Energy Transitions Commission (2021): Bioresources within a Net-Zero Emissions Economy: Making a Sustainable Approach Possible

Energy Transitions Commission (2021): Bioresources within a Net-Zero Emissions Economy: Making a Sustainable Approach Possible.

"In its new report Bioresources within a Net-Zero Emissions Economy, the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) makes plain that, while bioresources are in principle renewable, not all forms of biomass use are beneficial from an environmental perspective: not all biomass is ‘good’ biomass."

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."

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."

Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept

Beal, Colin M.; King, Carey W. (2021): The zero-emissions cost of energy: a policy concept. In Prog. Energy. DOI: 10.1088/2516-1083/abef1f.

"We present a new carbon tax policy concept in which energy users would be taxed an amount equal to the cost of cleaning up the emissions that they create, wherein the tax revenues would be used to operate negative emissions technologies."
