March kicked off with a 5-day online ENGAGE project meeting, where partners had the chance to review the progress and plan next steps.
Currently the ENGAGE consortium is working on new mitigation scenarios that will feed the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC. An assessment of 1.5°C and 2°C scenarios is in progress, focusing on the interactions of early vs. late action and the effects of temperature overshooting on decarbonization pathways.
So far, GEM-E3 model, part of the Integrated Assessment Modelling community of the IPCC, has provided simulations for different climate stabilization scenarios, focusing on the analysis of macroeconomic and employment effects.
Acting as the EU national team of the consortium, E3-Modelling is now conducting research on the mid-century strategies of big emitters under different equity principles, to be delivered later in 2022, along with an updated EU Low-carbon Roadmap to inform the UNFCCC 2023 Global stocktake.
