Abstract

Since the primary due period of 2008-2012 of the Kyoto Protocol Target Year is close at hand, specific measures for the prevention of global warming should be implemented in all areas. This paper outlines the energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission trends in the residential and commercial sectors in Japan. The paper presents the projections of CO2 emissions until 2050. The projections indicated that if the various energy conservation measures were implemented, up to 59% of reduction in CO2 emissions against the 1990 level can be achieved. The paper also describes political measures in energy conservation, including the building energy conservation standard, Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency (CASBEE), top-runner programs, financial incentives, and the dissemination of Cool Biz concept.
