Emission projections

Emission projections are an important tool to track progress towards emission targets and there are international obligations for reporting of projections to both the European Union and the United Nations. The Department has for the past number of years developed projection models used to estimate the official Danish projections. The models are consistent with the emission inventories ensuring that the projections can be used directly in assessing progress towards targets. The emission projections are were possible based on official Danish projections such as the energy projection made by the Danish Energy Agency or the projection of agricultural activities carried out by Copenhagen University.

Detailed descriptions of and results from the latest projections are available here for greenhouse gases and air pollution.
