Gastvortrag Global prospects for emissions pricing

Emissions trading is floundering in Europe and about to be abolished in Australia. But China and Korea are planning to introduce emissions trading schemes (ETS), while Mexico and South Africa are planning carbon taxes. In this seminar I will present an analysis of developments on climate policy in Australia and China; argue that hybrid approaches with a price floor are suitable for reform of the EU ETS and for ETS in China and other industrialising countries; and discuss the idea of carbon tax thresholds as a way to overcome political resistance to carbon taxes.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy EU-MENA Electricity Cooperation: How to move forward with Lighthouse Projects?

    It has become silent around the Desertec and Mediterranean Solar Plan. Yet, the increasing energy demand in North Africa and the Middle East do have implications for European energy security. There are good reasons to move forward with renewable energy and energy efficiency cooperation. What is the status quo of initiatives like the Mediterranean Solar Plan or the Desertec Industrial Initiative? How has the debate developed since 2009? What are the major hurdles and obstacles to take? How can lighthouse projects develop across the Mediterranean?

    Brown Bag Seminar of the Sustainability Cluster From Boom to Bust? - A critical look at US Shale Gas Projections

    Abstract
    The recent US shale gas boom has led to year-by-year upwards shifts in projected US natural gas production. However, it is unclear whether this production growth can be sustained, and whether the underlying resource estimates will prove accurate. Moreover, public acceptance may fall with ever more wells to be drilled and their adverse environmental impact. In accordance, regulation may be strengthened reducing the wells density and the potential area usable for production.
    In this paper, we take a critical look at current projection and investigate the implication of a less optimistic development of US shale gas production. By means of a partial equilibrium model we can highlight the change in natural gas flows and in necessary infrastructure expansions. In a world of declining US shale production (after 2015), Europe and Asia bear at least as high a burden as US consumers regarding the reduction in consumption levels of natural gas. Trade flows are attracted towards the US and in contrast to the current discussion it is not a question about LNG export capacity needs but about a regionally distributed import infrastructure.

    Konferenz Desert Power for the Mediterranean: time to get started

    Transforming the electricity system to almost 100% renewable energies is a vision shared by the EU and its neighboring countries in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. The event, taking place in Brussels/Charlemagne Building, aims to discuss the implementation steps needed to reach an integrated, renewables-based power system in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa (EUMENA) as outlined in Dii's newly released strategy "Desert Power: Getting Started". The report has been developed by Dii with scientific contribution of the institutes CESI, Comillas, DIW Berlin, Fraunhofer ISI, and TU Vienna.
     
    "Desert Power: Getting Started" builds on key topics on the current EU agenda, offering  recommendations and evaluations of policies effecting a market-driven transition to a renewable electricity future. Together with high level stakeholders from the EUMENA political, scientific and industrial sectors, the conference will offer a platform to discuss short-term steps required to progress inter-regional renewables development as well as to look at the long-term investments needed to realize this vision beyond 2020.
     
    The first part of the conference will focus on the current perspectives for EUMENA energy cooperation based on initiatives at the EU level and MENA regions. In this context, principles for short- to mid-term renewable energy off-take and investment conditions will be discussed. In the second part, the event will look at how to provide the basis for long-term infrastructure investment and the respective institutional framework.

    For further information, please find the report "Desert Power: Getting Started - The manual for renewable electricity in MENA" here or read the report "Policies for International Transmission Investment" here.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Public Policy and Energy Storage: A Case Study of the United States and Germany

    Recent developments in electricity markets have prompted renewed interest over the role of energy storage technology. Storage can provide various benefits for the functioning of an electrical grid, including system stability in times of electric interruption, help in meeting peak demand, the deferral or avoidance of adding or updating grid infrastructure, aiding the integration of variable renewable energy, and other functionalities that "improve the stability and resiliency of the electrical grid.

    The majority of energy storage technologies, other than pumped-hydro storage, do not exist at a large scale commercially or are in initial stages of demonstration. These technologies include various types of batteries, flywheels, compressed air energy storage, and power to gas technology. The integration of these technologies face numerous obstacles typically encountered by new and/or less-developed technology, including:

    • Deficient market structure;
    • Limited large-scale demonstration;
    • Insufficient technical progress;
    • Lack of standards and models; and
    • Weak stakeholder understanding. 

    Given this state, the role of public policy is vital to the development of these technologies. The intention of this paper is to identify and discuss policy efforts, primarily at the federal level, by the United States of America (U.S.) and Germany for less developed storage technologies, at a time when these efforts are particularly critical. This report concentrates on those policies and regulations most applicable to grid-level applications of storage technology, though storage efforts in the automobile industry, for instance for batteries and fuel cells, are likely also relevant for grid-level storage implementation. Public policy regarding research, development, demonstration, and regulation of relevant energy storage technologies are discussed for the U.S. and Germany, followed by a comparison between the two countries, analysis, and subsequent conclusions.

    Berlin Seminar on Energy and Climate Policy Energy Efficiency in Buildings as part of Energy and Climate Policy

    Germany has a 2050 reduction target of 80% for primary energy use in buildings. This Spring the Federal Government will be publishing a Sanierungsfahrplan outlining the routes and policies to achieve this target. The rate of uptake of energy efficiency measures in existing buildings is a key factor in achieving these goals. The realization of economic benefits from this ‘retrofitting' are dependent on many, varied factors and the way in which policy tackles them.

    After a discussion on the potential and nature of the reaching the 80% target, the seminar will illustrate the detailed issues by examining a key factor in the retrofit of residential building: the factors influencing choices of building occupiers to potential energy efficiency investments and related behaviours. The seminar will explore how building occupiers have responded to financial opportunities for energy efficiency savings. We hope that it will produce a lively discussion, with good interaction with experts.

    The discussion will primarily be held in English. However we will also welcome contributions to the discussion in German.

    Veranstaltung Netzausbau in Deutschland und den europäischen Nachbarländern – Ist weniger mehr?

    Es gibt viele aktuelle Anlässe, sich mit der Bedeutung der Höchstspannungsnetze für die Energiewende zu beschäftigen, sowohl im deutschen Kontext als auch in Bezug auf die europäischen Nachbarländer: Hierzu gehören u.a. die laufende Konsultation des Netzentwicklungsplans 2013, die parlamentarische Beratung des Bundesbedarfsplans aber auch der europäische Ten Year Network Development Plan:
    Sind die Vorschläge aus dem EnLAG bzw. dem Bundesbedarfsplan 2012 noch zeitgemäß, oder wäre nicht angesichts des Fortschreitens dezentraler Lösungen ein „weniger" an Netzausbau ein „mehr" für die Energiewende?

    • Welche Potenziale zur Steigerung der Leistungsfähigkeit der Netze gibt es jenseits des Netzausbaus?; benötigt die Energiewende HGÜ-Leitungen?
    • Wie kann die Umsetzung des Netzausbaus von europäischer Seite institutionell flankiert werden?
    • Welche Szenarien für grenzüberschreitenden Ausbau sind denkbar?
    Der Workshop soll diese und andere Fragen sowohl im Hinblick auf laufende Verfahren, aber auch der mittleren Frist diskutieren. Er dient auch der Vorstellung von Hintergrundstudien bzw. Politikpapieren der vier Hauptredner.
