Is the EU’s energy transition getting into gear?
The European Court of Auditors releases a quarterly journal, and the march edition was dedicated to articles exploring the question “Is the EU’s energy transition getting into gear?”. They approached us to contribute an article on this crucial topic, and our experts, Géraldine DUFFOUR and Morgan CRENES, responded by writing the opening article of the journal: “Energy crisis and the energy transition – a supply-side shock in gas”, which can be found on page 7.
The geostrategic challenges of hydrogen
The vgbe is the international technical association for the generation and storage of electricity and heat. The vgbe releases a monthly energy journal in English and in German issued in 45 countries. They have selected our publication “The geostrategic challenges of hydrogen” to appear in the last edition of the vgbe journal.
Analysts see growing role of industrials as an EUA price driver
In November, Aurélien PEFFEN participated to a workshop in Brussels on “The EU-ETS price through 2030 and beyond: A closer look at drivers, models and assumptions”. Carbon Pulse used the figures of this workshop to publish an article “Analysts see growing role of industrials as an EUA price driver”, in particular, our POLES-Enerdata outcomes for EUA prices projection to 2030.
Rethinking sustainable investment
Following a report made for the JRC – European Commission on seasonal impacts of climate change on electricity production, our energy analyst Jacques DESPRES was contacted by SEB bank to contribute to the bi-monthly “The Green Bond report”. Thus, he wrote the article “Rethinking sustainable investment”, based on simulations into the POLES-Enerdata model
Europe's climate credentials sullied by coal import binge
Reuters has written this column to point the surge in coal use in Europe in 2022 resulting from the energy crisis. Enerdata’s yearbook is the source demonstrating how Europe and the US led the reduction in coal consumption and CO2 emissions until 2021.
Energy Crisis: Opportunity or threat for the EU’s energy transition?
Morgan Crenes, Head of Research & Innovation at Enerdata, has written, together with the EBF team, an executive brief facilitating banks, their customers but also other stakeholders in setting their strategies and targets, as it explores how the EU’s energy transition could be impacted by the recent crises in the short term, through the lens of the latest trends in fossil fuel consumption, while also examining possible alternatives in the long term.
Europe ramps up development of local EV battery sector in race to zero emissions
Baptiste Possémé, CleanTech Senior Consutlant at Enerdata, has been interviewed by Sophie Douez for the writing of a “big picture” regarding the fast-growing EV battery market in Europe. Baptiste provided information regarding the supply chain battery players and investments in innovation. Download the article (PDF)
US vs. China: How the world's two biggest emitters stack up on climate
CNN has written an article to analyse the evolution of several criteria of the two biggest GHG emitters: US and China, regarding the climate transition. The journalists used Enerdata’s figures to compare the emissions per capita, the energy mix and power production from wind and solar.
Saving energy in residential buildings: the role of energy pricing
A zero-carbon society requires dramatic change everywhere including in buildings, a large and politically sensitive sector. Technical possibilities exist but implementation is slow. Policies include many hard-to-evaluate regulations and may suffer from rebound mechanisms. We use dynamic econometric analysis of European macro data for the period 1990–2018 to systematically examine the importance of changes in energy prices and income on residential energy demand. We find a long-run price elasticity of −0.5. The total long-run income elasticity is around 0.9, but if we control for the increase in income that goes towards larger homes and other factors, the income elasticity is 0.2. These findings have practical implications for climate policy and the EU buildings and energy policy framework. Writers: Jens Ewald, Thomas Sterner, Eoin Ó Broin & Érika Mata
Directive on energy efficiency (recast)
The ODYSSEE-MURE project, its database and its facilities, are cited 8 times in the proposal for the Energy Efficiency Directive (recast) made by the European Parliament and the Council on Energy Efficiency. The ODYSSEE-MURE is a European project to benchmark the energy efficiency performance of EU member countries, for which Enerdata has developed and maintained data tools to help users, including policymakers and energy economists, analyse energy efficiency changes and improvements each country.
What China's plan for net-zero emissions by 2060 means for the climate
The Guardian has written this article to explain how China could reach net-zero emissions although the country is a huge polluter, thanks to the fact it leads the world in the clean technologies that could make this feasible. Enerdata’s yearbook is the source to illustrate that China burns half the world’s coal.
