Ben Haley, Co-Founder, Evolved Energy Research, presents on the methodology and findings of a new report, 350 Pathways for the United States, one of the most sophisticated and complete representations of a net-zero emissions energy economy ever undertaken.
Zero carbon buildings aren't a thing of the future. They're viable and affordable right now, and present a massive opportunity to fight climate change cheaply.
Model-assisted quantitative analysis plays a significant role in developing long-term low-emission development strategies. This webinar provides an introduction to model-assisted analysis for non-specialists and shows practical ways to develop local capacity to undertake the analysis along with country examples.
U.S. states, cities and businesses are an essential part of the response to the global climate crisis – and their role is ever more crucial as the Trump administration moves to pull the United States from the historic Paris Agreement.

This commentary explores how two critical elements of the Paris Agreement – nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies (LTSs) – relate to one another, and how countries can allocate resources efficiently to develop both in a synergistic manner.
A price on carbon is necessary to reduce emissions, but it is not a silver bullet to keep the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C. Complementary policies will be needed that address market barriers and reduce costs of emissions reductions in coming decades.
This paper takes stock of the long-term strategies submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to understand how these strategies perceive and handle uncertainties, and construct and present scenarios. The paper also proposes a model-assisted scenario analysis to help identify robust strategies in the face of uncertainties.
Hurricane Dorian left the Bahamas government scrambling to mobilize resources for disaster response and recovery. The Bahamas is insured, but government institutions were so damaged by the storm that they had trouble responding immediately.
Scores of countries are expected to announce plans at next week's UN Climate Action Summit to accelerate and scale up global ambition to implement the Paris Agreement. Twelve have already shared their long-term strategies to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by midcentury. Climate Watch's new Long-term Strategy Tracker offers a look.
