Analyses of greenhouse gas statistics
Project on the analysis of greenhouse gas statistics and potential
In establishing a greenhouse gas statistics DB and analyzing the reduction potential, we shall support and analyze negotiations on the national obligations to be borne and establishment of domestic policies to respond to climate change.

Current status of greenhouse gas emission

  1. Indices related to greenhouse gas emission
    1. 1.Current status of CO2 emission based on fuel burning (data: based on IEA 2006)
      1. - Ranked 9th in the world (percentage of emission: 1.7%)
      2. - Increased by 107.6% compared to 1990
      3. - Ranked 26th in the world in terms of greenhouse gas emission per capita (9.86t CO2/person)
    2. 2. Rates of greenhouse gas increase during the period 1990 ~ 2006: 4.5% on the average per year

Records of works performed

  1. Collection of energy consumption and greenhouse gas statistics data and establishment of DB
    1. -DB on energy consumption by business place and greenhouse gas statistics established
  2. Securing the reliability of greenhouse gas statistics
    1. - Guidelines for the calculation of businesses’ greenhouse gas emission and good practices were developed.
    2. - National emission coefficients for the energy and industrial process sectors were developed.
  3. Provision of information related to energy statistics
    1. - Provision of online/offline information reinforced through the Internet and book publications
  4. Survey of greenhouse gas emission technologies and new technologies
    1. - Survey of the current status of greenhouse gas emission technologies (technical features, economic efficiency, time variant, etc.)
    2. - Survey of new technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emission
  5. Analysis of national greenhouse gas reduction potential
    1. - Analysis of national greenhouse gas reduction potential using technical models
