Contribution to the discussion on the evaluation of Carbon Capture and Utilisation


Under Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) we summarise all relevant technologies for capturing, transport, and the subsequent utilisation of carbon. In the promising perspective CCU seems to reduce emissions by substitution of fossil products. For the evaluation we have to apply a more holistic view on these technologies and especially their energy consumption. In order to clarify the role of CCU...read more

Climate cost modelling

Analysis of damage and mitigation frameworks and guidance for political use


Monetizing climate costs is an important instrument to highlight the benefits of climate protection. This research report presents and compares the damage cost and the mitigation cost approaches. Both approaches are fundamentally different and for different questions either the one or the other gives the conceptionally correct answer. The report shows the basic procedures, crucial modelling approa...read more
