Detailed analyses about the technical transformations we need to reach net-zero
Primary energy was only suited for a world dominated by fossil fuels. It doesn't have any sense in a future where electricity and renewables rule.
A detailed synthesis of the current of development of the direct air capture technology and a look at future perspectives
Batteries or fuel cells? What is the best way to decarbonize heavy-duty road transport in Europe?
The concept of energy return on energy invested is often used to compare different technologies. In this report we critically assess the limits and shortcomings of some existing analyses. We study the possibility of transitioning away from fossil fuels and the potential of renewables to provide sufficient net energy..
Mitigating climate change calls for a rapid transformation of our energy system. How fast can we actually transition?
While our economy is highly dependent on fossil fuels, replacing them by low-carbon energy sources is now crucial.
What if the world energy demand was bound to reach an asymptote? A detailed study of the national energy-economy links
How will climate change affect economic growth? Is a climate-driven recession possible?
