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,”…
Biden Administration Proposes Kick-Starting Hydrogen. That’s Good News for Climate and for Jobs.
Emission reductions across different sectors of the economy will not follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Hydrogen has been identified as a key solution that reduces carbon emissions for sectors where electrification and other measures are not sufficient. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan includes 15 hydrogen projects aimed to decarbonize a range of industrial applications in distressed communities and could create at least 18,000 jobs in 2025. This is very good news for…
Accelerating Decarbonization with Zero-Carbon Fuels
Conventional fuels provide more than 80% of global end-use energy today – accounting for a significant piece of our global carbon emissions. Zero-carbon fuels like hydrogen (“H2”) and ammonia (“NH3”) are energy carriers that emit no carbon dioxide when consumed, and could replace conventional fuels in some parts of heavy…
Updated CATF comments on the proposals for the revision of the TEN-E Regulation
CATF strongly supports the EU’s ambition to become climate neutral by 2050 and welcomes the revision of the TEN-E regulation to ensure compatibility with climate neutrality. Besides energy security, connection, and affordability, the TEN-E revision offers key opportunities to ensure that the energy infrastructure is not only adapted for decarbonisation…
CATF Comments on Inception Impact Assessment for Revision of the TEN-T Regulation
CATF appreciates the opportunity to provide the following comments to the Commission on the Inception Impact Assessment (IIA) for the Revision of Regulation on Union Guidelines for the development of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T).
CATF Comments on the Inception Impact Assessment for Amendment of the EU ETS
CATF applauds the European Commission for its plans to increase the ambition of the EU’s 2030 climate goals to ensure carbon neutrality by mid-century. CATF also commends the European Commission for pursuing policy innovation on the road to net-zero emissions by mid-century. CATF is grateful for the opportunity to provide…
A New Study on Electric Reliability under Deep Decarbonization in New England
A new study, carried out by the Energy Futures Initiative (EFI) and Energy and Environmental Economics (E3), is a thoughtful and rigorous analysis of what could be required to achieve net-zero economy-wide GHG emissions in New England, emphasizing the need to substantially expand the region’s electric sector, the importance of…
