Co-Benefits als interessenbezogene Zusatznutzen der Klimapolitik [German]

In der Klimapoli­tik rück­en Zusatzef­fek­te mög lich­er Poli­tikop­tio­nen zunehmend in den Mit­telpunkt des Inter­ess­es. Die sys­tem­a­tis­che Evaluierung dieser Co-Ben­e­­­fits kann eine wichtige strate­gis­che Lücke schließen und neue strate­gis­che Koali­tio­nen der Klimapoli­tik mit Wirtschafts- und Sozial­res­sorts eröff­nen.

The COBENEFITS Approach of Strategic Co-Benefit Assessments

With its co-ben­e­­fit assess­ment stud­ies, the COBENEFITS project explores how ambi­tious domes­tic renew­able ener­gy and cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion tar­gets will be sup­port­ive of oth­er social and eco­nom­ic per­for­mance tar­gets of gov­ern­ments and min­istries in the part­ner coun­tries. This paper describes the project process, divid­ed in 1. Selec­tion and Pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of Co-Ben­e­­­fits, 2. Ref­er­ence Pol­i­cy Sce­nar­ios […]

Germany–Latin America: Fostering Strategic Alliances for a Global Energy Transition

As Renew­able Ener­gies bring along impor­tant eco­nom­ic and social ben­e­fits, they also open up options for polit­i­cal dia­logue on the basis of glob­al oppor­tu­ni­ty shar­ing. Latin Amer­i­ca is of strate­gic impor­tance for Germany’s inter­na­tion­al sus­tain­able ener­gy poli­cies. Sus­tain­able ener­gy tech­nolo­gies not only have a large poten­tial mar­ket in Latin Amer­i­ca but also offer oppor­tu­ni­ties to address […]

Building New Alliances – Seizing Opportunities – Raising Climate Ambitions in the new energy world of renewables

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with nation­al knowl­edge part­ners in India, South Africa, Viet­nam and Turkey, the project elab­o­rates coun­try-spe­­­cif­ic co-ben­e­­­fits of cli­mate poli­cies, with empha­sis on the oppor­tu­ni­ties pre­sent­ed by renew­able pow­er gen­er­a­tion. With its polit­i­cal part­ners in gov­ern­ment depart­ments and agen­cies, COBENEFITS con­nects the social and eco­nom­ic oppor­tu­ni­ties of renew­able ener­gies to cli­mate change mit­i­ga­tion strate­gies. The […]

Connecting opportunities with interests in the new energy world of renewables

Cli­mate pro­tec­tion mea­sures and strate­gies can deliv­er numer­ous ben­e­fits: from improve­ments in human health to few­er con­flicts over resources, and a reduced depen­den­cy on ener­gy imports. Cli­mate pol­i­cy should place a greater empha­sis on these social and eco­nom­ic effects. […]

Social Benefits of Renewable Energies

Boost­ed by impres­sive tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tion and cost reduc­tions, renew­able ener­gy in a grow­ing num­ber of coun­tries is now pri­mar­i­ly con­sid­ered for its social and eco­nom­ic ben­e­fits. Among these ben­e­fits are oppor­tu­ni­ties for local val­ue cre­ation, for respond­ing to grow­ing ener­gy demands and for reduc­ing con­flicts over scarce water, which are aggra­vat­ed by fos­sil pow­er gen­er­a­tion.

Generating socio-economic values from renewable energies: An overview of questions and assessment methods

Renew­able ener­gies are viewed as a means to rec­on­cile the decar­bon­i­sa­tion of ener­gy sys­tems with sus­tain­able eco­nom­ic devel­op­ment. The list of their pos­si­ble social and eco­nom­ic ben­e­fits is long and many of these claims have an empir­i­cal basis. Despite this, a method for their assess­ment of the capac­i­ty to reflect spe­cif­ic coun­try con­di­tions does not […]
