Box 4.1.1: Potential emission reduction in energy production, OECD countries with focus on North America
The International Energy Agency (IEA) has developed a series of forecasts of industry emissions. Industry accounts for 40 per cent of emissions from energy production and has developed a series of scenarios to assess the emission reduction potential of industry through implementing of best available technology (BAT) and development and deployment of new technologies over the studied time frame 2006 - 2050.
