No simple answer to carbon complexity

“These are the times that try men’s soul” wrote Thomas Paine in his famous pamphlet American Crisis in the heat of the American Revolution. These words well describe the present time too – in their broadest meaning. The political systems in the western world are under unprecedented pressure not witnessed since the dark times of […]

Assessing the impacts of setting CO2 emission targets on truck manufacturers: A model implementation and application for the EU

The European Commission introduced in 2018, for the first time, CO2emission standards for truck manufacturers, to incite additional reduction in the road transport CO2 emissions; trucks represent the second major contributor to CO2 emissions in the EU road transport. This paper presents a model based analysis which simulates the implementation of such targets in an energy economic […]

INNOPATHS holds Stakeholder Event: “Towards carbon neutrality, the perspective of investors”

On the 15th of May 2019, INNOPATHS held a large stakeholder event hosted by E3-Modelling in Athens, designed to examine the investment opportunities emerging from the transition towards a low- or zero-carbon economy. The INNOPATHS project aims to understand the challenges of decarbonisation and the innovation needed to address them and present a detailed assessment […]

D 1.2 Online Technology Matrix Tool (TMT) and Technology and Uncertainties Report

Summary The Technology Matrix Tool (TMT) developed in the INNOPATHS project (D1.1. and D1.2) has been designed to provide academics, key stakeholders, and policy makers with an integrated tool for analyzing and synthesizing energy technologies relevant for the transition to a low-carbon system. The TMT contains current and future estimated costs on selected technologies from […]

D 2.1 Report on workshops for case studies for sectoral and national innovation systems

Summary “Report on workshops for case studies for sectoral and national innovation systems” presents a summary of the stakeholders workshops which were organized by the INNOPATHS project after the first All Partner Meeting of the project. The stakeholder workshops had two main goals. First, to establish dialogue with key representative of stakeholder groups. Second, to […]

D 3.2 Report on online survey of key stakeholders

Summary Part of the process of the INNOPATHS project is the development of a set of scenarios that describe how Europe might transform its energy system towards a low-carbon future. This deliverable describes the development and outcomes of a survey of key stakeholders, that was used to inform the development of the INNOPATHS scenario narratives.

D 3.4 Prototype of Low Carbon Pathways Platform

Summary The aim of the Low Carbon Pathways Platform (LCPP) is to make the newly-developed technologically-detailed decarbonisation pathways for Europe easily accessible to stakeholders from industry, policy and society. This document details the initial prototype of the two interactive visualization tools contained in the LCPP: The first tool is a user-friendly visualization interface that allows […]

D 3.3 Report on first participatory co-design workshop

Summary The INNOPATHS scenario narratives are being developed through a co-design process with relevant stakeholders. Part of this process was a stakeholder workshop, held in Florence in February 2018, to discuss key uncertainties and forces shaping the European energy system. This deliverable provides an overview of the stakeholder workshop.

D 1.4 Socio-Technical Analysis Report

Summary INNOPATHS has a prominent focus on the socio-economic aspect of the low-carbon transition because arguments such as “job killing regulation” and “regressive distributional effects” are often used to undermine the political acceptability of climate policies. Identifying what may have been the distributional impacts of previous energy transitions is a key component of INNOPATHS, since […]
