Tackling Fossil Fuel Subsidies and Climate Change: Levelling the energy playing field
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Council of Ministers Secretariat2015 (English)Book (Other academic)
This report presents research on fossil fuel subsidy reform across 20 countries and reveals an average reduction in national GHG emissions of 11% by 2020 from potential reform, and savings of USD 93 per tonne of CO2. With modest recycling of resources to renewables and energy efficiency, reductions can be improved. Countries are including reforms in contributions towards a climate agreement.
