Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade (SMART)

Start date: Mar 1, 2016, End date: Feb 29, 2020,

This Project aims to address an increasingly pressing global challenge: How to achieve the EU’s development goals and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, while meeting the global target of staying within two degrees global warming and avoid transgressing other planetary boundaries.EU policies must align with sustainable development goals (Article 11 TFEU). The impacts of climate change and glo ...

CONSumer Energy Efficiency Decision Making (CONSEED)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2019,

Consumers do not minimize the total costs of their energy-consuming investments due to a range of market and non-market based failures. This is known as the ‘Energy Efficiency Gap’. To reduce the gap and provide customers with energy consumption information, the EU has mandated that electrical appliances, cars and buildings carry information to indicate their energy consumption.There is a large k ...

 ONGOING 
The Energy Union Framework Strategy laid out on 25 February 2015 has embraced a citizens-oriented energy transition based on a low-carbon transformation of the energy system. The success of the energy transition pillar in the Energy Union will hinge upon the social acceptability of the necessary reforms and on the public engagement in conceptualizing, planning, and implementing low carbon energy t ...

Tool-supported policy-development for regional adaptation (TOPDAD)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2015,

Adaptation in the face of climate change is currently a major challenge, not only in the EU, but all around the world. Climate change has two distinct characters: the slower trends in climatic variables such as sea water temperatur, and the extreme weather phenomena, such as heavy precipitation. The fundamental driver for regional adaptation are regional climate scenarios. Crucial for local societ ...

Arctic Climate Change, Economy and Society (ACCESS)

Start date: Mar 1, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2015,

The Arctic is engaged in a deep climatic evolution. This evolution is quite predictable at short (year) and longer scales (several decades), but it is the decadal intermediate scale that is the most difficult to predict. This is because the natural variability of the system is large and dominant at this scale, and the system is highly non linear due to positive and negative feedback between sea ic ...

ECLIPSE aims to develop and assess effective emission abatement strategies for short-lived climate agents in order to provide sound scientific advice on how to mitigate climate change while improving the quality of air. Current climate policy does not consider a range of short-lived gases and aerosols, and their precursors (including nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds, sulphate, and black ...

European Trans-disciplinary Assessment of Climate Engineering (EuTRACE)

Start date: Jun 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2014,

Growing concern over the difficulty of efforts to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions has recently led to an intense discussion of “Climate Engineering” (CE) - techniques for global-scale intervention to offset global warming. These have great potentials, but also entail serious risks and uncertainties. CE is rapidly gaining scientific, political, commercial, and public attention, and the firs ...

"The collaborative project REACT4C (Reducing Emissions from Aviation by Changing Trajectories for the benefit of Climate) has the objectives: (1) to explore the feasibility of adopting flight altitudes and flight routes that lead to reduced fuel consumption and emissions, and lessen the environmental impact; (2) to estimate the overall global effect of such ATM measures in terms of climate change. ...

"The overall goal of this project is to significantly increase the level of knowledge about the feasibility and implications of novel options (or “geoengineering concepts”), proposed recently to limit climate change. Among these possibilities, a deliberate manipulation of the radiative budget of the Earth may allow a counterbalancing of the effects of continued greenhouse gas emissions on global ...
