This project will inform U.S. and international decision makers and stakeholders about how much U.S. climate policy action can achieve with regard to greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and what additional actions may be required to drive deployment of key technologies to achieve deep decarbonization by midcentury. Rhodium will conduct two analyses for public distribution: the first will quantify the combined impact of spending, regulations, and state actions on net U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and the second will identify priority areas of policy development after 2021.

Grants to this Grantee
for China climate economics analysis and advocacy  
The Rhodium Group works to strengthen economic analysis of China’s low-carbon transition. The grant will support the group in launching a multiyear initiative to reconcile a conventional growth policy imperative with China’s transition to a low-carbon economy future. It aims to produce research and arguments that relate international debate and solutions on just transition to the particular political economy challenges of broad economic reform and policy makings in China. The funds will enable Rhodium to use this research to enjoin high-quality discourse with Chinese economists, economic policy analysts, and climate policy researchers. Over the long run, it aims to connect that Chinese discussion with a global conversation of international policy instruments that are supportive of just transition and could accelerate China’s low-carbon transition from the 30/60 dual carbon goal to accelerated 2025/2050 dual carbon targets. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
for analytical support for a post-COVID19 green recovery  
This grant supports analysis of the emission, economic, and employment impacts of a range of climate and clean energy interventions, especially those related to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic effects. The nonpartisan analysis will be broadly disseminated through reports on the Rhodium Group’s website and shared with policymakers. (Substrategy: Multilateral)
for accelerating ambition of the major economies through 2030  
This project grant will support research to analyze the current climate mitigation policies of the 20 largest economies, compare those to where those countries need to be if we are to succeed in holding warming to under 2 degrees, and suggest policies countries can use to fill the gap. This would provide a roadmap for countries wishing to increase their ambition under the Paris Climate Agreement.
