development of CO2 emissions
While Africa’s emissions of CO2 will almost triple under the Reference Scenario, under the Energy [R]evolution Scenario they will increase from 780 million tonnes in 2003 to 895 m/t in 2050. Annual per capita emissions will drop from 0.8 tonnes to 0.45 t. In spite of increasing demand, CO2 emissions will decrease in the electricity sector. In the long run efficiency gains and the increased use of bio fuels and electricity will reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector. With a share of 28% of total CO2 in 2050, the power sector will drop below transport as the largest source of emissions.
