The Indirect Costs and Benefits of Greenhouse Gas Limitations: Mauritius Case Study

This study applies a methodology for evaluating greenhouse gas limitation projects in the broader social and environmental issues that many developing countries face to projects being considered in the Republic of Mauritius. In particular, six greenhouse gas limitation projects are discussed: installing of a wind farm, increasing the annual electricity tariff by 10% a year, replacing 125 streetlights with 125 photovoltaic streetlights, replacing domestic electric water heaters with solar water heaters, replacing part of the current, diesel-powered, bus fleet with buses powered by liquefied petroleum gas, and generating an additional 50 GWh per year from a mixture of bagasse and coal
