Lessons Learned on Green Stimulus: Case Studies from the Global Financial Crisis

Today’s policymakers designing economic stimulus packages to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic can draw lessons from the most recent point of comparison, the global financial crisis. This paper gives a global overview of the green stimulus announced in 2008 and 2009 and then provides case studies of four of the economies that spent the most on green measures: the United States, South Korea, China, and the European Union.

A proposal for a regulatory framework for hydrogen guarantees of origin

Energy guarantees of origin (GOO) will be an essential instrument in the context of the Commission’s forthcoming legislative proposals on the regulatory framework for facilitating the emerging low and renewable carbon hydrogen market and a concomitant substantial decrease in GHG emissions.

SPARK! Partnering to electrify in Europe

Our SPARK! report outlines Uber’s commitment to electrifying ride-hailing in Europe and how we hope to partner with industry and policymakers to help drivers move to fully electric vehicles (EVs).

State of Climate Action: Assessing Progress toward 2030 and 2050

Experience has shown that transformative change can happen at an exponential, non-linear rate. Systemic changes that once seemed impossible have ultimately been achieved, such as technological advances with cars, phones and computers. A rapid transition to a zero-carbon future offers the same opportunity — but only with smart and proactive investments in key sectors.

Adaptation Principles : A Guide for Designing Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience

Effective action on resilience and climate change adaptation can be a complex task—requiring coordinated efforts from the highest levels of government to individual households and firms.

Vision or Division?

A rapid decarbonisation of electricity generation will be essential to limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

Cost-Effective Decarbonisation Study

The aim of this study is therefore firstly to review existing policies to consider whether they have achieved the 'triangle' of energy objectives. This is the focus of chapters two, three and four.
Secondly, the core of this study is to review the available evidence that the Commission, the Parliament and the Member States will need to take into account in reaching decisions on this 'optimal equilateral triangle' approach.

Resource Assessment for Hydrogen Production

The technical potential of hydrogen production from fossil, nuclear, and renewable energy resources is presented. Updated maps describe the geographical distribution of hydrogen production potential from renewable energy resources. The results conclude that the technical resource availability of domestic energy resources is sufficient to meet an additional 10 MMT of hydrogen demand in 2040, without placing significant pressure on existing resources.

Green hydrogen : bridging the energy transition in Africa and Europe

In 2015, the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) propelled the world into fast track mode towards achieving the sustainability goals. Three decades from now, the global energy landscape will look completely different to today. With the standard of living improving, there is a greater use of devices and services powered by a diversity of energy sources. Superimposed on this diversity, there is a growing universal effort to achieve a rapid decarbonisation of the economy while making sure that no one is left behind, as is addressed in SDG 7.
