Identifying Research Priorities and assessment needs for the case of Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

CARISMA Blog | 8 November 2017

With the attention now shifted to the implementation of the Paris Agreement, many argue that early peeking of global emissions around 2020 and focus on zero emissions are critical for achieving the necessary mitigation and temperature goals. As a result, globally negative CO2 emissions may be required by the second half of the century to remove the gas from the atmosphere and store it on land, underground or in the oceans. Read more...

Identifying Research Priorities and assessment needs for the case of Solar Photovoltaics (PV)

CARISMA Blog | 8 November 2017

Solar PV is a technology which has experienced exponential growth and has significant potential to aid the transition towards a low-carbon energy system. However, increased shares of solar energy, have revealed some challenges that need to be dealt with in order for the technology to maintain its exponential growth. These challenges include intermittency issues due to the resilience of Solar PV operation on weather conditions, current business models’ inadequacy to incorporate new actors entering the market, energy efficiency and standardization procedures, and recycling procedures and obligations determination. Read more...

CARISMA D7.3 International Collaborations in Industry on Climate Change Mitigation R&I Initiatives

Policy Brief | 26 October 2017

As international collaborative research and innovation (R&I) initiatives have the potential to advance climate change mitigation technology transfer across borders, in particular in developing countries, some industries have developed various international R&I collaborative initiatives to facilitate deployment of low-carbon technologies and practices. This Policy Brief summarises general lessons and identifies recommendations for stimulating international collaborations on R&I among industries for policy makers and for industry. Read more...

CARISMA Discussion Paper No. 3 - EU climate leadership after Paris: rising to the challenge?

Discussion Paper | 3 October 2017

he European Union has often been described as a leader of climate change action, and convincing arguments can be found to support this leadership claim. However, recent economic, political and institutional developments such as the decision of the UK to leave the bloc or the rise of populist parties throughout Europe have put pressure on the EU itself and pose some significant challenges to its climate leadership role, particularly since current EU policies are unlikely to meet its commitment under the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 2 degrees. Read more...

CARISMA Discussion Paper No. 2 - Improving coherence in the post-Paris global climate governance architecture

Discussion Paper | 17 August 2017

This discussion paper examines the broader architecture for global climate governance after Paris and offers suggestions for improving coherence within international climate governance that can be implemented by Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement, Parties to other international legal instruments, non-Party stakeholders, and other relevant actors. Read more...
