What approach may be chosen when establishing the Baseline Emission Inventory?
Two different approaches may be chosen when establishing the Baseline Emission Inventory at local level, namely:
- The territorial or IPCC approach, covering all the CO2 emissions occurring due to final energy consumption in the territory of the local authority.
- The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, considering the overall life cycle of the fuels/electricity. This includes all emissions of the energy chain that also take place outside the territory (such as transport losses, refinery emissions or energy conversion losses).
