Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Mitigation Scenario Analysis
ETA’s international analysis researchers and collaborators have established a novel bottom-up, end-use modeling framework to project future national non-CO2 GHGs emissions, including methane, N2O, and F-gasses. This modeling framework provides an understanding of the sources and drivers for future non-CO2 GHG emissions, and various technological and policy options for specifically addressing these gasses. It has been applied to China to evaluate different scenarios of non-CO2 GHG emission trajectories, based on different adoption of mitigation technologies and measures based on technological feasibility and costs of abatement. The different mitigation scenarios will present policymakers and program implementers with tools and insights to set realistic and achievable near-term and long-term goals and prioritize and initiate actions quickly to combat climate change.
