The impacts of climate change avoided by future reductions in emissions as defined in the Intended Nationally-Determined Contributions (B2c)

This report presents an assessment of the global and regional impacts of climate change under climate scenarios based on the Intended Nationally-Determined Contributions (INDCs) declared by parties to the UNFCCC as of early November 2015 and as interpreted by DECC.

The estimated total emissions in 2030 are […]

Literature review and synthesis of recent climate change impacts research (B1b)

This report presents an assessment of the evidence on the global and regional impacts of climate change that was presented in AR5 together with research that has been published subsequently. It draws together results from several independent studies across a number of sectors, and seeks to present them […]

Exploring the feasibility of low-carbon scenarios using historical energy transitions analysis (C3)

This study analyses the dynamics pf previous energy transitions with a view to applying these insights to assess the feasibility of low-carbon scenarios produced by a global energy systems model (the Grantham Institute’s TIMES Integrated Assessment Model, TIAM-Grantham).

The study first reviews recent literature investigating […]

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 […]
