Spain aims to reduce CO2 emissions

According to the Spanish Association of operators of petroleum products (AOP) AND KMPG, in the report"Perspective for the reduction of emissions of C02 in Spain to 2030. The role of petroleum products", It shows that they can be achieved with efficient cost objectives.

The study highlights the importance of implanting measures with the greatest potential emission reduction to the lower coast to society as a whole in order to meet the objectives of reduction of CO2 emissions in an efficient manner, without imposing additional costs to consumers. The Secretary of State for energy, Daniel Navia, his defence told the need to implement measures that take into account the maturity of the technologies available to reduce CO2 emissions. Navia considers that in 2030 they will have to be reduced, at least in a 40% GHG emissions with regard to the of 1990, renewables must represent the 27% of the total energy consumption, and get at least to the 27% improvement of energy efficiency.

Also mentioned the role that they can play mature technologies, the Secretary of State for energy commented that it is best "wait for the optimal time to incorporate technologies based on development". Navia considered to carry out a gradual transition to new energies "leaning on the domestic industry" so that Spain is not "a mere user of foreign technologies".

The study reflects that internal combustion of gasoline and diesel engines, as well as hybrids, "the relative cost of a significant reduction in CO2 emissions is lower than other alternative technologies". In addition mentions that the electric vehicle "you can play its role in the" reduction of CO2 emissions at the end of the Decade of 2020 without subsidy"". Warns the AOP study demonstrates the existence of alternatives that will achieve the objectives more efficiently with one cost less to society.
