An interesting paper from this morning,,  points out that (N)EDE-type models could potentially also resolve the problem of early galaxy formation found by JWST, as was also hinted at in a previous study The authors point out that the region of (N)EDE parameter space required for solving the JWST problem is the same region of (N)EDE parameter space needed for solving the H0 tension.

Check out the excellent talk by my collaborator, Florian Niedermann, on New Early Dark Energy (NEDE) in the CosmoVerse seminar series linked below.
