AVOID 1: India’s 2050 low-carbon pathways workshop outcomes

August 13, 2013
|

The AVOID 1 programme has produced several studies on the basis for, and implications of, a range of climate targets, and potentially dangerous regional impacts and feasible emissions reductions more generally. As part of analysing the third question on the feasibility of pathways, the Grantham Institute at Imperial […]

AVOID 1: Avoided climate change in an Earth system ensemble

July 5, 2011
|

An Earth system model, HadCM3C, is used to explore the consequences of the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions compared to a ‘business as usual’ scenario.

The model is significantly more advanced than models typically used for providing mitigation advice. We use a collection of model runs, known as […]

AVOID 1: Achieving global temperature targets with different combinations of greenhouse gases

May 17, 2011
|

In principle, it is possible to achieve a given global temperature target with different combinations of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. However, atmospheric CO2 also has a direct effect on some impact sectors, such as ecosystem and crop productivity. Plant growth, and hence productivity, is influenced by […]

AVOID 1: The Potential for the Deployment of Negative Emissions Technologies in the UK

July 30, 2010
|

A mix of technological options to remove CO2 from the atmosphere could be viable at a reasonable scale and a reasonable cost in the order of magnitude of $100/tCO2 over coming decades. In the longer term this may allow a cap on CO2 emission trading/tax costs […]
