A bottom-up approach has been conducted to estimate greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and to analyze the marginal abatement cost for the Korean horticulture energy sector. With the systematically derived activity and energy balance data, the BAUs have been estimated, along with the marginal abatement cost over the period 2010 through 2030. The result from the marginal abatement cost analysis may provide general guidelines and procedures for the establishment of GHG abatement polices.
