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.
