Last updated on 10 Dec 2013 11:53 (cf. Authors)

Energy and heat generation constitute the most important sources of emissions in Germany. This holds true for almost every pollutant (a prominent exception of this rule being ammonia from agriculture). Consequently, this section will look into the sub-sectors making up the NFR 1 - Energy sector with great detail. For overview information on key activity statistics and the basis for fuel based estimates please refer to the Methods and Data Sources section.

NFR 1 - Energy consists of the following sub-categories:

NFR-Code Name of category
1.A Fuel Combustion Activities
1.A.1 Energy Industries
1.A.2 Fuel Combustion Activities in Industries and Construction
1.A.3 Transport
1.A.4 Small Combustion
1.A.5 Other (including Military)
1.B Fugitive Emissions
1.B.1 Solid Fuels
1.B.2 Oil and Natural Gas
1.B.3 Geothermal Energy
