Johansson, Daniel J.A.; et al. (2020): The role of negative carbon emissions in reaching the Paris climate targets: The impact of target formulation in integrated assessment models

Johansson, Daniel J.A.; Azar, Christian; Lehtveer, Mariliis; Peters, Glen P. (2020): The role of negative carbon emissions in reaching the Paris climate targets: The impact of target formulation in integrated assessment models. In Environ. Res. Lett. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/abc3f0.

"Across two Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), we found that the amount of net-negative emissions – when global net emissions fall below zero – depends to a large extent on how the target is represented, i.e. implemented in the model."

Zakkour, Paul D.; et al. (2020): Progressive supply-side policy under the Paris Agreement to enhance geological carbon storage

Zakkour, Paul D.; Heidug, Wolfgang; Howard, Andrew; Stuart Haszeldine, R.; Allen, Myles R.; Hone, David (2020): Progressive supply-side policy under the Paris Agreement to enhance geological carbon storage. In Climate Policy, pp. 1–15. DOI: 10.1080/14693062.2020.1803039.

"As the Paris Agreement moves towards implementation, we explore opportunities it presents to move part of the climate change mitigation challenge upstream into supply-side climate policy. Supply-side climate policies have been sparsely employed to date, although interest is growing in approaches that can curtail and end fossil fuel production."
