Research on Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs), IPCC emissions scenario ensembles, and the appropriate use of modelling to guide climate policy and decision making, using a variety of disciplinary approaches and methods.

Ida Sognnæs holds a PhD from the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, University of Cambridge (2020), an MA in Energy and Resources, University of California, Berkeley (2014), an MSc in Applied Mathematics and Physics, Norwegian University of Technology and Science (NTNU) (2011), and a BSc in Political Science, NTNU (2012). She has also been a visiting researcher at the University of Oxford, Institute for New Economic Thinking (2019).

Ida’s current research focuses on the use of IPCC emissions scenarios to obtain robust insights on climate mitigation, the identification of key uncertainties, assumptions, and biases, and the use of emissions scenarios by policy makers, energy companies, and the financial sector. She also works on the history of IAMs, the economics of climate change, technological change forecasting, decision making under uncertainty, ethical and political dimensions of modelling for policy, and science policy. Ida uses mixed quantitative and qualitative methods in her research.

Ida currently leads the Norwegian Research Council funded project 'StressTest: Using scenarios to assess climate risk in the financial sector'. She led the first global modelling run in the EU Horizon 2020 funded project 'PARIS REINFORCE'.

  • Stor usikkerhet rundt hvilken temperaturstigning vi er på vei mot Under klimatoppmøtet i Glasgow var det stor oppmerksomhet om klimaeffekten av nye løfter om utslippskutt. En ny analyse ledet av CICERO viser at slike beregninger er mer usikre enn ofte antatt.
  • Carbon Capture and Storage is necessary to keep global warming below 2°C Scenarios indicate that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is critical to meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to ‘well below 2°C’. But, at what scale?
  • Oljeproduksjon og klimamål Det eneste vi virkelig vet når det gjelder utslipp og klima er at alt henger sammen – jo mer olje og gass i dag eller i nær fremtid, jo mer press blir det på å redusere utslipp i andre sektorer både i nær fremtid og på lengre sikt.
  • Ingen vei utenom karbonfangst og -lagring? Det finnes ingen magisk enkeltløsning hvis vi skal nå målene fra Parisavtalen. Vi må kutte utslippene og legge om energisystemet, og vi må gjøre det raskt. Men i tillegg vil vi nok trenge karbonfangst og -lagring.
