development of CO2 emissions
Whilst the ASEAN region’s emissions of CO2 will increase by 144% between 2010 and 2050 under the Reference scenario, under the Energy [R]evolution scenario they will decrease from 1,164 million tonnes in 2010 to 296 million tonnes in 2050. Annual per capita emissions will drop from 2.0 t to 0.4 t. In spite of the abstinence of nuclear power production and increasing energy demand, 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 also in the transport sector. With a share of 39% of CO2, the industry sector will be the largest sources of emissions in 2050. By 2050, the ASEAN region’s CO2 emissions are 26% below 1990 levels.
