The Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action ((EU) 2018/1999) requires Member States to report national projections of anthropogenic GHG emissions. Every two years, each EU Member State shall report GHG projections in a ‘with existing measures’ scenario for the years 2020, 2025, 2030, 2035 and 2040, by gas (or group of gases) and by sector. National projections shall take into consideration any policies and measures adopted at Union level. The reported data are quality checked by the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME).

Metadata

Additional information

Data reported by the EU Member States (MS) under the Governance of the Energy Union and Climate Action (EU) 2018/1999 (Governance Regulation)  have been quality checked and adjusted if appropriate by the European Topic Centre Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME).

GHG projections data are presented per MS, year, scenario, category and gas. There are originally reported data and final (corrected or gap-filled when necessary) data. Two types of projections are presented: projections taking into account the (current) existing domestic policies and measures (WEM, with existing measures) and projections taking also into account additional (planned) domestic policies and measures (WAM, with additional measures).

Being 2021 a mandatory year, all Member States reported their GHG projections.

The detailed methodology used for the quality assurance and quality control procedure for national and Union GHG projections is outlined in the report ‘Quality assurance and quality control procedure for national and Union GHG projections (2021)’  and can be downloaded from: https://www.eionet.europa.eu/reportnet/docs/govreg/projections
