Asbjørn is an economist studying climate economics and policy, focusing on energy and climate.
Currently his projects include climate finance (choice of finance instruments for climate projects in developing countries), governance of biomass energy combined with carbon capture and storage, and design of climate policy after the Paris Agreement.
What is carbon capture?
We know that global greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced. And carbon capture and storage is drawing increasing interest as an important solution to achieving that goal. Coal power plants and cement production, ocean storage of co₂ emissions, Longship for transporting co₂ along the coastline ... It can all be confusing, so here is a brief explanation.

Politically Feasible Renewable Energy Development: The Role of Public Acceptance
Politically Feasible Renewable Energy Development: The Role of Public Acceptance.
The over-arching task of this project is to study the political feasibility of the low carbon energy policy transition initiated by the EU. In order to adopt and implement efficient policies at the regional, national and local level, public acceptance for policy change will be crucial.
