This paper describes the main results of a study undertaken, between 2009 and 2010, in the city of Bolzano on the quantity and the main sources of CO2 emissions. The conclusions reached by the authors suggest that a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions is only possible by acting on all of the areas in which they occur and through a massive use of renewable energy. Furthermore, although the reduction of CO2 emissions requires huge initial investments, in the long run substantial reductions in energy costs for citizens and considerable revenues for local government will be obtained.
