The Earth is not Flat, but Circular

post

August 2016 – For the International Spectator, SPA has prepared a dossier on geopolitical consequences of the circular economy and the potential impacts for the Netherlands. Authors Michel Rademakers (HCSS), Dirk-Jan Koch (Min Foreign Affairs), Marjolein de Ridder (Min Foreign Affairs), Arnoud Tukker (CML Leiden University), Arnoud Passenier (Min Environment) and Tjitske IJpma (Min Environment) discuss international, European and Netherlands’ views on the circular economy.

Technical innovations and financial instruments for a circular economy

post

27 October 2015 – In the project ‘Technical innovations and financial instruments for a circular economy’, Trinomics has carried out for the Dutch Ministry of Environment an analysis of three sectors relevant for a circular economy. These are the plastics, electronical equipment and buildings sector. Three questions were examined in particular: 1) Which innovations are needed in this sector for a circular economy, 2) Which governmental instruments can provide the best incentives for such innovations, and 3) What are recommendations for an optimal application of these instruments, including the need for new instruments? The results of this study are used internally by the Ministry.

Beeft de grond onder de voeten van de Nederlandse gasrotonde?

post

26 October, 2015 – Together with TNO and HCSS, Trinomics is organising in 2015 meetings on the future of energy in the Netherlands. A first topic concerned the idea of the Dutch ‘Gas Roundabout’, that should secure income for the Dutch state from gas trade as a compensation for declining income from the depleting Groningen field. It is argued in this paper, that a more comprehensive fossil fuels strategy is needed in the Netherlands, including a strategy that includes build up, but also an exitstrategy for fossils. From the press release:

‘In een vandaag verschenen rapport pleiten TNO, HCSS en Trinomics voor een heldere overheidsvisie op de toekomst van aardgas in ons land. Een dergelijke visie geeft inhoud aan de slogan ‘gas als transitiebrandstof’. Immers, enkel wanneer er een duidelijke einddatum is voor de winning van aardgas in Nederland, de Gasrotonde een op– en afbouwstrategie kent, en helder is dat de resterende gasbaten daadwerkelijk worden besteed aan vergroening kan energietransitie op gedegen en verantwoorde wijze kracht bij worden gezet.’

Climate Development Projects: Lessons Learned from 2007-2013, Inputs for 2014-20

June 2014 – In order to maintain and further improve the effectiveness of EU climate-development projects, DG CLIMA asked for a thorough analysis of previous projects and lessons learnt from past projects in the period 2007-2013. This required an understanding of the state of play of the aid effectiveness agenda, particularly in relation to climate-development projects, international climate-finance negotiations and the new global climate agreement. Main recommendations of the study are that mitigation projects and efforts could be better integrated into national and regional plans; adaptation efforts are more integrated but could be more scaled up. Also, funding needs to be better coordinated to avoid doubling up of efforts and make sure funding goes to areas which may otherwise be neglected. Further, more experience with innovative financing instruments should be gained if commitments to mobilise climate finance made at UN level are to be met, and lessons from a variety of integration tools already implemented by donor agencies should be studied further and disseminated. Finally, recipient ownership of projects to integrate climate objectives into development cooperation should be increased. Ricardo AEA / Triple E Consulting, London/Rotterdam

Energy Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas Emissions —Prospective Scenarios for the Aluminium Industry in the EU and Iceland

post

October 2014 – The aim of this project was to perform an in-depth analysis of the technological innovation that could take place in the aluminium sector in the EU and Iceland and a quantification of their impact on the sector’s energy efficiencies, GHG emissions profile and cost-competitiveness up to 2050. Detailed data on available innovations in the European aluminium industry were collected as well as their costs and benefits to be expected. In addition, a comprehensive database with publicly available data on the European aluminium industry was established in order to assess potential effects of innovations on a plant-by-plant basis in a model that was specifically built for this project. The model assesses in detail the likely implementation of new technologies per plant until 2050. It was found that, for three scenarios examined, in particular an increase in secondary production (‘recycling’), rather than changes in electricity or CO2 prices, can influence emissions in a positive way.
