ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy - Transition Phase

Lead Research Organisation: London School of Economics & Pol Sci
Department Name: Grantham Research Inst on Climate Change

Abstract

CCCEP launched in October 2008. The Centre is hosted jointly by the University of Leeds and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Its mission is to advance public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research.

Our research has always been impact-oriented and sought to respond to policy developments. From where CCCEP stands, the two key developments that shape climate policy today are:
1. the United Nations' Paris Agreement on climate change and the imperative of implementing it successfully around the world;
2. the UK government's pursuit of a low-carbon industrial policy in the context of Brexit.

Our research offers a rich evidence base for these two processes. Achievements to date include:
a. Improving the understanding and use of climate models in decision-making, made possible by forging new alliances between disciplines such as climate science, economics, philosophy and other social sciences.
b. We are a world-leading authority on the design of economic instruments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes. For example, our work has influenced reform of the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme.
c. We are at the forefront of bringing the 'empirical revolution' in economics to the field of climate change and energy, greatly improving the quality of evidence informing questions such as: do climate policies destroy jobs? Are they effective in reducing emissions and stimulating clean innovation?
d. Our research has advanced theory on social transitions and the role of government, individuals and ideas therein, by investigating UK climate policy dynamics during austerity.
e. Our joint research on Climate Change Laws of the World has guided the plans of lawmakers and negotiators at the United Nations and at the national level around the world.
f. Our research has helped to shape the UK's 2nd national Climate Change Risk Assessment, and many aspects of the implementation of the National Adaptation Programme, particularly in relation to flood risk and reinsurance.
g. We have developed new approaches to enable low-carbon cities, helping many cities to integrate low-carbon investments into their development and regeneration plans.

During the Transition Phase, we will prioritise maximising the academic and societal impact of research conducted to date. But we will also undertake new research in areas where knowledge gaps constrain our ability to have impact. Our new research projects for the Transition Phase are:
1. Competitiveness in the low-carbon economy;
2. Low-carbon industrial strategies in challenging contexts;
3. Low-carbon, climate-resilient cities;
4. Incentives for behaviour change;
5. Integrated policies for 'climate compatible development' (CCD);
6. Sustainable infrastructure finance;
7. Planning for climate resilience.

The research projects will be frontloaded to run for the initial 3 years (2018-21). However, we will engage with key stakeholders throughout the research process and continue to exploit a range of pathways to impact. This tiered approach will allow us to maximise the impact of our research. Our plans build on solid institutional foundations established over the last nine years, including CCCEP's position at LSE/Leeds, its management structure and its key staff. However, we also plan to refresh the team.

Capacity building
To build research capacity, we have contributed to the establishment of new university courses at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels at LSE and Leeds, and we have a large and vibrant cohort of PhD students and postdocs, supported by a peer-reviewed working-paper series and busy seminar series at both universities. These will continue into the next five years, and we will work closely with university colleagues to explore new avenues to build capacity, for example new or realigned Doctoral Training Programmes.

Planned Impact

During its first two phases, CCCEP has built up extensive relationships with decision-makers at the local, national and international levels, in the UK, European Union and beyond. These networks will be used over the five years of the Transition Phase to maximise the impact of the work carried out.

At the international level, CCCEP's work will continue to influence the negotiations through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), particularly in relation to the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions to Paris Agreement. In particular, CCCEP's ongoing work on finance for sustainable infrastructure, led by Lord Stern, will be showcased and discussed at the annual UNFCCC summits, as well as in other international fora, including G20 meetings and the special summit on climate change being hosted by the United Nations Secretary-General in September 2019. Lord Stern will also be interacting extensively with the multilateral development banks.

The new research on climate-compatible development will target decision-makers in resource-rich countries in sub-Saharan Africa, building on existing networks and developing new ones. This work will also inform delivery of the relevant Sustainable Development Goals. The new research on climate information for adaptation will be based on sustained consultations with local practitioners to inform planning, even in locations where there are currently low levels of knowledge. The results of this work will be communicated to ministries in key countries in Africa and Asia, and will also inform discussions at the UNFCCC.

