A ratio of power plant emissions per megawatts of electricity (MWe) that are produced.
Process to reduce emissions on existing power plants or machinery or a plan for new designs.
An emissions target or greenhouse gas emissions reduction target is the central policy instrument of international greenhouse gas emissions reduction politics and a key pillar of climate policy.
Emissions trading (also known as cap and trade, emissions trading scheme or ETS) is a market-based approach to controlling pollution by providing economic incentives for reducing the emissions of pollutants.
The emissivity of the surface of a material is its effectiveness in emitting energy as thermal radiation.
