Item #d90nov65

At a recent workshop (April 1990, Petten, the Netherlands), plans were presented for a three-year international program to analyze policy options for carbon dioxide emission reductions. The program, Greenhouse Gases and National Energy Options: Technologies and Costs for Reducing Emissions of Greenhouse Gases, results from Annex IV of the International Energy Agency's (IEA) Implementing Agreement to its Energy Technology Systems Analysis Program (ETSAP). ETSAP modeling results for IEA member countries (primarily in western Europe and North America) have already contributed to the response strategies report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Annex IV directs extending application of national models of greenhouse gas emission control to non-IEA countries, making use of a new generation of personal computers. Goals are: (1) to identify cost-effective blends of technological options to reduce national or regional emissions and secure other energy and environmental objectives; (2) to understand differences among national results and help integrate results of national energy models as a contribution to global policy development; (3) to find ways to reach out beyond the current ETSAP membership to relevant parties in both IEA/OECD countries and in centrally planned and developing countries, and include those parties in compatible analyses of national energy systems in international forums. For more information contact project head Tom Kram in ESC/Global Issues at the operating agent for ETSAP/Annex IV: Netherlands Energy Research Foundation, POB 1, 1755 ZG Petten, the Netherlands (tel: +31-2246-4347; fax: +31-2246-3338). The April and September 1990 issues of IEA ETSAP News have covered the Annex IV and initial activities and results of the related program.
