNFCCC Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice Reports (SBSTA) and other international bodies.
Support for Developing Countries - provides technical assistance in three major programs involving developing and transitioning countries; the U.S. Country Studies Program (USCSP), and the Asia Least-Cost Greenhouse Gas Abatement Study (ALGAS), and the UNEP project "Economics of GHG Limitations, ongoing assistance under CLASP for improving appliance efficiency and on integrated European Strategies in India, China and other developing countries.
China Studies - the China Energy Group is committed to working collaboratively with energy researchers, supplies, regulators and consumers in China to better understand the dynamics of energy use in China and to develop and enhance the capabilities of institutions that promote energy efficiency.
Energy Efficiency Labels and Standards: International - The Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP), a collaboration among LBNL, the Alliance to Save Energy, and the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC), promotes the appropriate use of energy efficiency labels and standards for appliances, equipment, and lighting in developing and transitional countries.
Industrial Energy Analysis / Industrial Energy Use Analysis - analysis of industrial energy use synthesizes information on the performance of energy-efficient technologies and policies to provide policy makers with scientific input to support sustainable activities in the industrial sector.
