Online-Workshop: TFCD Reporting Standard in Practice

In its Climate Action Programme 2030, the German government presented concrete measures for the country to reach its 2030 climate target: a reduction of greenhouse gas levels by 55 percent below 1990 levels. At the same time, the German government officially declared its aim to take a leading position in Sustainable Finance. Hence, the country intends to underpin the transformation to a low-carbon...

Do Benefits from Dynamic Tariffing Rise? Welfare Effects of Real-Time Retail Pricing Under Carbon Taxation and Variable Renewable Electricity Supply

We analyze the gross welfare gains from real-time retail pricing in electricity markets where carbon taxation induces investment in variable renewable technologies. Applying a stylized numerical electricity market model, we find a U-shaped association between carbon taxation and gross welfare gains. The benefits of introducing real-time pricing can accordingly be relatively low at relatively high carbon ...

Lessons from Germany’s Hard Coal Mining Phase-Out: Policies and Transition from 1950 to 2018

German hard coal production ended in 2018, following the termination of subsidies. This paper looks at 60 years of continuous decline of an industry that employed more than 600,000 people, through a case study comparing Germany’s two largest hard coal mining areas (Ruhr area and Saarland). Although predominantly economic drivers underlay the transitions, both provide valuable lessons for upcoming coal ...

Analyzing Climate and Energy Policy Integration: The Case of the Mexican Energy Transition

One of the main challenges faced by climate policy makers today is to design and implement policies capable of transferring climate policy goals into sectoral actions towards transformational pathways. Hence, climate policies need to be of cross-cutting character, lead to coherence with sectoral goals and reconcile diverging sectoral interests. Against this background, Mexico has undertaken significant ...

European Green Deal: Using Ambitious Climate Targets and Renewable Energy to Climb out of the Economic Crisis

The European Green Deal, initiated by the EU Commission, is a package of measures aimed at decarbonization and sustainable economic development with the goal of making the European Union climate neutral by 2050. To achieve this goal, the emission reductions target must be increased from 40 percent to 65 percent compared to 1990 levels, as the model calculations in this Weekly Report show. Fossil and ...

Modeling of Combined Heat and Power Generation in the Context of Increasing Renewable Energy Penetration

Combined heat and power (CHP) can achieve fuel efficiencies of up to 90% and is thus considered as economically advantageous and ecologically sound compared to uncoupled power and heat generation. This advantage is exploited only if CHP plants are operated as much as possible at their optimal operation point. Increasing penetration by variable renewable energy sources and more flexible technologies ...
