Range of measures and scenarios

The basis for all further deliberations is the desired scenario, aiming at a CO2 reduction of 30 % by 2005 (as compared to 2005) and the minimum scenario, with 2010 as target year and a first holding step in 2005.

The minimum scenario comprises a catalogue of measures, which goes beyond the currently foreseeable trend, but is still considered feasible under legal and political aspects, while the desired scenario contains further and stricter measures, which are to help to fulfil the target.

The established measures were assessed according to their

Those environmental protection measures are taken, which have the highest CO2 reduction potentials using the available means. What must be permanently considered is the conflict between the protection of economic interests (especially the labour market, industry, social sustainability) and limited public funds on the one hand and the biggest possible environmental effect through appropriate measures on the other.

We must note here that not all environmentally friendly measures also serve to protect the climate. The example of the catalytic converter shows that its introduction has had no immediate effect on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and therefore does not noticeably contribute to climate protection. The same is true for measures protecting sensitive areas (like residential areas), which might even lead to an increased vehicle mileage and can thus have counter-productive effects in terms of climate protection. Similar effects are expected in Stuttgart from certain energy conversion measures (combined heat and power systems, power generation).

The individual measures are listed, explained and summarized in special sheets. The lists contain in particular:

After the presentation of the measures, the resulting saving potentials for primary energy and CO2 are given for both the desired and the minimum scenario for the basic year 2010.

What is also listed is the amount of investments and supportive funds needed for the implementation of the measure as well as additional operating costs when indicated. These are taken as basic values for the assessment of the measure in terms of efficiency and cost-benefit-ratio.
