Power sector decarbonisation: Metastudy WP 1.2

Comparison Methodology

The present document provides the suggestion for an analytical framework to decompose emission reductions in the power sector based on data retrieved from studies which provide scenarios of power sector decarbonisation. With the given approach and under sufficient data availability it will be possible to reveal the contributions of demand side effects such as changing consumption patterns in traditional and new appliances and increased electricity demand of new appliances and storage inputs. At the same time a changing power generation structure also contributes to emission reductions and can be explicitly considered. Electricity generation from CCS can be considered if data availability if sufficiently documented and the analysis proceeds as laid out in the Appendix.
