Working Paper
Enhanced collaboration with countries with advanced technologies is essential to closing greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation gaps in developing countries’ energy consuming and producing sectors. However, traditional models of technology transfer tend to focus on the sale of expensive technologies to developing countries, often subsidised through aid or...
Commentary (Op. Ed)
「非効率石炭火力の段階的廃止」方針に対するコメント:方針はパリ協定と整合的ではなく、発電部門全体での排出ネットゼロ化を目指した措置が必要である。 第5次エネルギー基本計画及び長期戦略における、石炭火力発電のフェードアウトに関する記述に不正確なところがありました。お詫びして訂正いたします。
Working Paper
While the initial pieces of evidence indicate that COVID-19 induced economic slowdown and lockdown present short-term benefits to air quality and the environment, these also pose a double-edged challenge in the long-term. On one side, the slowing down of the economy can have an adverse impact on countries’ ongoing efforts towards climate mitigation...
BUAA-NIES Bilateral Workshop on Integrated Assessment of Health Co-benefits of Climate Change Mitigation Policy
This presentation highlights the following topics. - Relationships between 2030 mitigation target (NDC) and co-benefits such as health care and air pollution. - Assessment on the ambition of current Japan’s NDC by comparative study for model analysis and historical trend. - Showing an example on how to utilize or deliver the results from IAM models...

Peer-reviewed Article
In Energy Policy
This study investigates the stringency of Japan's greenhouse gas emissions reduction target for 2030 (nationally determined contribution: NDC), focusing on the macroeconomic assumptions of Kaya indicators and others previously overlooked, e.g. GDP per working-age population. It also conducted a decomposition analysis in light of historic political...
Submission to Policy Process
This submission highlights the key findings of the discussion at the Japan-India Climate Policy Research Workshop, held in July 2018 in India. The key messages include: 1.Enhancing multiple co-benefits aids further acceleration of the efforts in reducing the GHGs and other climate relevant emissions to achieve the long-term goal of the Paris...
This presentation outlines the analysis results of a questionnaire survey targeting the households in Hyogo prefecture, which received the ‘Uchi-eco Diagnosis’ (A tool to check the household energy use and recommend carbon mitigation countermeasures). It is indicated that solar PV and energy efficient water heaters have been largely applied in the...

将来のCO2排出量は、経済規模、産業構造といった「社会的前提要素」 と、気候変動政策の対象となるエネルギー効率、エネルギーの供給構成などの「対策対象要素」によって左右される(図a参照)。本稿は、日本の国別緩和目標(NDC 1)に記載される2030年GHG削減目標(以下、NDC目標)におけるエネルギー起源CO2排出量(以下、CO2排出量)に着目し、社会的前提要素(実質GDP)及び対策対象要素(実質GDP当たりの最終エネルギー消費量、最終エネルギー消費当たりのCO2排出量)がどのような水準であるのか考察 することを目的に、各要素について、既往の統計や研究等による推定結果と比較した。さらに、個々の要素の変化に対しCO2排出量がどのように変化するか、定量分析(感度分析)及びLMDI法...
