This report finds that the EU’s demand for gas is set to decline significantly in line with climate targets, eliminating the need to expand supply from new fields or infrastructure. In the report the authors model how EU’s gas demand matches future supply in various forecasted scenarios.
A new report finds that the EU’s demand for gas is set to decline significantly in line with climate targets, eliminating the need to expand supply from new fields or infrastructure. In the report, On Thin Ice, the authors model how EU’s gas demand matches future supply in various forecasted scenarios.
Not only does this announcement fly in the face of all the scientific evidence telling us we must go further and faster to secure a liveable planet, it also ignores polling evidence that voters want to see real action on green investment. The Labour Party must uphold their pledge to take serious action on climate change.
This amicus curiae, submitted to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, outlines the duty of States to phase out fossil fuel production and use in order to comply with the 1.5°C temperature limit.
Illustration by Pawel Kuczynski Many of the largest CCS projects in the world overpromise and under-deliver, operating far below capacity. An analysis by OCI of six of the leading CCS plants in the US, Australia, and the Middle East reveals that they are all either operating significantly below capacity, ranging from an estimated 10 to … Read More
Governments have spent over $20 billion – and have approved up to $200 billion more – of public money on carbon capture and storage (CCS), providing a lifeline for the fossil fuel industry. Almost 80% of operating carbon capture capacity globally sends captured CO2 to produce more oil via Enhanced Oil Recovery, while many of the world’s largest CCS projects overpromise and underdeliver.
Oil and gas companies, and some governments, are more interested in looking like they’re acting on climate change than actually acting. They spend billions on smoke and mirrors such as “carbon capture and storage,” “certified gas,” ammonia co-firing, and hydrogen when in reality, they are trying to build escape hatches to continue their dirty business as usual.
A new report commissioned by Oil Change International attempts to map out the potential influence that oil and gas interests may have on other influential stakeholders in Norway.
This is the first factsheet in a forthcoming series that details why fossil gas is dangerous for our planet and our communities in Africa, and how gas acts as a barrier to the energy transition we need for a safe, secure and healthy future.
