Netto Null Panorama Literatur

Literature Overview

In Net-Zero-2050 - Cluster I of the Helmholtz Climate Initiative – scientists are investigating and evaluating different strategies and new approaches towards CO2-neutrality in Germany by 2050.
On this page we give you a first insight into the topic and provide a literature overview with a focus on the literature relevant to the project‘s individual work packages. The overview will be continuously updated, but does not claim to be complete.
You will find introductory literature on the current state of knowledge on climate change as well as on political strategies and goals in Germany, the EU and in the wider international context. In addition, current scientific approaches are presented and categorized according to the four-part project structure of Net-Zero-2050. Since the research project works across a variety of research areas and involves the public in two case studies, scientific publications on inter- and transdisciplinary work are presented at the end of this literature overview.
