In the meantime, demand for energy-intensive products was simulated by input-output analysis with a focus on downstream sector development analysis. 1 gives a scenario for energy-intensive product output in China used in the emission scenarios. The national analysis on economic development could much more reflect national experts’ viewpoints, which normally has quite big difference with the global projection on China’s GDP growth. This could be seen in comparison between global modelling excises and China’s national model analysis, such as IEA’s World Energy Outlook (WEO) and IPAC model (IEA 2011; Kejun et al.
Sustainability policies reduce energy demand and enhance share of renewables. • Low carbon policies aligned to sustainability goals deliver sizable co-benefits. • Sustainability scenario delivers same carbon budget with lower social cost of carbon. 1 Introduction India has endorsed the long-term target of limiting the temperature rise to under 2 C (GoI 2008) and has also made voluntary commitment for reducing the emission intensity of GDP in the year 2020 by 20–25 % below that in the year 2005 at COP15 in Copenhagen.
The underlying structure of this scenario is otherwise similar to the BAU. The scenario assumes stabilization target of 450 ppmv CO2e. The CO2 price trajectory assumes implementation of ambitious Copenhagen pledges post 2020, and CO2 price trajectory therefore is below 15 US $ per t CO2 till 2020 and then increases steadily to reach 200 US $ per t CO2 by 2050 (Lucas et al. 2013). The scenario assumes greater improvements in the energy intensity and higher share of wind and solar renewable energy compared to the BAU scenario.
