EMISSIONS: EUROPE AND THE U.K.


Item #d95may59

European Energy Project Report, 1994. Available from DRI/McGraw Hill, Intl. Energy Serv., 8-10 rue Villedo, 75001 Paris, France (tel: 33 1 44 778 336; fax: 33 1 42 602 505).


Item #d95may60

Energy Projections for the UK—Energy Use and Energy Related Emissions of Carbon Dioxide in the UK 1995-2020 (Energy Paper 65), Mar. 1995, 15.95/$25 (HMSO).

A government report projecting that the U.K. will slightly exceed its goal of stabilizing CO2 emissions at the 1990 level by the year 2000. This revised forecast results from a switch from coal to gas in electricity production, higher nuclear power output, and reduced energy demand because of economic recession. Unlike an earlier study for the U.K., this one factored in basic structural change and saturation effects in the electricity and building sectors, and used a disaggregated approach for energy supply and energy demand. (See discussion in Global Environ. Change Rep., p. 3, Mar. 24.)


Item #d95may61

UK Energy and Environment. First Edition, Feb. 1994; Second Edition, July 1994. Available through Cambridge Econometrics, Covent Garden, Cambridge CB1 2HS, UK (tel: 44 223 460 760; fax: 44 223 464 378). Estimates that the U.K. will meet its CO2 emission reduction target by the year 2000. A shift from coal- to gas-fired power plants is playing the greatest role in reducing UK greenhouse gas emissions. Without this shift, the U.K. might see a smaller reduction, or an increase in emissions.
