Mitigating energy-related GHG emissions through renewable energy

El-Fadel, M., Chedid, R., Zeinati, M. and Hmaidan, W. (2003) Mitigating energy-related GHG emissions through renewable energy Renewable Energy, 28, (8), pp. 1257-1276. (doi:10.1016/S0960-1481(02)00229-X).

An inventory of greenhouse gas emissions from various economic sectors in Lebanon was conducted following the guidelines set by the World Meteorological Organization and United Nations Environment Programme Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The inventory indicated that the energy sector is the major contributor (74%) to greenhouse gas emissions. This paper describes the inventory of energy related GHG emissions and assesses mitigation options to reduce emissions from electricity generation with emphasis on the usage of renewable energy including biomass, hydropower, solar and wind resources. Policy options for overcoming barriers hindering the exploitation of renewable energy resources are discussed in the context of country-specific characteristics.
