Paris Reinforce: Central Asia and Caspian region Stakeholder Discussion Series #2

Second edition of the Paris Reinforce workshop with focus on Central Asian and Caspian (CAC) region.

Date: March 2, 2021, 10:00 am Topic: Energy & Climate

In 2019, a new 3-year research project called Paris Reinforce was launched, funded by the European Commission and encompassing 17 partners from within Europe and across the world. The project’s aim is to understand the potential greenhouse gas emission reduction pathways consistent with the landmark Paris Agreement, in several major economies across the globe.

A key branch of modelling is focussed upon the Central Asian and Caspian (CAC) region, and a fundamental element is engagement with key stakeholders. On 9th December, the project held a first stakeholder-workshop focussing upon the region. This second workshop will provide an opportunity for modellers and stakeholders to progress further in their dialogue around the energy and climate evolutions of the CAC region and countries.

Translation into Russian will be provided.

This event is open only to select experts and Bruegel’s Membership.

China has a grand carbon neutrality target but where is the plan?

China’s new long-term targets, to reach peak emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, are yet to be matched with a consistent short-term action plan.

Navigating through hydrogen

Policymakers must address the need to displace carbon-intensive hydrogen with low-carbon hydrogen, and incentivise the uptake of hydrogen as a means to decarbonise sectors with hard-to-reduce emissions.

Policy Contribution

A whole-economy carbon price for Europe and how to get there

Putting carbon pricing at the centre of the EU climate policy architecture would provide major benefits. Obtaining these benefits requires a uniform, credible and durable carbon price – the economic first-best solution, however, several preconditions required to attain this solution are not yet met. This paper proposes a sequenced approach to ensure convergence of the policy mix on the first-best in the long run.

Carbon price floors: an addition to the European Green Deal arsenal

As the European Union sets out a more ambitious climate policy, carbon price floors provide an opportunity to place greater emphasis on altering expectations, so that market agents anticipate today higher future pay-offs from low-carbon investment.

Carbon border adjustment in the United States: not easy, but not impossible either

President Biden has promised to implement a levy on carbon-intensive imports, albeit without a federal domestic carbon price. The measure faces a number of difficulties, but could feasibly be implemented. The route chosen by the US will have important implications for the EU's own plans.
