Projection

DCE is responsible for preparing the official Danish projections of greenhouse gases and air pollution on request from the Danish Energy Agency and the Danish Environmental Protection Agency respectively. The first projection was made for the Danish Environmental Protection Agency in the project ‘Projection models 2010’. In this project a range of sector-related partial models were developed to enable projection of the emissions of SO2, NOx, NMVOC and NH3 2010 to 2030 (Illerup et al., 2002). Subsequently, the project “Projection of GHG emissions 2005 to 2030" was carried out in order to extend the projection models to include the greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O as well as HFCs, PFCs and SF6) and project the emissions for these gases to 2030 (Illerup et al., 2007). Further updates have occurred in the projects:

The following pages present information on the latest emissions projections for greenhouse gases and air pollution.
