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
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.
Assessing the technical potential of ASEAN countries to achieve 100% renewable energy supply
Abstract Pathways to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C in line with the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal and achievement of Sustainable Development Goals involve energy system
Energy transition scenarios: What policies, societal attitudes, and technology developments will realize the EU Green Deal?
Abstract The European Green Deal has been heralded as the“Europe's man on the moon moment” as it aims to achieve 100% GHG reductions by 2050. Achieving the decarbonization of the energy system will
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
Pathways to decarbonize passenger transportation: Implications to India’s climate budget
Abstract There is a lack of studies on assessing long-term impacts of different sectors on shrinking global carbon budget. Present study focuses on assessing contribution of electric vehicles (EVs)
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.
Decarbonization of Australia’s Energy System: Integrated Modeling of the Transformation of Electricity, Transportation, and Industrial Sectors
To achieve the Paris Agreement’s long-term temperature goal, current energy systems must be transformed. Australia represents an interesting case for energy system transformation modeling: with a
Environmental Sustainability Assessment of Multi-Sectoral Energy Transformation Pathways: Methodological Approach and Case Study for Germany
In order to analyse long-term transformation pathways, energy system models generally focus on economical and technical characteristics. However, these models usually do not consider sustainability


Energy modeling approach to the global energy-mineral nexus: A first look at metal requirements and the 2 °C target
Stringent GHG emission cuts are required for meeting the so-called Paris Agreement. Due to higher metal intensities of renewable energy, such a transition must also include required amounts of metal.
Assessing the need for critical minerals to shift the German energy system towards a high proportion of renewables
The German government has set itself the target of reducing the country׳s GHG emissions by between 80 and 95% by 2050 compared to 1990 levels. Alongside energy efficiency, renewable energy sources
Global metal flows in the renewable energy transition: Exploring the effects of substitutes, technological mix and development
Abstract This study analysed demand for 12 metals in global climate mitigation scenarios up to 2060 and quantified the impacts on demand of different assumptions on improvements and technological
Responsible mineral and energy futures: views at the nexus
Societal prosperity is underpinned by access to the increasingly interdependent resources of minerals and energy. In an era of mineral resource constraints and radical transition in the energy
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.
Material bottlenecks in the future development of green technologies
Abstract Decarbonizing world economies implies the deployment of “green technologies”, meaning a renovation of the energy sector towards using renewable sources and zero emission transport
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
