Abstract
The paper describes the German plan to reduce C02 emissions by 25-30% up to the year 2005. The analysis of the technical potential to reduce energy consumption by improved energy efficiency leads to the conclusion that an overall 35% to 45% improvement in energy efficiency would be feasible. The demand for energy can be further reduced by decreasing the level of energy services used. Other options are an increased use of renewable energy, inter-fossil fuel substitution and nuclear energy. Different scenarios demonstrate that priority has to be given to energy conservation and an increased use of renewable energy. The net costs of this scenarios are calculated at 1.5 to 5 billion dollar per year. The policy options to reach the reduction target can be characterized as economic instruments (e.g. taxes), and sectoral measures, e.g. regulation, financial incentives, laws/standards and information programs. An analysis of the measures already adopted or prepared shows a low level of financi al incentives. On the other hand the number of economic instruments is increasing. Standards seem to play a very important role. A shortcoming is the relatively low level of information and motivation measures.
