Homes responsible for one quarter of European greenhouse emissions from energy

Homes responsible for one quarter of European greenhouse emissions from energy

The report, 'End-user GHG emissions from energy: Reallocation of emissions from energy industries to end users 2005-2009' , demonstrates a new method of analysing the drivers of emissions by considering end user demand. The analysis redistributes 'indirect' emissions, mostly from oil refineries and plants generating electricity and heat, in order to calculate the overall emissions linked to each sector. When the indirect emissions are considered, greenhouse gas emissions from the residential sector double (from 12 to 25 %) and the commercial sector trebles (from 5 to 15 %). Industry jumps from 15 to 26% when indirect emissions are factored in. Transport causes relatively small indirect emissions, pushing transport emissions from 25 to 29 %. Changes in emissions 2008-2009 Between 2008 and 2009, energy-related emissions fell by 7 % in the EU. This dramatic fall has been attr...
