CCC confirms UK emissions estimates have relatively low uncertainty


The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has found that uncertainty in the UK’s power sector emissions estimates is relatively low, with the level of uncertainty at 2.2% in 2014. The CCC’s report, Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions was published on Tuesday 11 April. It found that emissions estimates of the largest emitting fuels: coal and natural gas, have the lowest uncertainty, while biofuels and waste have the largest level of uncertainty. Coal was the largest source of emissions in the power sector in 2014, comprising 69% of emissions, with natural gas making up most of the rest at 28%.
