Grants to this Grantee
for electricity market design for deep decarbonization  
Rapid decarbonization of electricity generation is essential to fighting climate change. Organized wholesale markets account for roughly two-thirds of U.S. generation. These markets are "designed" by policymakers, and current designs are not compatible with deep decarbonization. The project will work with academics and practitioners to develop new models for electricity markets around deep decarbonization and variable renewable energy.
for expanding electric mobility in India  
The World Resources Institute’s Sustainable Urban Mobility program in India has focused on city-based solutions to clean and accessible transportation. The Institute has also served as the secretariat for the newly launched Go Electric forum, which convenes career government staff, civil society, transport service providers, infrastructure providers, and manufacturers to discuss topics with the goal of developing agreements and solutions to meet India’s aggressive electric mobility goals.
for research on development and deployment of carbon removal technologies  
This grant will support WRI’s carbon dioxide removal (CDR) program. They focus on four objectives: develop analytically grounded policy proposals to advance carbon removal; strengthen the coalition of climate advocates that support CDR; engage with the private sector to build support for policies that promote CDR; and, finally, elevate promising emerging CDR technologies.
