DA GHG inventory report published 2013

07 June 2013

Aether and the UK national air emissions inventory team have published the Devolved Administrations' Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory Report. This presents and explains the GHG emissions for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland over the time period: 1990-2011.

It provides the Devolved Administrations with their GHG emission inventories and assesses total emissions by ten sectors including: Energy Supply (e.g. electricity generation), Transport (e.g. road transport) and Agriculture (e.g. manure management).

The report looks at the significance of individual sources, analyses the trends and assesses the pollutant distribution for each of these sectors and for each Devolved Administration.

The main focus of the report is the By Source inventory that considers the source of the emissions - where the emissions are actually released. There are two additional ways of considering the emissions distribution that are applied and explained in the report: an end user inventory and a traded/non-traded inventory.

The end user inventory assigns emissions from power stations (generating electricity) to the users of that electricity. The traded/non-traded distinguishes between emissions that are under the EU ETS legislation and those that are not (non-traded). Both of these additional inventories help inform domestic policy.
