Édition:The relevance of fossil fuel properties for climate change and energy transition discussions and policy-making. Clingendael International Energy Programme
Coal, oil and gas differ significantly in the amount of energy that they contain per unit of, for instance, weight or volume. The basic argument of this paper is the relevance of the ‘energy per carbon’ concept, especially in light of discussions on the carbon budget and the claim that most of the world’s fossil fuel reserves should stay in the ground if the global temperature increase is to remain below the 2°C limit.
