Synthesising existing knowledge on the feasibility of BECCS: Workshop report (D1.b)

There is a growing and significant dependence on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in future emission scenarios that do not exceed 2°C warming; over 100 of the 116 scenarios associated with concentrations between 430–480 ppm CO2 depend on BECCS to deliver global net […]

Synthesising existing knowledge on the feasibility of BECCS (D1a)

There is a growing and significant dependence on biomass energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in future emission scenarios that do not exceed 2°C warming; over a hundred of the 116 scenarios associated with concentrations between 430–480 ppm CO2 depend on BECCS to deliver global […]

Planetary limits to BECCS negative emissions (D2.a)

This study focuses on the planetary limits to BECCS from first generation annual bio-energy (BE) crops coupled with Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

The acknowledged threat of many damaging aspects of climate change over the next century and beyond has prompted research into ways to reduce and […]

An updated view of tipping points and the relevance for long-term climate goals (A5)

While some aspects of climate change can be viewed as becoming proportionately larger with increasing forcings, other aspects may feature more complex, nonlinear behaviour. This can include abrupt and/or irreversible change, which may be associated with key thresholds. Such behaviour must be considered differently in assessments of […]

Post-IPCC assessment of climate impacts using existing scenarios – advances in understanding (B1a)

This review summarises the available literature on the impacts of climate change at different levels of climate forcing. It builds on the literature summarised in AR5 WG2 (IPCC 2014a) and includes studies published since. It focuses on studies which have explicitly compared impacts at different levels of climate […]
