Small change won’t do – Why we must change the system to stop the climate crisis

The Climate crisis is hurting the people who have the least resources and voice. Climate action is urgent, and must be well designed to deliver a fair transition globally, as the recently published International System Change Compass (ISCC) describes.  After the G7 summit and before the political summer break the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) and the Open Society...

Are stranded assets still stranded? The effect of energy-security debates on redundant infrastructure

Until the Russian war in Ukraine and its strong effects on the re-organisation of energy flows in Europe, it seemed a consensus that fossil assets will become stranded within the coming decades due to ever more stringent climate policy. Therefore, investments in such assets should be avoided as early as possible. With the newly awakened focus on energy security, the insurance aspect of redundant...

Emobpy: A tool for time series generation of battery electric vehicles

emobpy is a Python open-source tool that enables us to generate battery electric vehicle time series. The tool was released in 2020 on Gitlab and PyPI for the first time. A description of the tool was published as an open-access article in Scientific Data. Now we have just passed the 10K downloads!. We want to reach out to everyone who uses emobpy or is...

Stranded Investments in the Coal Export Industry?

The Case of the Australian Galilee Basin Thermal coal exporters face increasing uncertainty about future coal demand and the risk of asset stranding is increasing. Nevertheless, new export-oriented coal mine projects like the Carmichael project in the Australian Galilee Basin are still brought forward. In this seminar, we discuss research results with the COALMOD-World model with Australian...

Expanding Solar Energy Capacity to Power the Transition to Heat Pumps

Increasing the use of heat pumps is an important measure for reducing carbon emissions in the heating sector as well as natural gas imports. This report uses an electricity sector model to investigate the effects of an accelerated expansion of the heat pump stock on the German electricity sector in 2030. Adding around six million heat pumps would increase electricity demand by nine percent in 2030; ...

Chances and Barriers for Germany’s Low Carbon Transition: Quantifying Uncertainties in Key Influential Factors

With the energy sector being one of the largest sources of global greenhouse-gas emissions, a swift change in the ways of energy generation and consumption is needed for a fulfilment of climate goals. But while the existence of global warming and the resulting need for action are widely agreed upon, there is a lot of discussion around the concrete measures and their timeline. A major cause of this ...

Impacts of Power Sector Model Features on Optimal Capacity Expansion: A Comparative Study

The transition towards decarbonized energy systems requires the expansion of renewable and flexibility technologies in power sectors. Many powerful tools exist to find optimal capacity expansion. In a stylized comparison of six models, we evaluate the capacity expansion results of basic power sector technologies. The technologies under investigation include base- and peak load power plants, electricity ...

The EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy and Its Contribution to Climate Neutrality

The EU Taxonomy is the first standardised and comprehensive classification system for sustainable economic activities. It covers activities responsible for up to 80% of EU greenhouse gas emissions and may play an important role in channelling investments into low-carbon technologies by helping investors to make informed decisions. However, especially in transition sectors much depends on the stringency ...
