Can we achieve the rates of energy transition required to limit global warming to below 2 degrees? Policy card C3

By limiting low-carbon energy technology deployment rates to within historical limits, it is possible to keep average global warming to around 2°C by 2100. These historical limits are based on what has been achieved by a small number of energy technology transitions in individual countries, so […]

How can reducing energy demand help keep global warming below 2 degrees? Policy Card C4

People and businesses can be encouraged by targeted policies to change their behaviour around using energy and energy efficient technologies. Policy tools such as regulations, standards and financial instruments can lower energy demand, and result in health and economic co-benefits. AVOID 2 ran two model simulations of […]

Representing the behavioural dimension of energy demand in stringent mitigation scenarios (C4)

In many low carbon scenario projections, energy efficiency improvements and other demand-side mitigation actions contribute a significant share of energy and emissions reductions.

This study investigates the representation of behavioural dimensions in energy systems models, such as barriers to energy efficiency and policies to overcome them, as […]

The contribution of non-CO2 greenhouse gas mitigation to achieving long-term temperature goals (C2b)

In the latest (fifth) assessment from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) non-CO2 emissions accounted for 28% of total GHG emissions in 2010, when measured on the basis of their global warming potential (relative to CO2) over a 100-year timespan, a measure known as GWP100 […]

Assessing the challenges of global long-term mitigation scenarios (C2a)

The implications of global mitigation to achieve different long-term temperature goals (LTTGs) can be investigated in integrated assessment models (IAMs), which provide a large number of outputs including technology deployment levels, economic costs, carbon prices, annual rates of decarbonisation, degree of global net negative emissions required, as […]
