ENERGY/EMISSION ANALYSES


Item #d95nov77

Three reports from the U.S. Energy Information Administration:

Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States, 1987-1994, Oct. 1995. Total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions grew by 1.7% from 1990 to 1993; CO2 emissions grew by 2.4%. A jump in the economy caused CO2 emissions to grow 4.1% over the 1990 level. Emissions of methane decreased in 1993, while N2O emissions increased slightly.

International Energy Outlook 1995, June 1995. Estimates that carbon emissions will increase by approximately 35% from 1990 to 2010, and that carbon emissions from non-OECD countries will be greater than those from OECD countries by the year 2000. Electricity will remain the fastest-growing form of energy consumption worldwide; most of the growth will be in non-OECD countries. Substantial improvement in world energy intensity (energy consumption per unit of gross domestic product) is expected, most of it occurring in developing countries.

Changes in Energy Intensity in the Manufacturing Sector: 1985-1991, Oct. 1995. U.S. energy intensity leveled off after the dramatic decreases observed during the 1980s.


Item #d95nov78

"Canadian Carbon Dioxide Emissions," 12 pp., June 1995. One of nine articles in Environmental Perspectives Studies and Statistics. Contact Statistics Canada, Ottawa, Ont. (tel: 613 951 7277; fax: 613 951 8018).

Increased CO2 emissions from 1981 to 1990 correlate with increased gross domestic product and increased energy prices, with the exception of 1986, when industries shifted from petroleum to natural gas as crude oil prices rose. The study apportions total CO2 emissions to the business sector (76%), households (21%), and government activities (3%).


Item #d95nov79

Australian Energy Consumption and Production: Historical Trends and Projections to 2009-10 (Res. Rep. 95.1), 184 pp., Feb. 1995, Aus$29. ABARE

Provides detailed long-term projections, historical data, analysis of energy consumption by sector and fuel type, trends in energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector.


Item #d95nov80

Asian Coal Prospects to 2010 (IEAPER/18), M. Daniel, Mar. 1995, 255 (85 in IEA member countries). IEA Coal Res.

The Asian region has more growth in energy, electricity and coal demand than any other part of the world; it consumes almost half of all internationally traded coal. This report covers 18 Asian countries which will play a crucial role in coal use over the years to 2010.


Item #d95nov81

Inventory and Projections of Minnesota Greenhouse Gas Emissions, 1990-2010, June 1995. Summary, 17 pp.; full report, 110 pp. Available from Ctr. for Energy & Environ.

Prepared for the Increasing Energy Efficiency and Reducing CO2 Project, funded by the Legislative Commission on Minnesota Resources, as a basis for developing an action plan for the state. (The plan is listed in Reports/Mitigation, this issue--Nov. 1995) Projections suggest that increases in fuel use are the key issue, since other greenhouse gas sources are expected to grow very little (or even decline, as in the case of methane). However, even a goal of stabilization at 1990 levels in the year 2010 is ambitious, since a decrease of 29% of 2010 emissions would be required.