Each of the seven new research projects will target at least one UK national Government Department. The projects on climate compatible development and climate information for adaptation will engage officials and ministers at the Department for International Development (DFID) to help inform decisions about the distribution of the UK's aid budget. The project on sustainable infrastructure investment will require extensive interactions both with DFID and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), particularly around issues of climate finance. The four remaining projects will also engage BEIS, particularly on the implementation of the Government's Clean Growth Strategy and the Industrial Strategy. The Department for International Trade and Her Majesty's Treasury will also be key stakeholders for the project on competitiveness, particularly in identifying and exploiting opportunities for exports of low-carbon goods and services.

In addition, CCCEP will seek to inform and influence Parliament, and will also continue to work closely with other expert advisory bodies, particularly the Committee on Climate Change.

The projects on low-carbon industrial strategies and cities respectively will also involve deep engagements with local decision-makers, particularly in Cornwall, Leeds and north-east England. The project on cities will involve the creation of a national forum with key stakeholders to broker information, develop new initiatives and support implementation. The project on low-carbon industrial strategies will be carried out in collaboration with regional partners, including the Northern Powerhouse Partnership and the Institute of Public Policy Research North. Most of the projects will also require the development of contacts with key decision-makers in the private sector. The project on incentives for behaviour change will involve the close cooperation of an airline and a renewable energy provider to design and execute two of the studies.

Although the public is not one of the main target audiences for CCCEP, there will be many public engagement activities during the Transition Phase. This will include regular communications through social media and traditional media, website content, and public events in London and Leeds, including contributions to the annual ESRC Festival of Science.

Organisations

 
Description The Centre is jointly hosted by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at LSE and the School of Earth and Environment of the University of Leeds, with Co-Directors at each institute and a joint Management Group. CCCEP is in a scaled-down third Phase of Transition at the end of its ESRC funding. CCCEP was established with the aim of advancing public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research. The dual focus on academic excellence and societal impact means that our research has always sought to respond to policy developments.

Seven research projects were included in the Transition Phase to run primarily during the first three years (2019 - 2022). The projects are now mostly complete (some experienced Covid-19 related disruption/delays) with papers published or in progress. For the year 2021 - 2022 across LSE and Leeds CCCEP produced 77 publications. This comprises a mix of disciplinary and interdisciplinary journal articles, working papers and policy type outputs (the CCCEP Working Paper series is now at Number 402).

Some of the many key findings include the following.
A CCCEP policy paper led by Professor Lord Stern (the Chair of CCCEP) on 'Fiscal responsibility in advanced economies through investment for economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic' published as a background paper for a major report, requested by the UK Prime Minister, on the economic recovery from the pandemic ahead of the G7 Leaders' Summit in June 2021. The paper concluded that governments must step in with sufficient ambition to provide the enabling environment to foster private investment, by investing in infrastructure, skills and intangible knowledge-generating assets. These investments must support the transition to sustainable and inclusive growth, advancing the fight against global threats, including infectious diseases, biodiversity loss and climate change.

Rory Sullivan (CEO of Chronos Sustainability) and Andy Gouldson (CCCEP) explain in a book published by Routledge in 2021 and titled; 'Climate Change and the Governance of Corporations: Lessons from the Retail Sector' when and where particular forms of governance intervention - including internal governance processes and external governance pressures - are likely to impact climate change. Based on this analysis, the authors offer practical proposals on the climate policy frameworks that need to be in place to facilitate or accelerate changes in corporate behaviour.

A CCCEP report 'Organisational preparedness for the physical risks of climate change in the UK: Headline findings from a UK-wide survey (April-May 2021)' was published in October 2021. The survey covers awareness among organisations of climate change, its physical risks and how organisations are taking action to prepare for perceived risks. Fifty-eight per cent of respondents said their organisations had been significantly affected by extreme weather events during the previous three years. In most cases these effects were negative and some have been long-lasting or have cross-cut sectors and geographical scales. Results paint a picture of UK organisations that are taking steps to prepare for extreme weather events in the future, with their top three actions being capacity building or some form of knowledge transfer, investment in new technologies and making an insurance claim.

