Energy and GHG Emissions

GHG emissions

Emissions occur at three different levels :

  • Final consumption of energy goods (only CO\(_2\))
  • Intermediate consumption of energy goods (only CO\(_2\))
  • Emissions related to production processes (non-CO\(_2\) gases)

Therefore, CO\(_2\) emissions are dealt with in a different way than other gases:

  • CO\(_2\) emissions are recovered as proportional to the energy quantities consumed, using energy-, sector- and country-specific factors determined by the data. This means that the accounting correction coefficient applies to these emissions.
  • Other GHG emissions enter the production function directly and are left as-is.
