  • Mitigation implications of an ice‐free summer in the Arctic Ocean

    Mikel González‐Eguino; Marc B. Neumann; Iñaki Arto; Iñigo Capellán‐Perez; Sérgio H. Faria (2017)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    The rapid loss of sea ice in the Arctic is one of the most striking manifestations of climate change. As sea ice melts, more open water is exposed to solar radiation, absorbing heat and generating a sea-ice–albedo feedback that reinforces Arctic warming. Recent studies stress the significance of this feedback mechanism and suggest that ice-free summer conditions in the Arctic Ocean may occur faster than previously expected, even under low-emissions pathways. Here we use an integrated assessme...

    New Coal_Fired Plants Jeopardise Paris Agreement

    González_Eguino, Mikel; Olabe, Antxón; Ribera, Teresa (2017)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Global greenhouse gas emissions need to peak soon and be reduced practically to zero in the second half of this century in order to not exceed the climate targets adopted in the Paris Agreement. However, there are currently numerous coal-fired power stations around the world at different stages of construction and planning that could be completed in the next decade. If all these plants are actually built, their expected future emissions will make it very difficult to reach these targets, even...

    Evaluating Consistency in Environmental Policy Mixes through Policy, Stakeholder, and Contextual Interactions

    Jenny Lieu; Niki Artemis Spyridaki; Rocio Alvarez-Tinoco; Wytze van der Gaast; Andreas Tuerk; Oscar van Vliet (2018)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    This paper introduces a method to analyse and explore consistency within policy mixes in order to support the policymaking cycle and applies it to energy and climate change policies in the United Kingdom (UK) biofuels policy context. The first part of the paper introduces a multi-level method to evaluate consistency within policy mixes implemented over a period of time. The first level explores consistency across policy design features in policy mixes. The second level evaluates how stakehold...

    Managing stakeholder knowledge for the evaluation of innovation systems in the face of climate change

    Nikas, Alexandros; Doukas, Haris; Lieu, Jenny; Alvarez Tinoco, Rocío; Charisopoulos, Vasileios; van der Gaast, Wytze (2017)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Purpose – The aim of this paper is to frame the stakeholder-driven system mapping approach in the context of climate change, building on stakeholder knowledge of system boundaries, key elements and interactions within a system and to introduce a decision support tool for managing and visualising this knowledge into insightful system maps with policy implications. \ud \ud Design/methodology/approach – This methodological framework is based on the concepts of market maps. The process of eliciti...

    Towards a green energy economy? Tracking the employment effects of low-carbon technologies in the European Union

    Markandya, Anil; Arto, Inaki; Gonzalez-Eguino, Mikel; Roman, Maria V. (2016)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Available online 16 March 2016 © 2016 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 In the view of pressing unemployment and environmental problems, different policies have been proposed to create jobs in the transition to a green economy, including the so-called “green jobs”. There has been an intense debate on the quantification of these employment effects, especially in the European Union. Most studies have focused on estimating gross future em...

    Do Kenya's climate change mitigation ambitions necessitate large-scale renewable energy deployment and dedicated low-carbon energy policy?

    Dalla Longa, F.; van der Zwaan, B. (2017)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    In this paper Kenya's climate change mitigation ambitions are analysed from an energy system perspective, with a focus on the role of renewable and other low-carbon energy technologies. At COP-21 in 2015 in Paris, Kenya has committed to a `nationally determined contribution' of reducing domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 30% in 2030 in comparison to a business-as-usual projection. An efficient exploitation of the country's renewable energy resources is key to achieving this target. We use t...

    A group decision making tool for assessing climate policy risks against multiple criteria

    Nikas, Alexandros; Doukas, Haris; Martínez López, Luis (2018)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Climate policy making is challenging primarily in that it involves the assessment of data and methods across a multitude of scientific fields and disciplines. In this respect, integrated assessment models are being used, the level of detail in which allows for modelling all relations between climate and human activity. As a result, their structure is usually significantly complex and their use often excludes stakeholders and their valuable knowledge. The aim of this paper is to assess how mul...

    Health co-benefits from air pollution and mitigation costs of the Paris Agreement: a modelling study

    Prof Anil Markandya, PhD; Jon Sampedro, MSc; Steven J Smith, PhD; Rita Van Dingenen, PhD; Cristina Pizarro-Irizar, PhD; Prof Iñaki Arto, PhD; Prof Mikel González-Eguino, PhD (2018)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Background: Although the co-benefits from addressing problems related to both climate change and air pollution have been recognised, there is not much evidence comparing the mitigation costs and economic benefits of air pollution reduction for alternative approaches to meeting greenhouse gas targets. We analysed the extent to which health co-benefits would compensate the mitigation cost of achieving the targets of the Paris climate agreement (2°C and 1·5°C) under different scenarios in which ...

    Risk-based analysis and policy implications for renewable energy investments in Greece

    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Embargo end date: 2019/03/18
    Significant renewable energy (RE) investments have to be implemented in order to achieve the ambitious RE targets set in the EU for 2020 and beyond. Moreover, a great amount of capital has to be leveraged, as these projects are followed by high investment and financing costs. Main aim of this paper is the provision of a comprehensive assessment of the existing risk elements of RE investments in relation to the respective policies and the evaluation of their impact on the weighted average cost...

    Additional Radiative Forcing (Warming) Under The Different Scenarios For Ice Melt

    Mikel González‐Eguino, Marc B. Neumann, Iñaki Arto, Iñigo Capellán‐Perez, Sérgio H. Faria (2017)
    Publisher: Zenodo
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    This data set contains estimates of additional radiative forcing for 3 different sea-ice–albedo feedback (SIAF) scenarios, in addition to the baseline (no additional radiative forcing) scenario. The three scenarios are identical up to 2050, but vary significantly after this date.  Full details of methods used to create the dataset are provided within the ReadMe file.