CCCEP has complementary activities to the Place-based Climate Action Network (PCAN), which is also funded by ESRC. The University of Leeds and LSE are core partners, alongside Queen's University Belfast and the University of Edinburgh. Although reporting, external communications and project governance are separate, we treat CCCEP and PCAN as an integrated set of activities. The CCCEP research project titled 'Low-carbon, Climate-resilient Cities' works most closely with PCAN to research and pursue impact opportunities related to the transition to low-carbon and climate-resilient development at the city and community scales. With the three core PCAN cities of Belfast, Edinburgh and Leeds this has continued to support the development of independent climate commissions and prepare detailed action plans and roadmaps to guide the transition to net zero in different areas (PCAN outputs are reported separately in ResearchFish).

Description CCCEP is in a scaled-down third Phase of Transition at the end of its ESRC funding. The Centre was established with the aim of advancing public and private action on climate change through rigorous, innovative research and engagement. This year across LSE and Leeds CCCEP recorded 108 Engagement Activities and 12 examples of Impact, detailed in each partner's ResearchFish submission. The following examples describe some of the many types of engagement by CCCEP. The first example is related to the research project 'Competitiveness in the low-carbon economy' and activities associated with it. The UK has left the European Union Emissions Trading System (ETS) as a result of its departure from the European Union. Recent climate policy discussions have included a consideration of how the Member States can protect those industries that are covered by the ETS from unfair competition from imports from countries that do not have comparable carbon prices. These discussions have included the possibility of introducing a form of tariff, or carbon border adjustment mechanism (CBAM). In March 2020, Dr Misato Sato (LSE GRI) gave oral evidence to an inquiry on 'What does the EU's carbon border adjustment mean for the UK?' by the House of Lords EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee. In February 2021, Josh Burke (LSE GRI) gave oral evidence to an inquiry on 'Future UK-EU relations: energy, environment and health' by the Environment Sub-Committee of the House of Lords Select Committee on the European Union Environment Sub-Committee. In April 2021, Dr Sato among others published a CCCEP policy report on 'What does an EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism mean for the UK?'. This report was widely distributed to relevant audiences, particularly Government Departments such as the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and it was cited in the 'call for evidence' published by the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee to launch its inquiry into CBAMs in September 2021. The second example is related to the 'Climate information for adaptation" project and wider activities associated with it in Leeds. In part as a response to the recent third UK Climate Change Risk Assessment, and Climate Change Committee's critical 'Progress in adapting to climate change' report, Suraje Dessai, Jouni Paavola and Seunghan Lee organised in summer 2021 engagement workshops with the members of the Adaptation Team of the Department of Food, Rural Affairs and Agriculture (DEFRA) and other key stakeholders in adaptation on the barriers to adaptation policy in the UK. The key observations from the workshops were distilled in and published as Policy Leeds Brief number 8, 'A practical approach to addressing barriers to national climate adaptation policy in the UK.' Based on this and complementary work, the team submitted evidence in January 2022 to the Joint Committee on the National Security Strategy (JCNSS) inquiry into 'critical national infrastructure (CNI) and climate change adaptation'. Dessai has now been appointed a Special Advisor to advice the committee on conducting the inquiry in the spring and summer of 2022. The overall legacy of CCCEP's engagement successes through Phases 1 to 3 was recognised in 2021 when LSE received the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education. This was in recognition of the work carried out by CCCEP and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment for "providing a multi-disciplinary response to climate change", and for playing "a leading international role in the economics, investment policy and legislation essential for the implementation of practical measure addressing climate change".

Description This dataset contains sector level energy prices for 12 industrial sectors in 48 countries for the period 1995 to 2015. The prices are constructed as weighted averages of fuel-specific prices by fuel consumption. Two industrial energy price measures have been developed: the Variable Weights Energy Price Level (VEPL) and the Fixed Weights Energy Price Index (FEPI). Original data are provided by the International Energy Agency, as well as other sources. The procedures used to construct the dataset including the methodology developed to reduce missing data-points, are documented in the accompanying paper (link below). We also provide guidelines on how to use the energy price data along with a ready made instrumental variable, as well as a set of stylized facts on major trends and variations, and illustrative applications.
