5.9 development of CO2 emissions

Whilst Israel’s emissions of CO2 will decrease by 5% between 2009 and 2050 under the Reference scenario, under the Energy [R]evolution scenario they will decrease from 63 million tonnes in 2009 to 26 million tonnes in 2050 Annual per capita emissions will drop from 8.7 tonnes to 2.2 tonnes. CO2 emissions will decrease in the electricity sector. In the long run efficiency gains and the increased use of renewable in vehicles will reduce emissions in the transport sector. With a share of 78%, power generation will be the largest source of emissions in 2050. By 2050, Israel’s CO2 emissions are 18% below 1990 or 58% below 2009 levels.
