We are continuously working in new fields, sectors and geographies. Latest news on our activites will be placed here. A snapshot of some recent projects, studies and initiatives is outlined below. Please get in touch for more information.
At the Paris Climate Conference in December 2015, Chile committed to reducing its GHG emissions intensity by 30% by 2030 from 2007 levels - rising up to 45% with additional international support. The energy sector will be key to Chile’s efforts towards meeting its targets: energy emissions represent around 75% of total national emissions (excluding forestry). Closing the gap between a ‘business as usual’ emissions trajectory for the country and the mitigation pathways required under the NDC targets will involve Chile putting in place concrete policies and measures which target key emitting sectors of the economy such as power production, transport, industry and residential.

Carbon Counts hosted a half-day workshop to assess the feasibility and options for introducing an Inducement Prize for Artificial Photosythesis under the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme. The work forms part of larger study being led by Ecorys and partners* on behalf of the European Commission, DG Research and Innovation. Artificial Photosynthesis technologies consist of a range of emerging technologies, including photocatalytic watersplitting devices, synthetic biological systems and co-electrolysis processes. Progress in R&D in these types of emerging technologies could soon feature as a an area for future Horizon Prize as part of the Inducement Prize process being run by DG RT
