A Desert Oasis: The Rebirth of Queen Alia International Airport, Jordan

Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA) has been Jordan’s principal domestic and international airport since it was built in 1983, handling more than 97% of the country’s air traffic. But QAIA was built at a time when air traffic and passenger numbers were low and sustained growth of 7% per year since 2000 meant the airport could simply not meet the demand. So in 2007, the government looked to partner with the private sector to expand and rehabilitate the airport, including constructing a new 900,000-square foot terminal, and asked IFC for help.

A Low-Carbon Energy Transition in Central America: A Case Study in Nicaragua

Here, we use Nicaragua as a case study to highlight the importance of high-resolution open access data and modeling platforms to evaluate fuel-switching strategies and their resulting cost of power under realistic technology, policy, and cost scenarios (2014–2030). Our results suggest that Nicaragua could cost-effectively achieve a low-carbon grid (?80%, based on non-large hydro renewable energy generation) by 2030 while also pursuing multiple development objectives. Regional cooperation (balancing) enables the highest wind and solar generation (18% and 3% by 2030, respectively), at the least cost (US$127 MWh?1). Potentially risky resources (geothermal and hydropower) raise system costs but do not significantly hinder decarbonization. Oil price sensitivity scenarios suggest renewable energy to be a more cost-effective long-term investment than fuel oil, even under the assumption of prevailing cheap oil prices. Nicaragua's options illustrate the opportunities and challenges of power system decarbonization for emerging economies, and the key role that open access data and modeling platforms can play in helping develop low-carbon transition pathways.
