Energy and climate change: evidence and analysis - greenhouse gas emissions

Dataset containing UK local authority and regional estimates of greenhouse gas emissions.

This dataset provide a breakdown of greenhouse gas emissions across the UK, using nationally available datasets going back to 2005. This year we have included estimates of methane and nitrous oxide emissions in these statistics for the first time, in addition to the carbon dioxide emissions estimates which were published previously. Estimates of emissions within National Park areas have also been included in the statistics for the first time.

The main data sources are the UK National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory and the BEIS National Statistics of energy consumption for local authority areas. All emissions included in the national inventory are covered except those from aviation, shipping and military transport, for which there is no obvious basis for allocation to local areas, and emissions of fluorinated gases, for which suitable data are not available to estimate these emissions at a local level.
