  • End-user GHG emissions from energy: Reallocation of emissions from energy industries to end users 2005…-2010

    The objective of this report (1) is to help improve the understanding of past greenhouse gas (GHG) emission trends in the energy sector from the demand or end.user side. To do this, the report develops a methodology to redistribute emissions from energy industries to the final users (by sector) of that energy. This reallocation is done on the basis of Eurostat's energy balances and GHG ...
