for the UKEnergy 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.

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.
