The CARISMA Climate Change Mitigation Monitor series is a range of publications with short briefing notes, highlights of recent publications, and CARISMA project updates. The series was started in the run-up to the Paris climate change conference (COP21) in 2015 by the EU-funded POLIMP project, and has been published by CARISMA since 2016.
The 8th issue of the Climate Change Mitigation Monitor series includes articles on life cycle emissions of artificial trees and renewable energy; collaborative R&I initiatives across borders; the system impacts of renewables; contextual factors affecting climate change mitigation policies; and more.
The 7th issue of the Climate Change Mitigation Monitor series includes an article by Emilie Alberola and Benoît Leguet (I4CE) on how to manage interactions between and among climate and energy policies. Other short notes are among others on the role of woody biomass in the EU’s renewables targets, offshoring of R&D in climate technologies, and smart grids.
In the 6th issue of the Climate Change Mitigation Monitor, Wytze van der Gaast (JIN) introduces the report ‘Guidance for Preparing a Technology Action Plan’ for the TNA programme for developing countries. Other short notes in the publication are among others on the EU heating and cooling strategy, technology transfer, and IEA technology roadmaps.
