Over 170 measures to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases, substances regulated under the EU National Emission Ceilings directive and particulate matter are described for the years 2010 and 2020. The descriptions of these measures are made available on the internet. This report has the function of a background report to these fact sheets.

This report describes the background scenario and the emissions levels in 2010 and 2020, which are the starting points for the emission reduction measures. Each of the aspects in the fact sheets, like the emission reduction potential, cost aspects and the (public) support for the meas-ures, are explained. Furthermore, the optimization model is described with which sets of reduc-tion measures can be put together. These sets of emission reduction measures are cost-minimized solutions for specific emission reduction targets or emission levies, for one or more of the compounds studied. Examples of emission reduction analyses are shown and the maxi-mum attainable emission reduction with the described measures is reported.
