Energy consumption and related CO2 emissions in five Latin American countries: Changes from 1990 to 2006 and perspectives

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 30 August 2010brClaudia, Sheinbaum , Belizza J., Ruíz , Leticia, OzawabrThis study examines the primary energy consumption and energy-related CO2 emissions in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela during the period 1990–2006. It also reviews important reforms in the energy sector of these countries as well as the promotion of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy sources (RES). Using a decomposition analysis, results indicate that even though significant reductions in energy intensity have been achieved in Colombia, Mexico and in a lesser extent in Brazil and Argentina, the reduction of CO2 emissions in these countries has not been significant due to an increased dependence on fossil fuels in their energy…
