Pathways for Germany’s Low-Carbon Energy Transformation Towards 2050
Like many other countries, Germany has defined goals to reduce its CO2-emissions following the Paris Agreement of the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP). The first successes in decarbonizing the
The public health implications of the Paris Agreement: a modelling study
Achieving Net Zero Emissions in Italy by 2050: Challenges and Opportunities
This paper contributes to the climate policy discussion by focusing on the challenges and opportunities of reaching net zero emissions by 2050 in Italy. To support Italian energy planning, we
Contribution of the land sector to a 1.5 °C world
The Paris Agreement introduced an ambitious goal of limiting warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels. Here we combine a review of modelled pathways and literature on mitigation strategies, and
Cascading Crypthecodinium cohnii Biorefinery: Global Warming Potential and Techno-Economic Assessment
Prior to the commissioning of a new industrial biorefinery it is deemed necessary to evaluate if the new project will be beneficial or detrimental to climate change, one of the main drivers for the
Integrated assessment of the role of bioenergy within the EU energy transition targets to 2050
Bioenergy is considered an important component within the European Union (EU) energy transition to meet mid‐century climate targets. Model assessments that have highlighted the role of bioenergy in
German Energy and Decarbonization Scenarios: “Blind Spots” With Respect to Biomass-Based Carbon Removal Options
In 2019, the German government agreed on a Climate Protection Program intended to deliver its 2030 climate targets. Concrete measures, such as a carbon price, will be put in place as early as 2021.


Achievability of the Paris targets in the EU—the role of demand-side-driven mitigation in different types of scenarios
With the Paris target of limiting global warming to well below 2 °C until 2100, at best even 1.5 °C, the question arises what this implies for the EU’s mitigation targets and strategies. In this
Low-emission pathways in 11 major economies: comparison of cost-optimal pathways and Paris climate proposals
In order to evaluate the effectiveness of climate policy, it is important to understand emission trends and policies at the national level. The 2015 Paris Agreement includes (Intended) Nationally
Alternative pathways to the 1.5 °C target reduce the need for negative emission technologies
Mitigation scenarios that achieve the ambitious targets included in the Paris Agreement typically rely on greenhouse gas emission reductions combined with net carbon dioxide removal (CDR) from the
A roadmap for rapid decarbonization
This work proposes framing the decarbonization challenge in terms of a global decadal roadmap based on a simple heuristic—a “carbon law”— of halving gross anthropogenic carbon-dioxide emissions every decade to lead to net-zero emissions around mid-century.
Contribution of the G20 economies to the global impact of the Paris agreement climate proposals
By 15 December 2015, 187 countries had submitted their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) summarising their climate actions after 2020 in the context of the Paris Agreement. We used
Direct air capture of CO2 and climate stabilization: A model based assessment
This paper provides a novel assessment of the role of direct air capture of CO2 from ambient air (DAC) on the feasibility of achieving stringent climate stabilization. We use the WITCH
