Hello there,

I am working on the EU ETS and I wonder whether there is an overview of what sectors are covered under the scheme and which are not, with the corresponding share of total EU emissions. Alternatively: is there a way to convert the IPCC sectors to EU ETs sectors? I only find EU Emissions Trading data with no regard to total emissions and EU total emissions with no regard to EU ETS sector coverage. I found that this question was asked in the forum in 2009, but to no avail (http://community.eea.europa[…]ets%20conversion#1365101475)

Dear Lisa Schmid,

The EEA is responsible for the compilation of the EU GHG inventory, based on the national inventories of the 28 EU Member States. All these data (EU + national) are available in the EEA’s GHG data viewer:[…]/greenhouse-gases-viewer.
The data is provided by main source category, based on the IPCC nomenclature for national inventories (‘Common reporting format’ of the ‘IPCC reporting guidelines’). This nomenclature is different from ETS activity types. The reported emissions cover, however, all anthropogenic sources (including all ETS installations).
Please also see the EU NIR, where we provide the mapping ETS/CRF following the UNFCCC reviews
See ‘ Mapping table between EU ETS activities and CRF categories’ (from page 54)[…]/

I hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,
