Abstract: Concern about the availability of energy resources has given way in recent years to increasing awareness of the environmental impacts of energy production, conversion and use. Future energy policies must be based on limiting and even reducing future emissions of greenhouse gases. Consequently, a number of national carbon dioxide reduction plans have been announced, which are aimed at stabilizing and in some cases even reducing further emissions.

Keywords: environmentally compatible energy strategies; greenhouse gases; GHG emissions; mitigation measures; carbon dioxide; CO2; carbon emissions; emission reduction.
