I am an economist studying climate economics and policy, focusing on energy and climate.

Currently my projects include climate finance (choice of finance instruments for climate projects in developing countries), governance of biomass energy combined with carbon capture and storage, and design of climate policy after the Paris Agreement.

Prosjekter

  • Politically Feasible Renewable Energy Development: The Role of Public Acceptance. The over-arching task of this project is to study the political feasibility of the low carbon energy policy transition initiated by the EU. In order to adopt and implement efficient policies at the regional, national and local level, public acceptance for policy change will be crucial.
  • Governance of Bio-CCS This project presents a state of art overview of governance issues (government support, incentive systems, and public acceptance) and possible solutions for biomass coupled to Carbon Capture and Storage, with a view to the broader set of negative emission technologies.
  • Global Impacts: How to estimate and use environmental footprints The first part of this project will build on the large body of quantitative analyses to provide a synthesis of the methodological and analytical basis for environmental footprints. This first part will be short and focused, drawing on existing material. The second part of this project will describe the state-of-the-art in terms of the challenges and opportunities of consumption-based approaches to environmental policy. We will give particular attention to the policy implications (usefulness, utility, appropriateness, etc), and draw on the available economic and policy literature.
  • Greening investments in the face of climate risk To what degree can the emerging green bond market catalyse investment for low-carbon and climate-resilient solutions?
  • Vurdering av grønne obligasjoner CICEROs vurdering av grønne obligasjoner er uavhengig og forskningsbasert. Formålet er å gjennomgå om investeringene som skal finansieres ved grønne obligasjoner støtter opp om en utslippsfri og klimatilpasset utvikling.

  • Obligasjoner får tre graderinger av grønnt CICERO gir grønne obligasjoner karakter etter hvor sterk miljøeffekten antas å være. Dermed er det enklere for investorer å få innsikt i det raskt voksende markedet for grønne obligasjoner.
