Balancing Transport Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Cities
A Review of Practices in Germany
This report offers an overview of common methods and practical experiences with modelling greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport in German cities and highlights good practice cases. It is meant to inform stakeholders in other parts of the world on how to account city-wide GHG emissions from transport.
The report covers:
- Basic information on the calculation of transport GHG emissions, core influencing factors on calculated emissions, as well as a range of methodological aspects.
- Emission factor databases and inventory models used in Germany and in other parts of the world.
- Methodologies for accounting GHG emission from the transport sector in cities, including a discussion of the available transport data sources for Germany.
