Non-Annex 1 Marginal Abatement Cost curve (NAMAC-ECN)

Identifying options for climate change mitigation and calculation of the mitigation costs

The ECN NAMAC curve tool provides information on the cost of many mitigation options for non-Annex 1 countries. The opportunities for emission reductions included in the MAC-curve take into account the investments and associated costs. A marginal abatement cost curve states the specific costs of mitigation of the different options. It presents how much tCO2-emissions can be abated per specific option and thereby the amount of money it will cost or save you per tCO2. The curve tool compiles its results from bottom-up country studies, to provide information on existing MAC-curves as opposed to creating new ones.
