• A Comment on the Copenhagen Accord- Feasibility and Cost 

      Glomsrød, Solveig; Wei, Taoyuan; Alfsen, Knut H. (CICERO Working Paper;2011:03, Working paper, 2011)
      The Copenhagen Accord has been followed up by national pledges of greenhouse gas emissions reductions in the year 2020 without specifying measures to enforce actions. As a consequence, the capacity of parties to fulfil ...
    • A warmer policy for a colder climate: Can China both reduce poverty and cap carbon emissions? 

      Glomsrød, Solveig; Wei, Taoyuan; Aamaas, Borgar; Lund, Marianne Tronstad; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Reducing global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is often thought to be at odds with economic growth and poverty reduction. Using an integrated assessment modeling approach, we find that China can cap CO2 emissions at 2015 ...
    • Business as UNusual: the implications of fossil divestment and green bonds for financial flows, economic growth and energy market 

      Glomsrød, Solveig; Wei, Taoyuan (CICERO Working Paper;2016:01, Working paper, 2016)
      Green bonds and fossil divestment has emerged as a bottom-up approach to climate action within the business community. Recent pledges by large banks and institutional investors have reached levels that have the potential ...
    • Climate change impacts on crop yield: Evidence from China 

      Wei, Taoyuan; Cherry, Todd; Glomsrød, Solveig; Zhang, Tianyi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      When estimating climate change impact on crop yield, a typical assumption is constant elasticity of yield with respect to a climate variable even though the elasticity may be inconstant. After estimating both constant and ...
    • Energy Market Impacts of Nuclear Power Phase-Out Policies 

      Glomsrød, Solveig; Wei, Taoyuan; Mideksa, Torben Kenea; Samset, Bjørn Hallvard (CICERO Working Paper;2013:01, Research report, 2013)
      After the Fukushima disaster in March 2011 safety concerns have escalated and policies towards nuclear power are being reconsidered in several countries. This article presents a study of the effect of nuclear power phase-out ...

      Since the Fukushima disaster in Japan in March 2011, safety concerns have escalated and policies toward nuclear power are being reconsidered in several countries. This article presents a study of the upward pressure on ...
    • Extreme weather, food security and the capacity to adapt – the case of crops in China 

      Wei, Taoyuan; Glomsrød, Solveig; Zhang, Tianyi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Three extreme weather scenarios are examined for agriculture in China in this study. One scenario assumes a year when every province has precipitation corresponding to the lowest level experienced in the province over the ...
    • Extreme weather impacts on maize yield: The case of Shanxi Province in China 

      Wei, Taoyuan; Zhang, Tianyi; Bruin, Karianne de; Glomsrød, Solveig; Shi, Qinghua (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Extreme weather can have negative impacts on crop production. In this study, we statistically estimate the impacts of dry days, heat waves, and cold days on maize yield based on household survey data from 1993 to 2011 in ...

    • The effects of energy efficiency improvement in China with global interaction 

      Glomsrød, Solveig; Wei, Taoyuan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      China has pledged to reduce its carbon intensity defined as carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP by 40–45% by 2020 and by 60–65% by 2030 compared to the 2005 level. To fulfill the pledges, China’s government has made ...
