The Evolving Role of the Power Sector Regulator

This report seeks to briefly characterize the evolving role of the power sector regulator. It describes seven existing objectives of power sector regulators and nine emerging objectives, highlighting key challenges and outlining interdependencies. As the preliminary installment in a series, it aims to lay the groundwork for subsequent reports and case studies that will explore these topics in depth.

Reaching Net-Zero Carbon by 2040: Decarbonizing and Neutralizing the Use Phase of Connected Devices

whitePaper | June 15, 2022

As part of our Climate Pledge commitment to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, Amazon is working to measure, reduce, and neutralize the emissions across every part of our business. For Amazon Devices, we are integrating carbon reduction strategies across the life cycle of our devices, including materials and manufacturing, transportation, use, and end-of-life phases. This paper focuses on the use phase, which accounts for 10-15% of the overall carbon footprint of rechargeable battery-operated devices and 60-80% of the footprint of plugged-in devices. We believe this phase is an important area of focus, since consumer electronics will always require some amount of electricity to operate. As the world becomes more connected even beyond consumer electronics, we believe that connectivity in itself allows us to rethink how we approach use phase decarbonization for all connected devices.

The Great Industrial Repositioning Planning for Corporate Impact and how to Navigate the (Energy) Crisis

whitePaper | November 12, 2022

The phrase ‘perfect storm’ may be a bit over-used lately, but it does accurately describe the situation that European industries are currently in. Several economic and political developments have led to this perfect storm. The COVID-19 crisis has boosted demand, while on the other hand supply chains are struggling to get back up to speed. On top of that, gas prices recently reached an extraordinary high in Europe and high energy prices are pushing up manufacturing cost. Demand for both energy and goods is predicted to remain strong due to high purchase power that is fuelled by low unemployment rates and a surplus of savings, putting extra pressure on scarce supplies. In addition, inflation rates are at an unprecedented level and central banks are fighting inflation by increasing base interest rates.
