Climate Change Adaptation

20 October 2015 - ClimasCOPe - By : Vivian DEPOUES, PhD

Heading towards the 2015 Paris international Climate Conference (COP21), I4CE, in partnership with ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, releases ClimasCOPe # 5 on climate change adaptation

ClimasCOPe # 5 focuses on the place of climate change adaptation in the climate action. After an editorial titled « COP 21: a new approach and the launch of a process to address climate change adaptation » written by A. Leseur and V. Dépoues, I4CE experts analyze the issue of adapting to climate change by taking ownership of the issues and removing barriers to implementations. Then, ClimasCOPe #5 presents the recent developments of in international climate negotiations (the climate negotiations before the COP21, a new Sustainable Development Agenda for 2015-2030, New York Climate week, ministerial meetings and the annual meetings of the World Bank and IMF); to end it up with four key initiatives related to climate change adaptation.

    Green industry: the game is kicking off

    Faced with international competition exacerbated by the US Inflation Reduction Act, Team Europe (and longtime team member, France) is preparing its response. The team’s tactics tackle two challenges: greening existing industrial sectors such as steel or cement, and industrialising the production of green goods, particularly those cleantechs that will make the transition a reality, such as heat pumps or electrolysers. To meet the first challenge, the French government has put 5 to 10 billion euros of public money on the table to decarbonise the most polluting production sites, in return for private investment. But has the extent of the industrial investment needs been properly assessed?

    Investments to decarbonise heavy industry in France: what, how much and when?

    Industry: relocation and decarbonisation at the heart of the debate. The recent succession of crises (health, energy, geopolitical) and increased international competition have prompted France to look for ways to strengthen its industrial and energy sovereignty. It faces this challenge in addition to the challenge of decarbonising its industry. In this context, France and Europe are developing industrial policies with two objectives – relocation and decarbonisation – and with new tools such as the France 2030 plan and the Net Zero Industry Act at the European level. These policies target both ‘historical’ industries, such as steel and cement, and new clean technologies, from solar to batteries.

    The Net-Zero Industry Act: Designing Europe’s launchpad for a cleantech investment plan

    As the world enters a new era of cleantech competition, policymakers must confront two key policy questions – regulation and investment. The Net Zero Industry Act is Europe’s response to the former. Yet key concerns around permitting, sectoral targets and the scope of the Act will need to be addressed if it is to be effective, argue Thomas Pellerin-Carlin and Ciarán Humphreys in this blog post.
