An overview of the motivations behind the writing of this book, the scientific background and context of the research. Brief outline of all methodologies used, followed by assumptions and the storyline of each scenario. Presentation of main results of the renewable energy resources assessment, transport scenario, longterm energy pathway, the power sector analysis, employment analysis and an assessment for required metals for renewable energy and storage technologies. Key results of non-energy… 

Institutional decarbonization scenarios evaluated against the Paris Agreement 1.5 °C goal

Scientifically rigorous guidance to policy makers on mitigation options for meeting the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal requires an evaluation of long-term global-warming implications of

It Is Still Possible to Achieve the Paris Climate Agreement: Regional, Sectoral, and Land-Use Pathways

It is still possible to comply with the Paris Climate Agreement to maintain a global temperature ‘well below +2.0 °C’ above pre-industrial levels. We present two global non-overshoot pathways (+2.0

Institutional “Paris Agreement Compatible” Mitigation Scenarios Evaluated Against the Paris Agreement 1.5°C Goal

It is found that few published scenarios that claim to be compatible with the Paris Agreement are so, and root causes based on the underlying energy system transformation are investigated.

How to achieve the climate targets? Spatial planning in the context of the German energy transition

A nationwide coordinated strategy for the successful implementation of the energy transition with the help of spatial planning and public participation is proposed and shows that people at regional level underestimate their responsibility for contributing to energy transition.

Moving towards socio-technical scenarios of the German energy transition—lessons learned from integrated energy scenario building

This paper presents an application of a socio-technical scenario building method for improving long-term scenarios and strategies for the energy transition in Germany and provides insight into the method’s capacity to improve the consistency of energy scenarios and to identify potential societal risks related to the energy Transition process.

Assessment of Renewable Energy Deployment Roadmaps

This research implements a methodology to the joint assessment of the photovoltaic and onshore wind investment roadmaps put forward by the main institutions in the field, International Renewable

Long-Term Electricity Scenarios for the MENA Region: Assessing the Preferences of Local Stakeholders Using Multi-Criteria Analyses

In recent years, most countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), including Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia, have rolled out national policies with the goal of decarbonising their economies.



Analysis of Potential for Critical Metal Resource Constraints in the International Energy Agency’s Long-Term Low-Carbon Energy Scenarios

As environmental problems associated with energy systems become more serious, it is necessary to address them with consideration of their interconnections—for example, the energy-mineral nexus.

Sustainability of Rare Earths—An Overview of the State of Knowledge

Rare Earths (RE) have been the focus of much attention in recent years as a consequence of a number of converging factors, prominent among which are: centralization of supply (in China), unique

Mineral supply for sustainable development requires resource governance

This work presents, through analysis of a comprehensive set of data and demand forecasts, an interdisciplinary perspective on how best to ensure ecologically viable continuity of global mineral supply over the coming decades.

End of Life Management: Solar Photovoltaic Panels

Solar photovoltaic (PV) deployment has grown at unprecedented rates since the early 2000s. As the global PV market increases, so will the volume of decommissioned PV panels, and large amounts of
