Inventory support

Tools and training for compiling emission inventories

Aether provides guidance documents, training and key tools for countries or regions to develop their own skills in emissions inventories.

Inventory guidance

As part of collaborative teams, Aether has authored guidance for countries developing emission inventories and emissions projections, on behalf of the European Commission.

Chris Dore chairs the Task Force on Emissions Inventories and Projections which is responsible for developing the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook.

Aether and TNO developed greenhouse gas emission projection guidelines in support of the EU's Effort Sharing Decision. This project brought together a team with long standing experience and excellence in developing and using GHG emissions projections and working with Policies and Measures at a national and international level.

Capacity building

Aether has a broad range of experienced experts skilled in capacity building and knowledge sharing.  These experts support the European Commission, UNDP and other organisations in delivering focussed and progressive programmes of capacity building including the development of organisational and institutional systems for sustainable data gathering, analysis and reporting of data on greenhouse gases and air pollutants.  Much of this work is focussed on supporting countries in meeting the Paris Agreement commitments, particularly on transparency and in developing sustainable MRV systems for Nationally Determined Contributions.

Aether provides leading roles in the organisation and management of the Task Force on Emissions Inventories and Projections (TFEIP), including the role of Chair. Aether arranges the annual meeting enabling worldwide air quality emissions experts to network, share best practice and new research findings.

Inventory tools

Aether provides a suite of tools to aid emissions inventory compilation and related data processes.  These tools range from simple spreadsheet templates and auditing tools to bespoke database solutions for calculation and reporting.

Aether has developed data visualisation and analysis tools to improve data interpretation and review.  Q-Comments can be used to systematise quality assurance and quality control activities to ensure transparency.  Whereas MRV system portals facilitate engagement across a wide breadth of stakeholders and maximise institutional knowledge retention and sharing.
