While energy-related CO2 emissions in Russia will increase by more than 20% under the Reference Scenario until 2050 and are thus far removed from a sustainable development path, under the Energy[R]evolution Scenario CO2 emissions will decrease from 1,527 Mill.t in 2005 to 476 Mill. t in 2050. Annual per capita emissions will drop from 10.6 t/capita to 4.4 t/capita. In spite of the phasing out of nuclear energy and a slightly increasing electricity demand CO2emissions will decrease in the electricity sector enormously.Efficiency gains and the increased use of renewable electricity for vehicles and some limited sustainable bio fuels will reduce CO2emissions in the transport sector by over 50%. The power sector will maintain the role as one of the largest sources of CO2 emissions in Russia, with a share of 50% of total CO2 emissions in 2050.
