Hydrogen4EU (2021): Charting Pathways to Enable Net Zero

Hydrogen4EU (2021): Charting Pathways to Enable Net Zero. Hydrogen for Europe study.

"This joint modelling effort is among the first to consider explicitly the latest European targets (e.g. the 55% CO2 emissions reduction by 2030 and climate neutrality by 2050). It allows for an analysis of hydrogen’s potential with a detailed technological, sectoral and geographic scope, including 27 European countries and considering the potential of hydrogen imports from North Africa, the Middle East, Russia and Ukraine."

Luthria, Neva; et al. (2021): Policy Memo: An Approach to Scientific and Legislative Governance of Solar Radiation Modification Research in the United States

Luthria, Neva; Farrell, Steven L.; Paredes, Ingrid Joylyn (2021): Policy Memo: An Approach to Scientific and Legislative Governance of Solar Radiation Modification Research in the United States. In JSPG 18 (02). DOI: 10.38126/JSPG180207.

"We recommend that the US (1) stop blocking the UN from pursuing research into the impacts of SRM to allow for equitable governance options to be explored and (2) establish a national advisory committee on solar geoengineering."

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation?

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation? In Environmental Science & Policy 123, pp. 169–178. DOI: 10.1016/j.envsci.2021.05.011.

"The article examines how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) performs its self-proclaimed role as ‘mapmaker. We seek to contribute to the emerging literature on global environmental assessments (GEA) and climate politics by reconstructing how the IPCC imagines the corridor for climate mitigation."

Iyer, Gokul; et al. (2021): The role of carbon dioxide removal in net-zero emissions pledges

Iyer, Gokul; Clarke, Leon; Edmonds, Jae; Fawcett, Allen; Fuhrman, Jay; McJeon, Haewon; Waldhoff, Stephanie (2021): The role of carbon dioxide removal in net-zero emissions pledges. In Energy and Climate Change 2, p. 100043. DOI: 10.1016/j.egycc.2021.100043.

"This perspective highlights three issues. First, the scale of CDR deployment will determine the level of emission mitigation in the energy system and vice versa. Second, CDR will interact with societal priorities beyond climate. Finally, the location of CDR could have implications for the country-level pledges, and emissions trading."

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda

Gilmore, Elisabeth A.; Buhaug, Halvard (2021): Climate mitigation policies and the potential pathways to conflict: Outlining a research agenda. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change, e722. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.722.

"To contribute to efforts for aligning climate policy with broader societal goals, specifically those related to sustainable development, we identify the effects of climate mitigation policy on aspects of socioeconomic development that are known determinants of conflict and evaluate the plausibility and importance of potential pathways to armed conflict and political violence."

Abouelnaga, Mahmoud (2021): Carbon Dioxide Removal: Pathways and Policy Needs

Abouelnaga, Mahmoud (2021): Carbon Dioxide Removal: Pathways and Policy Needs. Center for Climate and Energy Solutions.

"Whether CDR solutions can scale to the levels that studies suggest are needed to have a significant impact on climate mitigation depends on numerous factors, including: the potential a given technique or technology has to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere; cost effectiveness; level of readiness to be deployed; scalability; how quickly the carbon sink reaches capacity; permanence of the carbon removals; and other benefits and challenges."
