The lower energy demand is due to a wide variety of measures related to sustainability which reduce demand for energy-intensive industries like steel, cement, bricks, aluminum, etc.

The lower energy demand is due to a wide variety of measures related to sustainability which reduce demand for energy-intensive industries like steel, cement, bricks, aluminum, etc. The second major driver is renewable energy which provides for one third of primary energy. 4 Co-benefits of Mitigation Climate change mitigation can deliver co-benefits or co-costs, and we examine the scenarios on two indicators: energy security and local environment. 1 Energy Security Energy security has been defined as the risk to the country from negative balance of energy trade and risks due to supply (Correlje and van der Linde 2006).
