New INDC Analysis: The Climate Moment
November 19th, 2015 by Sandy Dechert
A new joint release of Dual Citizen LLC and KnowlEdge Srl, The Climate Moment, presents an extremely comprehensive comparison of climate promises submitted to the United Nations (INDCs) from 12 key countries. The study, released last week, also collates their broader impacts. It anticipates new energy markets, investment risks and opportunities, payback times, avoided costs, and jobs in the lower-carbon economy expected after INDC commitments have been met. You can obtain the proprietary results for a fee at this link.
National markets covered by full model simulations: China, the United States, India, Japan, Germany, South Korea, Canada, Brazil, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and Mexico, with a special section on France. Carbon emissions from these nations represent over 60% of today’s atmospheric releases.
Dual Citizen briefly summarizes each country’s relative strength in terms of its demonstrated policy commitments to reducing emissions, investment and payback period, market opportunities, and jobs and talent. The Climate Moment analysis also presents “push” and “pull” factors in each market.
The Climate Moment uses the modeling results to highlight information for policymakers, investors, and business and to reveal the key differences between the business-as-usual and low-carbon scenarios simulated in the model. It also reveals broader national and subregional dynamics, new investment risks and opportunities, business trends and issues related to local job markets, and availability of skilled talent.
A total of 2,530 indicators and over 100,000 data points inform the study. Each analysis includes a summary of 15 lead indicators, presented from 2015 to the individual INDC target year and to 2040 projections. Customized versions of the study are also available.
