Data centre overview
The climate change data centre contains information reported by European countries and additional relevant information, for example from research projects. It is maintained and hosted by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The climate change data centre will be developed further in collaboration with DG Climate Action, , DG Eurostat, .
GHG emission projections reported by Member States in 2015 and 2016 under the EU Monitoring Mechanism. The reported data was quality checked and gap-filled by the EEA.
The Effort Sharing Decision (EDS) No 406/2009/EC establishes binding annual greenhouse gas emission targets for Member States for the period 2013–2020. These targets concern emissions from most sectors not included in the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS), such as transport, buildings, agriculture and waste. The ESD introduced an annual compliance cycle requiring a review of Member States’ greenhouse gas inventories. The EEA supports the annual reviews of Member States' greenhouse gas emission inventories to ensure that the European Commission has accurate, reliable and verified information on annual greenhouse gas in order to determine compliance with the ESD targets. The first annual review was carried out as a “trial review” in 2015 concerning Member States inventories for the year 2013. The first comprehensive review was carried out in 2016 for the years 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2014. The ESD dataset includes the results of the comprehensive review 2016. The review reports will be published by the European Commission.
Data about the EU emission trading system (ETS). The EU ETS data viewer provides aggregated data on emissions and allowances, by country, sector and year. The data mainly comes from the EU Transaction Log (EUTL). Additional information on auctioning and scope corrections is included.
Data on greenhouse gas emissions and removals, sent by countries to UNFCCC and the EU Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Mechanism (EU Member States). This data set reflects the GHG inventory data for 2016 as reported under the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change.
