German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel has released a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Germany by forty percent by the end of the next decade. The eight point proposal includes improving overall energy efficiency by eleven percent, updating power plants to improve efficiency, increased use of renewable energy sources, more co-generation, more efficient HVAC systems in buildings, and more biofuel use. The final point is reducing emissions of non-CO2 greenhouse gases such as methane. This last item could be helpful by capturing methane from land-fills and using it as a fuel which would reduce use fossil fuels for the same purpose.
