Outputs

Below, you will be able to find all the outputs, including publications, summary notes and webinar recordings, produced throughout the lifetime of the Climate Recon 2050 project. Before the first outputs of the project are made available, we invite you to explore our collection of Partner Publications: a selection of papers and other documents on the topic of climate strategies, decarbonisation scenarios and long-term climate governance, produced by the project’s partners.

Climate planning for 2050 has become a core strand of debate in the European Union. Focus has shifted to a potential revision of the EU’s long-term climate objectives within the context of a new 2050 strategy, which is to be submitted to the United Nations under the Paris Agreement by 2020.

In the last years the aim of "reaching net zero emissions" gained political momentum. Building compliance with the Paris Agreement will require developing policies and measures aiming for this "net zero" goal. In this note we discuss the definition and implication of net zero emissions and conduct comparative analysis of three case studies from Germany, France and Scandinavia.

Energy system models play an important role in the process of deriving climate strategies and policies. Full transparency in calculating these long-term scenarios is essential for credibility and reproducibility of the scenarios and the respective climate strategies. Open data and models furthermore enable broad collaboration and increase efficiency by avoiding duplication of work.
