農地において支柱を立てて上部空間に太陽光発電設備を設置し、下部空間では営農を継続しながら発電を行う営農型太陽光発電(ソーラーシェアリング)は、再生可能エネルギー導入量の拡大が見込めること、農業者の収入拡大による農業経営の改善や6次産業化の推進も期待できることから、政府として推進する方針が掲げられ、様々な制度で導入促進が図られている。 例えば、再生可能エネルギーの導入促進のために固定価格買取制度が導入されているが、営農型太陽光発電と野立太陽光発電で買取価格が区別されていない。しかしながら、両者は費用構造や事業リスクが異なり、導入によってもたらされる便益も異なることから、その性質に則して営農型太陽光発電の推進のための施策が導入されることが望ましい。...

1. The ASEAN State of Climate Change Report (ASCCR) presented ASEAN’s mitigation goal: i) Achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as early as possible in the latter half of the 21st century; and ii) Cap peak GHG emissions as soon as possible after 2030 to ensure the net-zero GHG emission goal is met on schedule. 2. However, the updated...

The Paris Agreement sets the goal to limit the global warming to well below 2 °C and preferably 1.5 °C. The recent IPCC report warned that 1.5 °C-warming may occur much earlier than expected. To meet the 1.5 °C target, global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) should be net zero by 2050 or earlier. Increasing number of countries, local...

In Asia, Vietnam is one of the countries severely affected by energy shortages and climate change. Development of renewable energy from livestock wastes, e.g., production of electricity from biogas, is a solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution from untreated livestock wastes, as well as energy shortages. So that, biogas...
