Activities and Impacts
All the activities of NEGEM are interconnected and the workplan is organized in two phases:
Assessment of impacts and potential
In this phase the project screens NETPs against several criteria:
- technological parameters
- planetary and regional boundaries costs
- opportunities and risks social acceptance
- political feasibility
Framework for development pathways
Quantification of the potential value and option value of negative emissions offsetting residual emissions. Testing market-based implementation opportunities in three case studies: power generation with wood pellets, reforestation/afforestation of arid areas, combined heat and power with CCS using secondary biomass sources.
Development of an analytical framework for how to create, select and promote NETPs-including pathways to reach the Paris Agreement. Creation of open access NEGEM datasets and feeding into relevant international databases, to ensure the best use of new data on NETPs.
