How does a carbon-intensive energy hub with limited renewable energy resources go about decarbonizing?
The decarbonization plans of Singapore are worth paying attention to both because of the city’s ability to set decarbonizataion trends in the region, and its global role in the shipping industry. In this blog, we take a look at the country’s options. Climate change has created unprecedented challenges for countries…
CATF Consultation for the Revision of the European Commission’s TEN-T Regulation
With the Green Deal and its ambitious climate goals, the EU needs to adapt the TEN-T Regulation to ensure that the transport sector, currently representing almost a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions, can transition to zero-emissions mobility.
CATF Experts on the IEA’s Net-Zero by 2050 Report
The IEA released a special report on Tuesday that charts the course for the global energy sector to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, marking “an historic inflection point in the global climate solutions debate,” according to Clean Air Task Force Executive Director Armond Cohen, whose full statement you can…
European Parliament Clarifies Position on Hydrogen Strategy
CATF welcomes the adoption this afternoon by the European Parliament of its own-initiative report on the Hydrogen Strategy. The European Commission unveiled its strategy on 8 July 2020. Since hydrogen has a key role to play as a decarbonisation enabler for hard-to-electrify sectors, the Commission strategy aims to scale up…
Zero-Carbon Fuels and Marine Shipping: Both a Will and a Way?
The marine shipping sector consumes around 10 quadrillion Btu of fuel and emits one billion metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. That’s more than all of Germany’s emissions, more than all of Saudi Arabia’s emissions, and roughly equal to the emissions from all passenger vehicles in the United States….
Strong Policy Needed to Decarbonize the Industrial Cluster in Europe’s Largest Port
With the increasing global urgency to combat climate change, the Port of Rotterdam must successfully decarbonize its port and industrial cluster operations while continuing to thrive in a competitive market. As part of this effort, the H-vision Project plans to curb carbon emissions by producing and adopting blue hydrogen as…
Clean Hydrogen for $1.50/kg Could Promote Significant Decarbonization. What Will It Take to Get There with Renewable Electricity?
Hydrogen produced for $1.50/kg could be the most competitive decarbonization option for a significant fraction of global energy demand. What will it take to get to that cost point for clean hydrogen produced from renewable electricity? Likely it will require monumental improvements in technology if we use only surplus renewable…
CATF Supports U.S. NDC, Setting Stage for Actions to Reduce Methane Emissions and Invest in Zero-Carbon Technologies
BOSTON – Clean Air Task Force supports the newly unveiled U.S. Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to cut greenhouse emissions by 50 to 52% by 2030, an “appropriately ambitious goal that will boost the American economy – and whose success will hinge on aggressive regulatory actions to U.S. methane and carbon emissions as well as significantly increased federal funding for carbon-free technologies,”…
