Challenges of Coal Transitions

Today more than 45 % of all energy-related CO2 emissions come from burning coal. Thus, reducing CO2 emissions from coal use is a necessity for reaching the targets of the Paris Agreement. This will not only pose challenges for coal consumers (restructuring of the energy system), but also for countries whose economy is strongly depending on the production of coal.This paper examines the role of... read more

Soziale Diskurse und Ziele der Klimaanpassung

Die DAS formuliert Ziele im Kontext der ressortübergreifenden Strategie bislang sehr allgemein, was die Akzeptanz erhöht und die Übertragung auf spezifische Handlungskontexte erleichtert. Dies stellt jedoch eine Herausforderung für die Bewertung der Anpassungsfortschritte dar. Die Aufgabe der Studien war es von daher, dieses Spannungsverhältnis auszuloten.  Vor diesem Hintergrund  wurde unters... read more

Conference on Resource-Efficient Decarbonisation Pathways

At the RESCUE conference (“Resource-Efficient Pathways towards Greenhouse Gas Neutrality”), the German Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt, UBA) shared the results of a project to further explore the mutual dependencies and feedback loops between climate policies and associated resource requirements. Six different quantitative scenarios for Germany were modelled and analysed. These scenarios d... read more

Data on the Environment 2015

Environmental policy requires great staying power not only in terms of climate protection. A look at air pollution control and water protection shows that while harmful emissions to the environment are decreasing in many areas, this is no reason to sound the all clear. For example, only ten percent of rivers and streams in Germany and only about one percent of examined sections of North and Ba... read more

Coal-fired power generation and climate protection until 2030

With this position paper, the UBA proposes strategic measures and targeted climate policy instruments for achieving a reduction in coal-fired power generation for the period up until 2030. To achieve a disproportionately high reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by the energy sector as a contribution to achieving the climate protection targets by 2020, the UBA recommends to limit coal-fired p... read more

A resource efficient pathway towards a greenhouse gas neutral Germany

The study shows that it is possible to transform Germany to both greenhouse gas neutral and resource efficient. One side of the balance is greenhouse gas and raw material saving due to exit from fossil energy carriers and the other is the increased raw material use for the construction of the renewable energy system. In the “GreenEe” scenario it is possible to reduce the GHG emissions in 2050 ... read more
