Emission baselines: estimating the unknown.

Author(s) : IEA

Type of monograph: Book


Climate change is one of the key challenges facing the international community. Rigorous methodological analysis is required before any decision can be taken. This book provides that analysis, examining issues in the development of emission baselines in four key sectors: electricity; cement; energy efficiency; and iron and steel. It moves the debate from the theoretical to the practical and provides insights on how to develop credible, workable and transparent baselines from which to quantify the mitigation effects of projects initiated under the "Kyoto mechanisms".
