SEAP approaches overview

Type of CO2 emissions reduction target
Absolute - target calculated based on the total CO2 emissions in the baseline year

Per capita - target calculated based on the total CO2 emissions divided by the number of inhabitants in the baseline year
Emission factors
IPCC - emission factors for fuel combustion which are based on the carbon content of each fuel

Life cycle assessment - emission factors for the overall life cycle of each energy carrier
Emission reporting units
CO2 - only CO2 emissions are accounted

CO2 equivalent - emissions of CO2, CH4 and N2O are accounted and converted into CO2 equivalent
Baseline years
Baseline year - the year against which the 2020 target is set and the achievements of the emissions reduction in 2020 are compared.
More information on the SEAP methodological framework can be found on the SEAP Guidebook
