    A 2050 Perspective on the Role for Carbon Capture and Storage in the European Power System and Industry Sector

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) might be a central technology to reach the decarbonisation goals of the European energy system. However, CCS deployment faces multiple economic, technological, and infrastructure challenges. Related literature tends to only focus on certain aspects of the CCS technology or to be limited to a particular sector perspective. In contrast, this paper presents a holistic ...

    100% Renewable Energy Scenarios for North America: Spatial Distribution and Network Constraints

    The urgency to combat climate change and the widely distributed, increasingly competitive renewable resources in North America are strong arguments to explore scenarios for a renewable energy supply in the region. While the current power system of North America is heavily dependent on fossil fuels, namely natural gas, coal and oil, and some nuclear power plants, some current policies at the state level, ...

    Fossil Natural Gas Exit – A New Narrative for the European Energy Transformation towards Decarbonization

    This paper discusses the potential role of fossil natural gas in the process of the energy transformation in Europe on its way to decarbonization. Mainstream conventional wisdom has it that natural gas, perhaps in combination with other gases, should maintain an important role in the energy mix, first, as a "bridge fuel", and then through a gradual transition toward "decarbonized gases". However, when ...

    Die EU Sustainable-Finance-Strategie: Implikationen für die künftige Bundesregierung

    Die überarbeitete Sustainable-Finance-Strategie der EU bestätigt die wichtige Rolle der Finanzbranche für die Nachhaltigkeitstransition der Wirtschaft, konkretisiert sie jedoch nicht ausreichend. Viele der Maßnahmen sind begrüßenswert, oft mangelt es jedoch an Dringlichkeit und Dynamik. Die Strategie sollte stärker in das gesamtwirtschaftliche regulatorische Umfeld eingeordnet werden, um das Zusammenwirken ...

    The Effects of Natural Disasters on Price Stability in the Euro Area

    This paper investigates the impact of natural disasters on price stability in the euro area. We estimate panel and country-specific structural vector autoregression (VAR) models by combining estimated damages of disaster events with monthly data for the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) for all euro area countries over the period 1996-2021. Besides estimating the effect on overall headline ...

    An Effective Federal Climate Change Act Needs Leading Indicators

    To reach the climate targets, the course towards a climate-neutral society must be set now. However, the current monitoring instruments in the Climate Change Act do not provide sufficient information to policymakers and society on the effectiveness of policy instruments and programs, as they focus exclusively on greenhouse gas reduction targets, which are subject to uncertainty. Moreover, they only ...

    Strengthening Gender Justice in a Just Transition: A Research Agenda Based on a Systematic Map of Gender in Coal Transitions

    For climate change mitigation, a rapid phase-out of fossil fuels such as coal is necessary. This has far-reaching gender-specific consequences. This paper presents a systematic map of the literature that examines the impact of historical coal phase-out processes on women and their role in these processes. The search process consisted of screening over 3100 abstracts and reading 247 full-text studies. ...

    The Death Valley of Coal – Modelling COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios for Steam Coal Markets

    This paper examines medium and long-term perspectives for global steam coal production and trade, considering the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and plausible recovery scenarios in its aftermath. We use an interdisciplinary approach to develop a range of stylized global coal demand scenarios until 2040 depicting the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting recovery stimuli. Additional ...

    The Role of Energy Storage in the Uptake of Renewable Energy: A Model Comparison Approach

    The power sector needs to ensure a rapid transition towards a low-carbon energy system to avoid the dangerous consequences of greenhouse gas emissions. Storage technologies are a promising option to provide the power system with the flexibility required when intermittent renewables are present in the electricity generation mix. This paper focuses on the role of electricity storage in energy systems ...

    Environmental Kuznets Curve in France and Germany: Role of Renewable and Nonrenewable Energy

    This paper aims to quantify the relation between real GDP, CO2 emissions, renewable and nonrenewable energy consumption, tourism development and labor force for France and Germany as these two countries are pioneer countries pushing Paris agreement within and outside the European Union. The time spans have been used for the period of 1995–2015 according to data availability. In the presence of cross-sectional ...
