Area: 10,452 Km2
Public Sector (EDL) 77%; Private Generation 15%; Imports from Syria: 8% (850 KWh in 1999)
The assessment revealed that Fuel substitution by natural gas can provide emissions reduction by 117 million tons of CO2 and 251 million tons of CO2 for demand growth of 4% and 6%, respectively; and the improvement of supply mix through renewable solar energy (<10%) can provide around 30 million tons of CO2 emissions reduction.
The mitigation scenarios assessed include:
CO2 1916 Gg
CO 0.003 Gg
N2O 0.013 Gg
NMVOC 106.717 Gg
SO2 1.12 Gg
HFC’s 0.252 Gg
CO2 Emissions from Industrial Sources (1999)
