  • Ecofys assists RVO in Borssele wind resource assessment

    28/08/2015
    Ecofys has assessed the offshore wind climate for the Borssele offshore wind farm zone in the Dutch North Sea. Combining offshore wind measurements with mesoscale model data, Ecofys found all of the analysed trends reasonable for an offshore site and consistent across modelled heights from 10 to 150 m. The calculated mean wind speed at 100 m at the wind farm zone centre was found to be 9.6 ± 0.5 m...
  • Australia set to overshoot its 2030 climate target by large margin

    27/08/2015
    Without further policies, Australia’s emissions are set to increase substantially - around 27% above 2005 levels by 2030, according to an assessment by an international research analysis, the Climate Action Tracker (CAT). As its contribution towards the Paris Climate Agreement, Australia has put forward an emissions reduction target of 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2030. The CAT has calculated this...
  • Methodology to align corporate greenhouse-gas emissions with 2°C goal published in Nature Climate Change

    24/08/2015
    Today, a paper written by Ecofys with fellow experts is published in Nature Climate Change and presents a methodology to set consistent corporate targets that keep corporate greenhouse-gas emissions within a specific carbon budget and to keep global warming below 2°C goal. The paper introduces the Sectoral Decarbonization Approach that derives carbon intensity pathways for companies based on sect...
  • Private sector initiatives: Upscaled action could deliver up to 500 Mt CO2e of emissions savings by 2020

    24/08/2015
    The analysis of five cooperative initiatives involving business to deliver greenhouse gas emission reductions reveals that these initiatives have the ability to jointly realise 200 megatonnes (Mt) of CO2e reductions in 2020. If their current level of ambition is raised, the initiatives could achieve up to 500 MtCO2e of emission reductions, while simultaneously generating considerable economic and ...
