NewEDGE: New Economics of Decarbonising the Global Economy, funded by The Three Guineas Trust.
The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) conducts programmes of research, education and engagement in the interdisciplinary area of coupled energy-economy-environment (E3) modelling, with an emphasis on assessing strategies of climate change mitigation. The over-arching intellectual theme is NewEDGE (New Economics of Decarbonising the Global Economy). This involves building the theoretical and empirical foundations for study of how economic, energy and environmental policies interact to drive decarbonisation of national and global economies, and reduce the risk of climate change. The research is done both in support of national and global policy assessments, and in collaboration other groups in the Tyndall Centre to create an integrated assessment model coupling climate science and E3 models.
