Abstract:
This report discusses some major conceptual and methodological issuesconcerning cost assessments of mitigation options in the energy sector of non-Annex I countries, based on an evaluation of a previous joint ECN-AED-SEI study on the potential and cost of such options (Van der Linden et al, 1999). In addition to reviewing and updating the cost curves and other major findings of this bottom-up study, the present report provides

  1. a conceptual framework for analysing the costs of mitigation options
  2. a discussion of the major methodological issues involved in constructing and applying abatement cost curves by means of a bottom-up approach
  3. a comparison of different methodological approaches - i.e. 'bottom-up', 'top-down' and 'intermediate'- to assess the cost effects of the Kyoto Protocol
