FROM VOLUME 8, NUMBER 5, MAY 1995
Outlook1995 Edition, Apr. 1995, $79/DM129/FF425 (OECD/IEA).
Used two central scenarios (Capacity Constraints and Energy Savings) and
sensitivities to them. Although they both sued factors to check energy demand,
both resulted in projections of significant growth in energy demand and
resulting CO2 emissions. The world is projected to consume 34-45%
more primary energy in 2010 than it did in 1992. This year's report includes
detailed analyses of energy systems in OECD North America (Canada, U.S.,
Mexico), Central and South America (Latin America and Caribbean, except Mexico),
South Asia, and Africa. The only region where CO2 emissions may be
close to 1990 levels is in the Former Soviet Union and Central and Eastern

Compares economic development and CO2 emissions in 16 countries.
Energy Use and
Carbon Emissions in Non-OECD Countries, U.S. Energy Agency, Dec. 1994
The second of a two-part study for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Non-OECD countries accounted for about half the global energy consumption and
carbon emissions as of 1992, both of which are growing at a faster rate than in
OECD countries. China and the former Soviet Union accounted for about half of
the non-OECD energy consumption and carbon emissions in 1992.
Prospects to 2010, L. Jolly, C. Millsteed, R. Stuart, 38 pp., Nov. 1994, £255
(IEA Coal Res.).
Coal production in Indonesia grew rapidly in the late 1980s and early 1990s,
and should begin growing again later in the 1990s and beyond. Evaluates future
demand within Indonesia and internationally.
Prospects to 2010, 1995 (IEA Coal Res.).
Covers all Asian countries except Indonesia and China.
Prospects to 2010 (IEAPER/11), M. Daniel, June 1994 (IEA Coal Res.).
China is now the world's leading coal producer and depends on it for over
75% of total energy needs. Chinese coal output will continue to grow; however,
the level of capital needed to develop coal production, transport and
utilization may result in supply falling short of potential demand. This could
jeopardize China's ability to achieve stated economic growth targets.

Globally, aviation fuel use and emissions are both growing faster than other
types of energy use. Assesses the potential environmental impacts of these
emissions through the 21st century using scenarios of the potential growth of CO2
and NOx emissions from subsonic aviation. Even with large efficiency and
operating improvements, demand for aviation will create an inexorable growth in
emissions, mostly from developing countries, unless policies are aimed at
limiting them. Makes several recommendations for incentives, regulation, and
technology transfer, and examines shifting transport to other modes like
