A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999




Item #d94apr101

U.S. Energy Information Administration reports available from the Natl. Energy Info. Ctr., Rm 1F-048, Forrestal Bldg., Washington DC 20585 (202-586-8800), or from NTIS (Natl. Technical Information Serv.), 5285 Port Royal Rd., Springfield VA 22161 (703-487-4650).

Energy Use and Carbon Emissions: Some International Comparisons, Apr. 1994. Examines 1970-1992 trends, finding that current emissions from non-OECD countries (52%) exceed those from OECD countries, a reversal from 1972 reflecting the faster growth in carbon emissions in the former.

Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in the United States: 1985-1990 (DOE/EIA-0573), 112 pp., 1993. A report mandated by the Energy Policy Act of 1992. CO2 emissions grew at an annual rate of 1.4%, slower than the 2.4% rate for gross domestic product. Uncertainties in the estimates of CO2 emissions from biomass and of other greenhouse gases are discussed extensively in Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 11-13, Oct. 1993.

Annual Energy Outlook 1994. With Projections to 2010 (DOE/EIA-0383(94)), 1994.

Item #d94apr102

The Climate Change Action Plan: Technical Supplement (DOE/PO-0011), Off. Policy, Planning & Prog. Evaluation, U.S. Dept. Energy, 1994.

Gives details of the assumptions concerning future energy-related CO2 emissions used to formulate the climate action plan needed for the U.S. to meet its commitment under the climate convention. Assumes a 3.4% increase from 1990 to 1998, then a slight decline by the year 2000.

Item #d94apr103

Analysis and Comparison of Four California Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventories, P. Fields, 75 pp., Apr. 1993, $35. Contact the author at E.H. Pechan & Assoc., 2880 Sunrise Blvd., S. 220, Rancho Cordova CA 95742 (916-852-1794).

The comparison, made on the basis of purpose, scope, methodology and results, indicates relative strengths and weaknesses and has general applications to inventory development.

Item #d94apr104

N2O Emissions from Coal Use (IEAPER/06), M. Takeshita et al., 28 pp., Nov. 1993, £30 (member countries of the Intl. Energy Agency)/£90 (nonmember countries). IEA Coal Res. Publications, Gemini Hse., 10-18 Putney Hill, London SW15 6AA (tel: +44(0)81-780 2111).

Analyzes how emissions depend on combustion technology used, particularly those used for limiting other potentially harmful emissions such as SO2. For instance, fluidized bed and selective non-catalytic combustion leads to higher N2O emissions.
