Mitigation technologies and potential in

Table 11.2 summarises the various technologies and practices addressed in the last few sections (including also those relating to methane and forestry addressed in Chapter 10) and the possible contributions from different sectors both now and by 2030 to the required reductions in greenhouse gases.63 Figure 11.23 shows a range of estimates from a number of studies for the mitigation of CO2e emissions from the different sectors assuming different levels of the carbon price in terms of $US per tonne of CO2e. Comparing these estimates with the reductions in 2030 shown in Figure 11.4 indicates that, for a carbon price in the range $US50-100 per tonne CO2e, the required mitigation is achievable to lead to CO2e stabilisation at 450 ppm CO2e.
