New FEEM Press volume on the Bruegel-FEEM Euro-Mediterranean Energy Talks

The current energy situation in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean countries is characterised by a rapid increase of energy demand, low energy efficiency and low domestic energy prices. This volume by D. Favoino (Bruegel) and S. Tagliapietra (FEEM) summarizes the key results of a brainstorming workshop recently organized by FEEM and Bruegel to look at the current situation and to investigate how to formulate a new Euro-Mediterranean energy cooperation.

FEEM researcher Elena Verdolini authors article published in Risk Analysis

Expert elicitations are frequently used to characterize future technology outcomes. However, many argue that the usefulness of this methodology is limited, because estimates across studies are not easily comparable; choices in survey design and expert selection may bias results; and over-confidence is a persistent problem. The article by G.F. Nemet, L. Diaz Anadon and E. Verdolini compares data from 16 elicitations, involving 169 experts, on the 2030 costs of 5 energy technologies to provide quantitative evidence of how survey and expert characteristics affect experts’ estimates.

FEEM publishes in Nature Climate Change

The Paris Agreement culminates a six-year transition towards an international climate policy architecture based on parties submitting national pledges. How should these different contributions be assessed and compared? This is the focus of the article “Economic tools to promote transparency and comparability in the Paris Agreement” published online by the journal Nature Climate Change. The article is authored by FEEM researchers Lara Aleluia Reis, Carlo Carraro and Massimo Tavoni, in collaboration with leading international researchers.

How to calculate risk premium in case of climate change damage

This FEEM Working Paper by A. Markandya, E. De Cian, L. Drouet, J. M. Polanco-Martìnez and F. Bosello proposes a methodology to calculate risk premium in case of climate change damage.
In the presence of uncertainty about climate change damages, are people satisfied to be protected against the "average" outcomes? We show that in fact this is not the case. The presence of risk aversion increases the perceived damage above the average one. We quantify accordingly this "addition" and we re-analyse the decision to mitigate and to adapt in the light of this correction".

Do renewables need fossil fuel technologies?

Washington Post and Houston Chronicle articles cite the NBER and FEEM working paper “Bridging the Gap: Do Fast Reacting Fossil Technologies Facilitate Renewable Energy Diffusion?”. The paper, co-authored by FEEM researcher Elena Verdolini with Francesco Vona (OFCE Sciences-Po and SKEMA Business School) and David Popp (Syracuse University and NBER),  discusses the role of fossil-based power generation technologies in supporting renewable energy investments.

Advances and slowdowns in carbon capture and storage technology development

This FEEM Working Paper by A. D'Aprile explores the main progress and deadlocks of Carbon Capture and Storage technology development in recent years, including economic constraints, regulation complexity, political and environmental factors.
CCS technology still struggles to emerge as a sound low-carbon choice for governments and investors. Post-COP21 national and international efforts, as well as local policies and context, will play an increasingly critical role in the next phase of CCS deployment

The water abstraction license regime in Italy: a case for reform?

In this FEEM Working Paper, S. Santato, J. Mysiak, and C. Dionisio Pérez-Blanco offer insights that can inform reform of water abstractions in the Po River Basin District and elsewhere in Italy and in Europe.
"A more flexible water abstraction licence regime in Italy is to be recommended, on account of the observed and expected decline in water availability, amplified climate variability, population growth and economic development, and as a means of regulating minimum environmental flows."

Alternative approaches for rating INDCs: a comparative analysis

In this FEEM Working Paper, M. Davide and P. Vesco aim at analysing the INDCs submitted by Parties in the context of the Paris talks.
"Our analysis highlights that beyond effectiveness in terms of emission reduction, other dimensions such as coherence and fairness are important for the evaluation of the INDCs and the Paris Agreement."
