Super-critical because targeting the two areas - #heating and #mobility that we are stalled on in UK #netzero delivery.
Chart shows top two sectors now #transport (navy) and #buildings (heat - pink) - both flat-lined (bar pandemic effects). (2/5)
This work models costs / benefits from bottom-up for 6 UK cities to #decarbonise in 2 scenarios:
- use same #lowcarbon measures everywhere
- tailor to local needs / opportunities

And adds strategic analysis of current situation for #delivery (3/5)

Our take on the @EU_Commission’s second part of the #Fitfor55 package aimed at re-designing the EU’s internal #gasmarket rules and governing a future European #hydrogen pipeline network. 1/12
1️⃣ gas market: The proposed revisions to the internal gas market rules do not address that Europe’s #climatetargets imply a rapidly shrinking market for #fossilgas use already this decade. 2/12
The need to scale down #fossilgas and replacement by #electrification and only partially by non-fossil gases must become the underlying narrative of the gas market rules. Here is why! 3/12

Ancient Coin of the Day: Today’s thread is about Trajan’s building projects as commemorated on coins, starting with a sestertius of the Circus Maximus ca. AD 103-111. #ACOTD #Trajan #Buildings

Image: RIC 2 Trajan 571; Münzkabinett Wien (RÖ 8287). Link - numismatics.org/ocre/id/ric.2.… ImageImage
While he is perhaps better known for the military aspects of his reign, it cannot be disputed that Trajan was also keenly interested in building work and infrastructure, with many of his works commemorated on the coins that he issued.
The Obverse shows a laureate Trajan, with the detailed Legend IMP CAES NERVAE TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P COS V P P – ‘For Emperor Caesar Nerva Trajan Augustus, Germanicus, Dacicus, Pontifex Maximus, with Tribunician Power, Consul for the fifth time, Father of the Fatherland’. Image

👏@IEA for publishing such a great work on #innovation #energy #climate
Here are my 6 takeways from this 400p document #Thread
Full @IEA document here 👉iea.org/reports/energy…
1. We can already cut global emissions by 55% with already commercially available technologies (i.e. early adoption + mature). But we also need to further develop technologies to get to #NetZero
2. Technologies for #buildings renovation and ligh-duty #transport are already largely there

The burdens of #ClimateChange change are disproportionately placed on people in poverty

@CecilCorbinMark
@aceee #SummerStudy20

Which includes #buildings
For instance, as @CecilCorbinMark, demonstrates this point with:

Air Conditioning during all time high heat waves.

People in poverty may be inequitably burdened by:
Experiencing a heat wave bc their home does not have an air conditioning unit.

Heat waves can cause:
heat exhaustion,
triggering asthma,
organ damage

In elderly populations, this can result in death.

1/Today, we launch a new project: defining & analysing a series of global & country-level #ParisAgreement-compatible #decarbonisation benchmarks, across four major sectors: #Power, #Transport, #Industry, #Buildings, each w benchmarks for several indicators bit.ly/CAT_PSR1 Image
2/ We've derived 2030 & 2050 sectoral benchmarks for seven countries: #Brazil, #China, #EU, #India, #Indonesia, #SouthAfrica, the #US, taking into account each country's technical, infrastructure & economic circumstances #decarbonisation. Summary report: bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum
3/ Our benchmarks are at a level of “highest plausible ambition" - technically, economically feasible, consider existing infrastructure, ensure they push the boundaries on all levels, & increase our chances of meeting the #ParisAgreement #1o5C limit bit.ly/CAT_PSRsum

Thread (1/9) Proud of our new report! So many messages distilled for you, by our team @EU_ScienceHub and from a polyphony of #EnergyScenarios. Let the deeper understanding of it mature now. Enjoy its taste !
ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/publica… #EUGreenDeal
(2/9) Scenarios achieving 50-56% CO2 reduction by 2030 see total #coal use reduce by 70%, #oil by 25-50% and #naturalgas by up to 25%. The use of total #biomass ranges from limited growth to an increase of up to 60%. All compared to 2017.
(3/9) The growth of #wind power generation varies between a factor of 1.5 and 3.5 and the growth of #solar power between 1.5 and 4.5. Between 2017 and 2030.
#Hydrogen and #CCUS emerges in some but not all scenarios.
