The purpose of this Workshop is to review and share with a wider audience the results of the research project being supported by the IAEA on "Greenhouse Gas" (GHG) Mitigation Strategies and Energy Options", and to draw a suitable direction for future research on this subject.
Being the major source of GHG emissions, the energy sector will increasingly be affected by future response actions by the internal community for climate protection. The architecture of any post-Kyoto agreement, its flexibility instruments and their implementation rules will have a great influence on energy technology choices and investment decisions at both the national and global levels. It is therefore extremely important to assess the prospects for different energy supply options and associated technologies, including nuclear power with regard to their environmental effectiveness (GHG reduction), economic efficiency (least-cost climate protection) and their compatibility with long-term sustainable development objectives. In particular, this Workshop aims to disseminate information to assist in finding a mutual agreement on global mitigation targets, national reduction commitments and international mechanisms before the next COP-15 meeting in December 2009.
- Review of alternative response actions to climate change;
- Assessment of energy technologies for GHG mitigation under alternative response actions to climate change, both in industrialized and developing countries situations.
Applicants are encouraged to make contributory presentations during the Workshop on topics related to GHG mitigation potential of different energy technologies and/or response actions in the energy field to combat climate change. Short one-page abstracts (A4) of such presentations should be attached to the application form. File attachments should be in PDF format.
