Transforming the Ulaanbaatar Heating Sector – Technology options for decarbonisation
Publication date 11 Oct 2022

This study aims to assess available technologies to decarbonise the heating supply of Ulaanbaatar. Based on already existing research identifying decarbonisation technology portfolios heavily reliant on electrification, we investigate which additional novel heating technologies with lower electricity consumption are available for extreme cold climates, and what implications those technologies would have on the Ulaanbaatar power sector. In doing so, we aim to clarify whether high electricity intensive heating technologies with lower capital costs would be more economically beneficial compared to lower electricity-intensive heating technologies with higher capital costs. We do so through the development of three scenarios representing different technology portfolios in 2050, for which we derive electricity consumption and cost estimates.

The climate and health double dividend
Publication date 30 May 2022

An early phase out of coal plants around the world could help avoid over 14.5 million premature deaths from air pollution over the next three decades, delivering an economic benefit of $16.3 trillion. Our new analysis shows the enormous scale of public health benefits of urgently phasing out operating and planned coal plants in 24 countries, covering over 90% of the global fleet. The twin climate and health impacts are shown in an interactive online tool which pinpoints their source in different countries, and allows users to adjust the time horizon, consider different scenarios, and explore right down to the level of individual units.

Working Paper: Transition risks for Argentina’s agricultural sector
Publication date 05 Nov 2021

The Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) and NewClimate analyse the transition risks faced by Argentina’s export-oriented agriculture sector in the context of increasingly carbon-constrained commodity trade. The report suggests that Argentina should find ways of reconciling plans to promote its agri-export model with its stated climate ambition. By exploring and implementing mitigation options that help the sector reduce its emission intensity, Argentina can strengthen its position as a key exporter of agriculture commodities on world markets. Main findings: Argentina’s export...
