Cover Page

Abstract


The article is devoted to the measures to solution the problem of air pollution in Germany. The most significant of all the sources of air pollution is thermal power generation. Analysis of the dynamics of greenhouse gas emissions in 1990-2012 in Germany showed a positive trend in its reduction, mainly due to their reduction in the electricity sector. The results of the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol in Germany and major public policy measures in 2000 contributed to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions as a result of reforms in the power sector. They are caused mainly by the practice of economic instruments aimed at structural changes in the production of electricity with orientation to alternative energy sources.
