Energy, CO2 and GHG models

Devising and building the Energy (and associated CO2 emission) picture for UK Devolved Administrations required first devising a reporting structure, then gathering and manipulating information from a variety of sources.  Industry is only one of the 4 main end-users, the others being Residential, Services and Transport.

For a full GHG “footprint” assessment, additional CO2 emissions from industrial process (such as dissociation of carbonates) and from land-use change & forestry also get included, as well as the other GHG gases, namely: methane, nitrous oxide, HFCs CFCs and SF6.

As with the Industry databases, these exercises could be repeated, using the same methodology, to build up a picture of trends over time.
