    This paper provides: (i) the most comprehensive estimates of energy subsidies currently available for 176 countries; and (ii) an analysis of "how to do" energy subsidy reform, drawing on insights from 22 country case studies undertaken by IMF staff and analyses carried out by other institutions. On a "pre-tax" basis, subsidies for petroleum products, electricity, natural gas, and coal reached $480 billion in 2011 (0.7 percent of global GDP or 2 percent of total government revenues). Removing these subsidies could lead to a 13 percent decline in CO2 emissions and generate positive spillover effects by reducing global energy demand.

  • Study on spray patterns of gas-centered swirl coaxial injectors

    In this study, effects of the recess ratio and momentum flux ratio on the spray patterns of gas-centered swirl coaxial (GCSC) injectors have been experimentally investigated through cold flow tests in a high pressure chamber, in which the liquid fuel and gaseous oxidizer are simulated by water and gaseous nitrogen, respectively. By elevating the chamber pressure, the cold flow test conditions are adjusted to match the ratios of momentum flux,density, and velocity between the gas and liquid flows to those of the actual hot-firing conditions. The results showed that the spray patterns change drastically from a wide hollow cone to a narrow solid cone as the gas to liquid momentum flux ratio increases.

  • A Nuclear Rethink: Divergent Trends in Nuclear Energy Policy for the Twenty-First Century

    This paper explores the recent adoption of nuclear power in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and contrasts it with the recent decision to phase-out nuclear power in Germany and Switzerland. Assuming that all of these countries desire some semblance of energy security, while simultaneously seeking to reduce their carbon emissions, this paper asks: why do some states see nuclear as a necessary tool while others strongly object to its continued use? The debate surrounding nuclear power is often framed as an either/or debate that fails to seriously discuss the trade-offs of adopting or abandoning the technology. This paper argues that an informed debate about the benefits of nuclear power is needed to overcome the perceived risks of using the technology.

  • Carbon Lock-Out: Advancing Renewable Energy Policy in Europe

    As part of its climate strategy, the EU aims at increasing the share of electricity from renewable energy sources (RES-E) in overall electricity generation. Attaining this target poses a considerable challenge as the electricity sector is “locked” into a carbon-intensive system, which hampers the adoption of RES-E technologies. Electricity generation, transmission and distribution grids as well as storage and demand response are subject to important path dependences, which put existing, non-renewable energy sources at an advantage. This paper examines how an EU framework for RES-E support policies should be designed to facilitate a carbon lock-out.

  • Microbial fuel cells: novel biotechnology for energy generation

    Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) provide new opportunitiesfor the sustainable production of energy from biode-gradable, reduced compounds. MFCs function on differ-ent carbohydrates but also on complex substratespresent in wastewaters. As yet there is limited infor-mation available about the energy metabolism andnature of the bacteria using the anode as electronacceptor; few electron transfer mechanisms have beenestablished unequivocally. To optimize and developenergy production by MFCs fully this knowledge isessential. Depending on the operational parameters ofthe MFC, different metabolic pathways are used by thebacteria. This determines the selection and performanceof specific organisms. Here we discuss how bacteria usean anode as an electron acceptor and to what extentthey generate electrical output. The MFC technology is evaluated relative to current alternatives for energy generation.
