Barben, Daniel; Matzner, Nils (2020): Anticipatory Governance of Climate Engineering

Barben, Daniel; Matzner, Nils (2020): Anticipatory Governance of Climate Engineering. In Oxford Research Encyclopedias: Geoengineering. DOI: 10.1093/acrefore/9780190228620.013.69.

"This article will discuss notions of anticipatory governance as developed in various institutional contexts concerned with assessing, funding, regulating, or conducting research and innovation. It will explore how notions of anticipatory governance have been transferred to the field of CE, in attempts at either shaping the course of CE-related research and innovation or at critically observing various CE-related governance endeavors by evaluating their capacities in anticipatorily governing research and technology development."

Call for Abstracts: Invitation to Submit to AGU 2020 Session on Approaches in Measurements and Modeling for Geoengineering

Deadline: 29. July 2020

"This session solicits contributions from participants who have interest and expertise in measurements and modeling of the Earth System that can be applied to Carbon Dioxide Removal and Solar Radiation Management. Through linking these fields in this session, current technologies and ideas will be shared in both realms, promoting further scientific understanding of geoengineering implications."

Geden, Oliver; Schenuit, Felix (2020): Unconventional mitigation. Carbon Dioxide Removal as a New Approach in EU Climate Policy

Geden, Oliver; Schenuit, Felix (2020): Unconventional mitigation. Carbon Dioxide Removal as a New Approach in EU Climate Policy. SWP Research Paper 2020/RP 08, June 2020. Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik. doi:10.18449/2020RP08.

"If the EU wants to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, enacting conventional climate change mitigation measures to avoid emissions of greenhouse gases will not be enough. To compensate for unavoidable residual emissions, unconventional measures to remove CO2 from the atmosphere will also be necessary – for example, through afforestation or the direct cap­ture of CO2 from ambient air."

Donnison, Caspar; et al. (2020): Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): Finding the win–wins for energy, negative emissions and ecosystem services—size matters

Donnison, Caspar; Holland, Robert A.; Hastings, Astley; Armstrong, Lindsay‐Marie; Eigenbrod, Felix; Taylor, Gail (2020): Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS): Finding the win–wins for energy, negative emissions and ecosystem services—size matters. In GCB Bioenergy. DOI: 10.1111/gcbb.12695.

"Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) features heavily in the energy scenarios designed to meet the Paris Agreement targets, but the models used to generate these scenarios do not address environmental and social implications of BECCS at the regional scale. We integrate ecosystem service values into a land‐use optimization tool to determine the favourability of six potential UK locations for a 500 MW BECCS power plant operating on local biomass resources."
