Information illustrates evolution of greenhouse-gas emissions over several decades
7 November 2013
The IEA has posted online its latest country-by-country listing of CO2 emissions from fossil-fuel combustion, with up to 51 years of detailed data broken down by fuel and cross-referenced with population, GDP and other indicators.
The 2013 edition of the annual data compilation, which will be available in book and CD form on 13 November 2013, details CO2 emissions related to electricity and heat production as well as transportation, industry and other categories, each explained by a pop-up window. The information can be arranged geographically, including a global view, or by fuel or timeline, dating back to 1960 for OECD countries and to 1971 for the rest of the world. Also available are emissions of other greenhouse gases such as methane, nitrous oxide and various fluorocarbons for select years, including 2010.
Online at the newly expanded IEA statistics web page, the data are the basis for an IEA special publication about energy-related CO2 emissions that will be featured at the upcoming COP19 climate talks in Warsaw.
Users can buy an annual subscription with unlimited access to the database, or they can buy pay-per-point data cards that cost as little as EUR 45 and never expire.
