Global priorities for zero-emission energy innovation

Global priorities for zero-emission energy innovation

To accelerate affordable, zero-emission energy at global scale, additional funds for research and development (R&D) should be allocated across a broad portfolio, according to a Near Zero expert elicitation, with more than half the funds going toward electricity and transportation.

The effect of natural gas supply on U.S. renewable energy and CO2 emissions

The effect of natural gas supply on U.S. renewable energy and CO2 emissions

The increased use of natural gas for electricity would do little to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, according to this study, which combines energy modeling and a Near Zero expert elicitation of U.S. natural gas supply. This is primarily because abundant gas delays deployment of renewable electricity.

Keystone XL: The Climate Impact

Keystone XL: The Climate Impact

Our expert survey suggests that building the Keystone XL (KXL) pipeline would likely increase emissions, even if the production to be transported by KXL were replaced an equivalent amount of heavy crude oils, or were transported by rail instead.

How Low Will Photovoltaic Prices Go?: An Expert Discussion

How Low Will Photovoltaic Prices Go?: An Expert Discussion

Prices for photovolatic modules—the part of solar panels that produce electricity—will continue to fall in line with the long-term trend, according to Near Zero’s expert elicitation. Continuing this trend will require on-going commitments to research.
