  • Towards a green energy economy? Tracking the employment effects of low_carbon technologies in the European Union

    Markandya, Anil; Arto, Iñaki; González_Eguino, Mikel; Román, 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...

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

    Alexandros Nikas; Haris Doukas; Jenny Lieu; Rocío Alvarez Tinoco; Vasileios Charisopoulos; Wytze van der Gaast (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. Design/methodology/approach This methodological framework is based on the concepts of market maps. The process of e...

    Mitigation implications of an ice_free summer in the Arctic Ocean

    González_Eguino, Mikel; Neumann, Marc B.; Arto, Iñaki; Capellán_Perez, Iñigo; Faria, Sérgio H. (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...

    Significant implications of permafrost thawing for climate change control

    Mikel González-Eguino; Marc B. Neumann (2016)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    Large amounts of carbon are stored as permafrost within the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. As permafrost thaws due to climate warming, carbon dioxide and methane are released. Recent studies indicate that the pool of carbon susceptible to future thaw is higher than was previously thought and that more carbon could be released by 2100, even under low emission pathways. We use an integrated model of the climate and the economy to study how including these new estimates influence the control of ...

    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...

    Anil Markandya; Iñaki Arto; Mikel González-Eguino; Maria V. Román (2016)
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    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 employment effects and have ignored the effects between different sectors and countries. This paper looks, for the first time, at th...

    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 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Under Different Scenarios Of Permafrost Melt'

    Mikel González-Eguino; Marc B. Neumann (2018)
    Publisher: Zenodo
    Projects: EC | TRANSrisk (642260)
    This dataset contains the underlying data for the following publication Significant implications of permafrost thawing for climate change control, Climatic Change, DOI: 10.1007/s10584-016-1666-5.  This data set contains the permafrost emissions used as inputs for the DICE model. These are estimates of the emissions release from permafrost under the RCP 2.6 scenario (GtCO 2 -eq y −1. Three inputs were used: the median, 16th percentile and 84th percentile pathway.

    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.
