ABSTRACT
A report on the opportunities provided by the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is presented. It examines and compares the literature on ICT-enabled carbon dioxide emission mitigations. It provides a quantitative evaluation of emission mitigations potential of individual ICT solutions. Activities that may gain interaction between GHG emissions and ICT are also advised.

    Traditionally, economic analyses of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation focused on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy sources, while non-CO2 GHGs were not incorporated into the studies, due to the lack of data on abatement costs of non-CO2 GHGs. In recent years, however, increasing attention...
