Development of sectoral indicators

For determining potential decarbonization opportunity

Published: 23/04/2015

This report provides a comparative analysis of the energy and carbon intensity indicators across seven major greenhouse gas emitting sectors: steel, cement, pulp and paper, chemical, power, residential and commercial, and transport sectors. The analysis focuses on the major emitting countries Japan, USA, Russia, EU, UK, Germany, France, China, India, Indonesia and Brazil.

While the analysis does not necessarily cover all countries mentioned given the lack of adequate and publicly accessible data, it provides valuable insight into the best practices across nations, and constitutes a benchmark for energy efficiency improvement and decarbonization. The report was jointly written by The Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ) and Ecofys.
