The control of outdoor air intake rates in mechanically ventilated bldgs. based on indoor carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, often referred to as CO2 demand controlled ventilation (DCV), has the potential for reducing the energy consumption assoc. with bldg. ventilation in commercial & institutional bldgs. CO2 DCV has been studied for 20+ years, but questions still remain re: the actual energy savings potential as a function of climate, ventilation system features, & bldg. occupancy. In addition, questions exist as to the indoor air quality impacts of the approach & the best way to implement CO2 DCV

The report discusses how economic instruments can be used to reduce CO2 emissions from passenger cars in the Nordic countries. The analysis indicate that: the registration tax and the annual circulation tax can contribute to a reduction in the average CO2 emission from new cars; company car schemes in the Nordic countries provide incentives for larger cars and increased driving because of subsidies, and this has long term effect as a large share of new cars are registered as company cars but are used as private cars most of their lives; CO2 differentiated taxes can provide incentives to consum

Congress has been debating a range of potential initiatives for reducing atmospheric CO2 from U.S. sources. Legislative proposals would seek to limit U.S. CO2 emissions to historical levels through emissions caps, carbon taxes, or other mechanisms. In the 110th Congress, the most prominent CO2 proposals sought reductions of nationwide CO2 emissions to 1990 levels or lower by 2030.

Road transport accounts for approximately 80% of CO2 emissions emanating from transport, which corresponds to more than 20% of total emissions. This clearly has enormous implications for global climate change. With the continued growth forecast in car ownership and distance travelled, what are the expected trends in CO2 emissions and their consequences for the potential achievement of the Kyoto Protocol? What models are available to predict the level of CO2 emissions? Are they useful? This report, which has been prepared by an OECD Working Group, uses a number of illustrative and pragmatic cas

En dépit des efforts importants déployés par certains pays, les émissions de CO2 liées aux transports n’ont cessé de croître au cours de la dernière décennie. Ce rapport passe en revue les progrès accomplis par les pays de l’OCDE et de la CEMT en matière de réduction des émissions de CO2 imputables au secteur des transports. Il inclut des données détaillés par pays sur les mesures de lutte contres ces émissions pour les années 1990-2003.

Responding to a Gleneagles G8 Summit reguest, this book shows how changes in energy efficiency, economic structure, income, prices and fuel mix have affected recent trends in energy use and CO2 emissions in IEA countries. The results are disturbing. Since 1990, the rate of energy efficiency improvement in IEA countries has been less than 1 per cent per year - much lower than in previous decades and not nearly enough to stem the growth of CO2 emissions. If climate change is to be tackled, and IEA countries move towards a sustainable energy future, then this rate will need to double. This report
