Conference Planning for 2050: EU experience with long-term climate strategies

Authors: Katarina Trstenjak

Link: https://climatedialogue.eu/event/planning-2050

Description: At the end of 2019, all EU Member States must have a national long-term climate strategy. Around half of them have already undertaken such 2050 planning exercises in recent years to help put them on a path towards drastic emission reductions. In fact, some are already reviewing existing strategies – increasing their ambition in the wake of the Paris Agreement.

The conference “Planning for 2050” took stock of the experience gained in Europe and presented lessons learnt as well as challenges encountered in different Member States – seeking to connect them to the EU’s own overall 2050 vision.

Insight in current state of 2050 modelling in MS-Slovenia

Authors: Katarina Trstenjak

Link: https://climatedialogue.eu/event/second-meeting-technical-dialogue

Description: The second Technical Dialogue meeting under the Climate Recon 2050 project took place in the Polish capital Warsaw. Participants came from 22 different institutions including ministries, government agencies, research institutes, think tanks and universities, from 11 European countries. During the meeting topics were discussed that were identified as in-depth topics at the first meeting. The focus was on EU & Member State modelling, transparency of modelling and communication of results to policy makers. In addition to the thematic focus, the second session of the Technical Dialogue included a series of presentations on national experiences in 2050 modelling in the Member States, namely the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland and Slovenia, Portugal, Italy and France.

The role of shallow geothermal energy in transition to low carbon energy systems in Slovenia 

Authors: Gašper Stegnar

Linkhttps://www.wcf2019.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/89.pdf

Abstract: The deployment of geothermal energy systems can contribute significantly to climate change mitigation and play part in the transition to a low carbon society based on renewable energy by 2050. The challenge is not only to identify the amount of technical potential of possible exploitation but to determine the amount of economically viable potential as an individual heating system, new district heating systems or as support to existing ones.

The effect of harvesting on national forest carbon sinks up to 2050 simulated by the CBM-CFS3 model: a case study from Slovenia

Authors: Bostjan Mali, Jernej Jevsenak, Matija Klopcic

Link: https://doi.org/10.5194/egusphere-egu21-13486

Abstract: With the advent of global warming, forests are becoming an increasingly important carbon sink that can mitigate the negative effects of climate change. An understanding of the carbon dynamics of forests is, therefore, crucial to implement appropriate forest management strategies and to meet the expectations of the Paris Agreement with respect to international reporting schemes. One of the most frequently used models for simulating the dynamics of carbon stocks in forests is the Carbon Budget Model of the Canadian Forest Sector (CBM-CFS3). We applied this model in our study to evaluate the effects of harvesting on the carbon sink dynamics in Slovenian forests. /…/

Monitoring climate and energy policy implementation – How to take a step forward

This paper describes the establishment of the Climate Action Mirror, an integrated national climate action monitoring system in Slovenia. The main aim of the Mirror was to encourage policymakers to use analyses more to track the progress of the implementation of climate actions and thus to steer these activities towards a climate-neutral society. The system was developed in three annual cycles, in consultation with stakeholders and including a wide network of experts.
