- EMISSION REDUCTION ANALYSES
in Energy, 19(2), Feb. 1994:
"Cost-Efficient Emission Reduction Strategies for
Lithuania," C. Oder (Inst. Industrial Production, Univ.
Karlsruhe, Hertzstr. 16, D-76187, Karlsruhe, Ger.), H.-D. Haasis
et al., 149-163. Lithuania is faced with developing a new energy
system as a result of political changes in 1991. An energy-flow
optimization model with environmental modules developed by the
Commission of the European Communities is applied. Examines
constraints concerning investments and fuel imports in hard
"Global Energy Strategies to Control Future Carbon
Dioxide Emissions," Y. Sinyak (IIASA, A-2361 Laxenburg,
Austria), K. Nagano, 227-236. Simulates technical, economic,
social and cultural changes determining future energy use and
their environmental impacts through 2050, using two scenarios:
one following a "dynamic-as-usual" pattern, the other
using enhanced energy-efficiency improvements and conservation.
The consequences of various policy options in energy supply and
demand were evaluated for different approaches to
greenhouse-gas-abatement energy policy.
the Impact of CO2 Emission Control Scenarios in Finland on
Radiative Forcing and Greenhouse Effect," R. Korhonen (Tech.
Res. Ctr., POB 208, SF-02151 Espoo, Fin.), I. Savolainen, J.
Sinisalo, Environ. Mgmt., 17(6), 797-805, Nov.-Dec.
Used three alternative carbon cycle models to predict how
radiative forcing caused by CO2 emissions would change under
various emission reduction scenarios.
Differences in Emissions Reduction Opportunities: Policy
Implications," C.J. Andrews (Wilson Sch., Princeton Univ.,
Princeton NJ 08544), Energy Policy, 21(10),
1011-1024, Oct. 1993.
Applies a simple system-level emissions model to electric
utilities to show that best emission reduction strategies differ
across pollutants and regions. Policy makers should recognize
regional differences in existing power generation capacity.
Warming and Urban Smog: Cost-Effectiveness of CAFE Standards and
Alternative Fuels," A.J. Krupnick (Resources for the Future,
1616 P St. NW, Washington DC 20036), M.A. Walls, C.T. Collins, Energy
J., 14(4), 75-100, Oct. 1993.
Estimates that substituting compressed natural gas for
conventional gasoline is a more cost-effective method of reducing
greenhouse emissions than increasing the CAFE standard, or
substituting methanol or reformulated gasoline.
