New study shows lack of government support for renewable energy communities

Although EU law gives all citizens in Europe the right to participate in a renewable energy community, there is a lack of national support schemes for the development of such communities, a new study shows.

CICERO is studying greenhouse gas emissions from the food and land-use systems

As part of the project NorthWesternPaths, CICERO researchers are studying how changes in diet, food waste, agriculture and forestry could help reduce Norway’s greenhouse gas emissions.

CICERO researchers publish new book on support schemes for clean energy

CICERO researchers Elin Lerum Boasson and Merethe Dotterud Leiren have edited a new book about support schemes for renewable energy, which analyses and compares policies to promote the development of renewables in six European countries.

CICERO to study the development of clean energy communities in Norway

As part of a new EU-funded project, CICERO will study the conditions for community energy in Norway and Europe. Community energy has been identified by the EU as an important pathway to promote the energy transition towards a low-carbon society.

UPSCALE - Oppskalering av bærekraftig deling ved hjelp av offentlige biblioteker

This project addresses how public libraries can be used as hubs for an upscaling of collaborative consumption contributing to the transformation to a low emission society.

GRACE - Technical documentation

The model for Global Responses to Anthropogenic Change in the Environment (GRACE) is a multi-sector, multi-regional, recursively dynamic global computable general equilibrium model (CGE) written in GAMS and based on GTAP database. The initial version of the model was developed at CICERO by Aaheim and Rive (2005) for long-term economic analysis of climate change impacts and greenhouse gas abatement policy. It was designed to allow for additional modules for analysis, including emissions permit trading and climate impacts on economic sectors. Coupled with an atmospheric model, the model can also be used for integrated assessment modelling of the climate and economy. Since then several versions have been developed by updating data and certain modules for various studies. Go back to the general introduction.
