Phys.org: Future of planet-cooling tech: Study creates roadmap for geoengineering research

"Simply reducing greenhouse gas emissions probably is not going to be sufficient for the planet to escape catastrophic damage from climate change, scientists say. Additional actions will be required, and one option is solar geoengineering, which could lower temperatures by methods such as reflecting sunlight away from the Earth through the deployment of aerosols in the stratosphere. However, the prospect of experimenting with the Earth's atmosphere has left some people skeptical of the process."

Daggash, H.; et al. (2019): The role and value of negative emissions technologies in decarbonising the UK energy system

Daggash, H.; Heuberger, C.; Mac Dowell, N. (2019): The role and value of negative emissions technologies in decarbonising the UK energy system. In: International Journal of Greenhouse Gas Control 81, S. 181–198. DOI: 10.1016/j.ijggc.2018.12.019.

"This study, via a power supply capacity expansion model, investigates the potential role of bio-energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air capture and storage (DACS) in meeting the UK's emissions reduction targets. We show that to achieve power sector decarbonisation, a system dominated by firm and dispatchable low-carbon generators with BECCS or DACS to compensate for their associated emissions is significantly cheaper than a system dominated by intermittent renewables and energy storage."
