Decomposition analysis of the main factors influencing the development of EU-15 CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction (1990-2005)
Aggregating both effects provides the actual emission changes. Final energy intensity describes the effect resulting from the change of final energy consumption per gross value added. Fuel combustion intensity describes the effect resulting from the share of fuel use in final energy consumption. Fossil fuel combustion intensity describes the effect resulting from the amount of fossil fuels used in total fuel use (e.g. decreases due to increased use of biomass). Carbon intensity describes the effect resulting from the shift to less carbon-intensive fossil fuels; decreases are due to a shift from coal to oil or gas.
