IPCC Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007
Climate Change 2007: Working Group III: Mitigation of Climate Change Heating and cooling

The wide range of fuels and applications used for temperature modifications and the poor data base of existing heat and refrigeration plants makes the mitigation potential for heating and cooling difficult to assess. IEA (2006a) calculated the mitigation potential by 2030 for buildings (Chapter 6) of up to 2.6 GtCO2/yr, including 0.1-0.3 GtCO2/yr for solar systems, and up to 0.6 GtCO2/yr for industry (Chapter 7). The mitigation potentials of CHP and trigeneration (heating, cooling and power generation) have not been assessed here.
