Missed Chances on Energy Security

The EU-U.S. Summit on 30 April 2007 passed a statement on energy security, efficiency, and climate change that is strong on rhetoric but weak on substance. Sascha Müller-Kraenner, Director of the Europe program at the Nature Conservancy and Senior Policy Advisor to Ecologic Institute, provides some critical commentary on the substance of the summit.

Nach wie vor weltweit steigende CO2-Emissionen

Since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, climate protection and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are binding targets for many countries. However, total global emissions have not reached intended targets, indicated by the continued increase in CO2, which is the most significant greenhouse gas. In 2006 total global CO2 emissions reached 29 Billion tonnes, representing a 2.6% increase over the preceding year and an increase of nearly a third from 1990. In his report, Dr. Hans-Joachim Ziesing, Senior Policy Advisor at Ecologic, presents the development of emissions in the EU and proposes a common implementation of climate protection targets to insure the EU's leading role in climate protection.

Allocation of Greenhouse Gas Allowances in the United States – A Northeastern Example

The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) initiated the first regional greenhouse gas emissions trading system in the United States. This cap-and-trade program will begin on 1 January 2009 and will include sources from the electricity generating sector. The article by Camilla Bausch and Sandra Cavalieri analyses the implementation design of the RGGI trading scheme and its significance for the evolution of the international carbon market. Read more

Smart Grids – Future Electricity Grids in a Transatlantic Learning Center at the CSD 15

March 2007 to May 2007
Combinations of electrical, information and communication technologies allow for Smart Grids to provide dynamic efficiency for power generation, transmission and distribution. Ecologic took the lead in preparing a Learning Centre on the current state and potential of Smart Grids at the 15th Session of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD 15). The course highlighted the benefits of smart grids for an increased use of variable renewable power sources, while enhancing energy security, stabilising electricity grids and reducing the need for reserve capacity, leading to economic benefits and reduced carbon dioxide emission.Read more

Policy Trends in Germany and European Union

TimeLoc
24 February 2007
Tokyo
Japan

Japan finds herself at a cross-road concerning its position and role in international climate protection policy. Economically and strategically caught between China and the United States - competing as well as cooperating with both - a balance between climate change mitigation and adaptation needs to be found. R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic was invited to the International Symposium "Future International Framework on Climate Change (Post-Kyoto) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)" to speak about and explain "Policy Trends in Germany and the European Union".Read more
